Remembering My Momma


Dear Momma, I cannot believe that it has been two years today since you went to heaven. I miss you more with every breathe I take, and there is not a day that passes by, that I do not think of you. You were so much more to me than just my momma. You were my best friend, my hero, my confidant, the wind beneath my wings. Thank you for being such a wonderful momma to me, and showing me what real courage looks like. I know how hard the last several years of your life were, and especially the last six months before you passed away. You were constantly having to go to the doctor, and the hospital. You were so sick, and weak. You reminded me of a beautiful, fragile china doll, that needed to be handled with much care. And, I did care momma, so very much. Watching you slowly fade away, broke my heart. You were so brave, and you never complained, no matter how much pain you were in. You always smiled for me, and held my hand. We always blew kisses to each other, and told each other I love you several times a day. You fought so valiantly, you were a woman made of pure strength. I praise God that you are free from pain, and that you are dancing on the clouds. Momma, I pray that I am half the woman you were, you were so awesome. I know we will be back together one day, what a glorious day that will be. Until then, please know that I am here loving you, cherishing all the memories of you, that are stored in my heart, and blowing sweet kisses up to heaven, straight to my precious angel momma.

Mother's are so special. The older I get, the more I appreciate mine. When I was younger, I wanted her to be perfect. Now that I have my own children, I realize that a mother can not be perfect. I think that I expected too much out of her.

Denise,

I have been praying for you all day today. I know how much you miss your momma. Please know that even though you can't have children through your physical body; you are a "mother" to so many! You uplift me and encourage me EVERY SINGLE DAY!!! Your friendship means so much and God uses you in such a powerful way, hon!!!

~Much Love & Many Prayers,
