Dear Mom in Heaven

I sit here and ponder how very much

I’d like to talk with you today.

There are so many things

That we didn’t get to say

I know how much you care for me

And how much I care for you.

And each time I think of you,

I know you’ll miss me too.

An angel came and took you by the hand and said,

Your place was ready in Heaven, far above…

And you had to leave behind all those you dearly loved.

You had so much to live for, you had so much to do…

It still seems impossible that God was taking you.

And though your life on earth is past, in Heaven it starts anew.

You’ll live for all eternity, just as God has promised you.

And though you’ve walked through Heaven’s gate

We are never far apart

For every time I think of you,

You’re right here, deep within my heart

Mom, we are thinking of you on your birthday.  We talk of you still.  We haven’t forgotten you and we never will.  With love always,  your daughters…Kathy, Elaine, Gayle and Kelly

Mom

Happy Birthday Mom!  You would have been 81 years old today.  On this special day, I celebrate you!

Guiding Light Mom

Mom, from the time I was really young,
I realized I had someone…you,
who always cared,
who always protected me,
who was always there for me no matter what.
You taught me right from wrong,
and pushed me to do the right thing,
even when it was hard to do.
You took care of me when I was sick,
and your love helped make me well.
You had rules,
and I learned that when I obeyed them,
my life was simpler, better, richer.
You were and are
the guiding light of my life.
My heart is filled with love for you,
my teacher, my friend, my mother.

May they rest in peace….

Happy Birthday mom!  Today you would have been 80 years young.

It’s hard to believe that it has been only 5 months since you left us and even harder not to pick up the phone to call you and wish you a happy birthday.  But today, I celebrate your life and the memories that you have created for me.  To remember your laughter as we chatted about various things from the weather, to your grandchildren, to what was going on in my life.  Listening to you speak in half English and half Japanese to me.  (something that I really miss hearing) Wishing that I could hear your voice once more, for only just a minute.  We used to talk for hours on end about just anything and nothing.  I miss watching my  kids talk to you, knowing that they sometimes had a hard time understanding what you were saying.  They would smile at me and shrug their shoulders, but just kept talking to you, telling you that they loved and missed you.

I remember visiting you in the hospital in Billings, MT, spending days and evenings with you.  Some times we would talk, some times we would just be quiet in our own thoughts.  But every night before I left the hospital, I told you I loved you and that I’d see you the next day.  I remember that last night I saw you (as I had to go home) that you gave me a kiss and a hug and a special longing look, like you were memorizing my face.  I remember turning around to look at you in your hospital room, wanting to turn back and not go home.  I left that night with a heavy heart.  That night, that moment,  is something that I will always remember.   No words can ever express that feelings that I felt.  As I looked back, I know you were saying “good-bye” to me, even though you never really said the words.  It is something I will cherish all my life.

So today, mom, I want to wish you a Happy Birthday and to remember you as you were – strong, brave, loving…special.

You may be gone from this physical earth, but you live within me every day, every moment, every second.

Happy Birthday, mom….I love you

Memories

 

I feel a warmth around me

like your presence is so near,

And I close my eyes to visualize

your face when you were here,

I endure the times we spent together

and they are locked inside my heart,

For as long as I have those memories

we will never be apart,

Even though we cannot speak no more

my voice is always there,

Because every night before I sleep

I have you in my prayer.

-Louise Bailey

Mom in her early 20's

Mom, this blog entry is dedicated to you in honor of your 79th birthday.  As a mother, I now understand the sacrifice, the unconditional love, the selflessness and the patience you gave of yourself for your children.  The past couple of years, you have encountered some hardships that a child never wants to see their parents go through.  Yet, you are a survivor and every day you show me how much a mother’s love and strength can carry her through even through the hardest of times.  You are my inspiration to continue to live my life to the fullest and to never give up in any circumstances.  Your constant love and affection has given me the strength to be my best.

Thank you

To be a mother is not an easy task,

Yet you do it proudly everyday no matter what is asked

You have turned your baby into a beautiful young lady.

You were there for me since the very beginning and saved me countless tears

The pushy and wise advice you gave will carry me through the years.

With my every mistake or wrongful deed,

You were always there to understand.

You put no limits on my dreams or anything else I wish to do.

You never forget to say you care or that you love me too.

The smile and tears upon your face when I achieve provides me with more value

In my heart then you’d ever believe.

There is no other person that will shape my heart the way you’ve done,

Your job finished perfectly for your precious daughters and son.

We have had a rocky road through triumph and catastrophe, hard time and despair,

But not a single moment of time of not having a wonderful mother there.

You have always put in your last with love and my whole life is not enough time for me to repay you.

We always put our disagreements to the side and manage to make it through.

I know that my teen years have driven you crazy but you have guided me with assurance along the way.

You have given me comfort and certainty with every breath I take within the day.

Your little girl is growing up but your baby girl will always remain deep inside me.

There are not enough words that can thank you for everything you have helped me emotionally and physically.

I have my whole future ahead of me and you are the women that has leaded me and guided me towards the proper path.

How can one simple day prove that much thanks and love to someone who has pushed this far and still is working her way?

No other person deserves a more wonderful birthday.

– Devon

May your birthday be filled with joy and celebration!

Happy Birthday Mom!  You are forever loved!

Your loving daughter, Gayle

I saw a small clip on the Today show this morning about how these “reborn” babies are the latest fad.  Its kind of eerie that these dolls look so close to being human.  And I am not quite sure how I feel about grown adult women carrying these reborn dolls around like they were their own child.  Some say they own these babies as a source of stress reliever.

As I understand these dolls can be purchased at a beginning price of $1000 (USD) and up.

With a price tag like that, I think a cabbage patch doll would suffice!  😉
