Mother’s Day

If Roses grow in Heaven,
Lord pick a bunch for me,
Place them in my Mothers arms and tell her they're from me.
Tell her that I Love Her, and when she turns to smile, place a kiss upon her cheek and hold her for a while.
Because remembering her is easy, I do it every day, but there is an ache within my heart that will never go away.

~Author Unknown.

I dialed my mothers number the other day. I wanted to share with her something hilarious Sweet Boy and the Fashionista had done. All to soon I remembered that her line doesn’t reach all the way anymore. I wonder how long I will do this?

So instead I will share with you how blessed I am to mother these two nutters.

Have a happy mothers day. Everyday.

I thought of you the other day when we were talking about Mother's Day. I love what you said about her line not reaching all the way. You know where she is, you just can't reach her...yet. You are in our prayers. Happy Mother's Day to you....your nutters are adorable. Lisa~

I've stopped by twice today and each time the video "is not available."
You are in my thoughts and prayers this Mother's Day.

Your Friend,

This poem touched my heart. My mother has been gone 8 years. It never gets easier.

For some reason the video is not working...

Happy Mother's Day, Laura!

Oh Laura,
That brought a tear! My sweet Mom is up there too, and I miss her every's been 7 years now.
Have a lovely Mother's Day with your family.

Dear Laura,

This first Mother's Day with your mom will be full of emotion, I'm sure. Memories crowding in, tears welling up, and joy for the years you shared and for the wonderful family God has given you to mother.

I hope your day is special.

What a sweet sentiment...I'll have to share this with my husband. I still have my mother-in-law's number programmed into my cell phone. Sometimes I call it just for the heck of it. Strange huh? I wish we could be in TN to put flowers on her grave for mother's day. Wishing you a good day Sunday - BIG HUGS!! said...


Third try was a charm. Isn't great how children can lead us to moments to be in - silliness and laughter - contagious smiles. Dancing like no one is watching. Little did he know his jig is immortalized on his mother's blog.
Thank you for sharing the beautiful poem. It tugs at my heart strings.

Your Friend,

Laura, what a very sweet thought. It reminds me not to take my sweet mother for granted while I still have her here to enjoy. The video really made me smile. Have a wonderful Mother's Day!


The Boston Lady said...

I can surely relate. This is my 8th Mother's Day without my mother. The first was the hardest. The ache is always there, but the beautiful thing about mothers is they never really leave us. I feel my mother everyday.

Video is priceless and your mom is having herself a nice smile over it.

I know how you feel, I have my Mothers number on my mobile after 4 yrs. and on old notebooks around the house, now and again I have rang the number knowing the line will ring out but its comforting to just ring the old familiar number. It gets easier with time but you always miss her so much!

MarySue said...

I loved and appreciated your poem...thinking of my dear mother who is also in Heaven. May I use this poem on my blog.

Laura, what a sweet post. I love that you wrote "her line doesn't reach all the way", what a great way to think of it. I still have my Mom, but who knows for how long.
Enjoy your darling children, Happy Mother's Day! xoxo Lidy

What DID you put in his morning breakfast hahaha, that was cute.

Julie said...

I was thinking of you with Mother's Day coming up. I wanted to stop by and tell you I am praying for you.

This will by my husband's first Mother's Day without his mom as well.

Lisa said...

Praying for you Laura, this Mother's Day.:)
PS Your children are beautiful!

Mildred said...

Praying that God will surround you with His love today especially Laura. Thank you for sharing your "entertaining" children with us. Happy Mother's Day to you. It was good to hear you chuckle on the video.

Sweet girl, I am so sorry to hear about you losing your mother. I have been MIA and didn't know. Sending you warm hugs and my deepest sympathy. XOXOXO

I'm also sorry about the car wreck. I hope you are doing much better now. Please know that I am thinking of you and holding you close at heart.

My mother is in Heaven, too, and the anniversary of her death is approaching. She's been gone almost 20 years. It's hard to believe. Maybe our mothers have hooked up in Heaven and are having a grand old time! :-)



My Cottage Charm said...

I know realizing you couldn't phone your mom must have knocked the wind out of your sails. :-( I hope it gets easier with time. It's wonderful to know that you will get to see your mom again when Heaven becomes your home. Blessings my friend. :) Oh and your kids are adorable!

Things That Inspire said...

Oh Laura, I have been out of touch and am so sorry to read about your mother. Your poem really affected me, because I too lost my mother (10 years ago) and I particularly feel her absence now that my girls are getting a bit older (7, 10, and 12) and I am dealing with so many of the same trials and tribulations that she dealt with raising me. At least once a week I wing up a silent prayer of apology when my oldest does some of the same things that I used to do as a child!

It sounds like you are a fantastic mom to your kids, and a fantastic daughter to your mom.

It is so reassuring to know that time doesn't ever lessen the handprint of love mothers leave on our heart,each uniquely fitting her own children. Unfortunately, the ache to share a funny moment or a desire for the hug that only a mother can absorb your whole pain away in one sweet smelling embrace..that lingers too. YOU are a living loving testimony to your Mom's memory and your children are blessed! Missing my own since 8-31-2006,Sue in Mich.
