It is an anniversary that always makes me so sad but at the same time, makes me smile.
I have so many wonderful memories of my Mom. She was smart, savvy, caring, strong, a great Mom, a real Mom, always thinking of her daughters and wanting the best for them. I loved her. I miss her. I hated that cancer took her life.
This poem was sent to me today and it is so perfect:
If flowers grow in heaven Lord,
then pick a bunch for me, then
place them in my mothers arms and
tell her they’re from me.
Tell her that I love and miss her and
when she turns to smile,
place a kiss upon her cheek and
hold her for awhile.
