My mother went quickly and it broke my heart that I was in the midst of trying to learn more about her life as a child, growing up, and all the struggles and triumphs on the way. One good thing is that she is in heaven.


When I think of my mother

I think of golden apples and the pies she made

I think of late Saturday night floor washing

Baking of bread and rolls so delicious

They still make my mouth water.

 

When I think of my mother

I think of skin

Soft like butter and breath fresh and clean

I think of piles of ironing and the care she gave

I see a deft brush

A canvas rich with colors and impressive drawings

 

When I think of my mother

I think of the sacrifices she made

No candle lit dinners

No dresses but two

No money to splurge

No getting away

 

When I think of my mother I think of all that I’d say

 If only I could

When I think of my mother I think of the last squeeze 

Of her hand and her last

“I love you”

A GREAT tribute to mom. Yes, she is in Heaven.

Our daughters lost their mom. That was over 27 years ago. They never got over it.

Peace, love, abundant blessings,

She was a wonderful mother in spite of her situation. My mother is still alive and number fondly those home-baked bread pastries and canned goods. So does she.
