I Love my Mommy

I LOVE my Mommy ~ I miss her already.

Today she breathed her last breath and left this earth. She was a precious soul...caring, loving, giving. She was always kind to everyone,  always thinking of others. Her creative spirit and artistic talents blessed many. Her legacy will live on in her artwork left behind, and also in the hearts of the artists she tutored/inspired. You "raised me right" Mom. You taught me to be kind, compassionate, understanding & tolerant. You taught me to use my God-given talents to bless others.

I miss you Mommy. I wish we had lived closer together.  4500 miles apart is too far to visit often, too far to talk every day on the phone. I wish we had time to paint together, watch movies together, time to talk about the things that are important to women. I wish I had known you better. I wish you had kept a journal.....maybe I will do these things now with my daughter & her daughters.

I love you Mommy. I thank God that he entrusted my care to you (& Dad). I can only hope that you can feel my love for you radiating heavenward.


  1. Dear Emily,

    I am so sorry for the passing of your dear sweet Mother. As you know my Mom went to Heaven just a little over two years ago. The precious memories your dear Mother left is certainly a treasure, hold them close to your heart. One day soon we will be joined with our precious Moms once again. Keeping you in my prayers dear Emily. Take care.



  2. I'm so sorry to hear about your mothers passing. It sounds like she was a *wonderful*, wonderful woman. ((hugs)) to you and your family.
