One early morning in April of 2009 my mom went to be a flower in God’s garden. Every year around this time I remember her sacrifices for us her children, her unconditional love and the amazing way she always lifted us up. She laughed loud and prayed louder; her God was her all and I so miss her … a lot.
But this note is really for you, my awesome readers and fellow bloggers, to thank you for visiting me just when I need a lift. It’s to say I am so very grateful to all of you for raising me up over and over again 🙂
And now it’s your turn. Is there someone in your life who lifts you up? Someone who helps you to be strong when you feel weakest, supporting you through thick and thin? Then let them know how much they mean to you, especially if it’s your mom or dad or another family member/close friend; share this beautiful song as demonstrative of your love and gratitude (Josh sings it really really well!) – while you still can.
In the meantime, thanks for the lift; I appreciate your dropping by and better yet the comments you leave in this small corner space!
I said a Mother’s Day prayer for you
to thank the Lord above
for blessing me with a lifetime
of your tender-hearted love.
I thanked God for the caring
you’ve shown me through the years,
for the closeness we’ve enjoyed
in time of laughter and of tears.
And so, I thank you from the heart
for all you’ve done for me
and I bless the Lord for giving me
the best mother there could be!

It’s the month of May, the month when we celebrate our moms and all they have done for us. I lost my mom in 2009 and still miss her very much. It doesn’t matter now how annoying she could be sometimes by insisting I check in or do something I didn’t feel like doing; it doesn’t matter now how she would just pass by unannounced whenever she was in my neighbourhood; it only matters that she loved me and I loved her. Yes, she is truly in my heart and always will be.
Whether your mom is here on earth with you or has gone to be a flower in God’s garden we are sure you loved her and want the world to know just how much. So how can we help? By sharing this love of course!
And it’s quite simple. Just go on over to our Living Day by Day Journals Facebook page and in the comments box, share some thoughts on your mom. The person with the most likes for their comment will receive … well, it’s all on the page. Pretty easy right? Right! So let’s get to sharing and making this month totally awesome for our moms 🙂
For all the times you gently picked me up,
When I fell down,
For all the times you tied my shoes
And tucked me into bed,
Or needed something
But put me first instead.
For everything we shared,
The dreams, the laughter,
And the tears,
I love you with a “Special Love”
That deepens every year.
