My Mother

There are days that I just miss my mother so much. I wish I could call her and tell her when I am having a bad day. I know she would give me words of encouragement. When I am struggling with something, she would help me to look on the bright side and become a better person. She would always lift me up and support me. She would love me unconditionally. She would welcome each of her grandchildren with love and adoration- she could make you feel like the most important person in the world with her love! She would only have kinds words to say about anyone. When I make mistakes she would still love me, help me to learn from them, and encourage me to do better, supporting me in my efforts to better myself. She would share her wealth of knowledge with me- and she sure has a lot of knowledge to share! I would love to call her and tell her about the cute things my children say and do, hear her laughter over it. It is hard to see my children growing up not spending time with her, getting to know what a wonderful woman she is. She is what I hope to become one day- the best role model I could ever imagine. She is a wonderful mother who loved me and wanted the best for myself and all of her children.
I know that she is aware of my bad days, the cute things my children say and do, and all of the important things in our lives. It gives me great comfort to know that she knows my children and one day we will all be together again.

Thank you for being such a wonderful mother!
