Happy Mother's Day

Mom's Love Letter

Finding out I was going to have you filled my heart with joy,
At that moment I didn't care if you were a girl or a boy.

I just knew that you were a precious gift from God above,
and that you were someone with whom I had fallen in love.

My love for you began to grow at that very moment in time, 
From then on you were the thoughts that filled my mind.

Thoughts of how glad I would be to hold you in my arms; 
To see your beautiful face and be awestruck by your charms.

Thoughts of the wonderful things you would say and do. 
From that day on all my thoughts revolved around you.

It's been many years now since that wonderful day; 
The day that you were born and you stole my heart away.

I have cherished every moment I have watched you grow 
Every year I've loved you more than you will ever know.

You've always been the love of my life and the apple of my eye
and my heart will always follow after you until the day I die.

        Love, Mom

  For our sweet viewers that no longer have their moms with them I want to share another poem that I wrote for Carrie and Diana last year. 

A Message from Mom

My sweet child I wanted you to know 
even though I'm not with you anymore I still love you so.

I know that you miss me and would love to have me near, 
but Heaven is such a beautiful place and I just love it here.

I have forgotten all my worries, and I don't have a care. 
Everything has been joyful and I haven't shed a tear.

Honey I must tell you I'm now feeling right as rain,
there's no more sickness here and no more pain.

Since I got here I have seen so many wonderful, marvelous things, 
I've seen beautiful flowers bloom and heard the heavenly choir sing.

I've worshiped at the throne of the Almighty and seen Jesus too;
I've walked the golden streets and had angels in view.

I've rested by the river of life, and chatted with old friends,
I've even been at the gate to welcome new ones in.

My sweet daughter I love you and I'm waiting for the day,
when you will be up here with me forever to stay.

Until that time comes please keep holding on to Jesus' hand,
and He will see you safely through and bring you to this glorious land.

Hugs and Kisses,
