Happy Mother's Day Mom




If Roses grow in Heaven,

Lord please pick a bunch for me,

Place them in my Mother's arms

and tell her they're from me.

Tell her I love her and miss her,

and when she turns to smile,

place a kiss upon her cheek

and hold her for awhile.

Because remembering her is easy,

I do it every day,

but there's an ache within my heart

that will never go away

Re: M&M Poem

Life throws obstacles that are tough to pull through.  With these special M&Ms, know I'm thinking of you...

The colors stand for something you'll soon find out.  You have love, faith and hope in your heart, no doubt.

Red is for the love you give to everyone you meet from old friends to new, even neighbors down the street.
Your smile brings sunshine even on a cloudy day.

Blue is by far my favorite M&M to share.  Know you're in my thoughts and daily prayer.

Green is a healing color and gives another chance to relieve some of your stress and do a little dance.

Orange looks  hot but it doesn't give off heat.  Your strength and determination won't let you be beat.

Mother Nature is represented with the color Brown.  It's a strong force that picks you up when you're feeling down.

As you read this message, from the bottom of my heart, know I'll always be there for you from the very start.

Re: Happy Birthday, Mom

Remembering My Mother

© Belinda Stotler
My Mother seems so far away from me,
On that beautiful white shore across the sea.
Yet I remember love’s soft glow upon her face,
And the feel of her touch and tender embrace.

When I am weary from the burdens I’ve borne,
And the path is unclear and I feel so forlorn,
I remember her loving support was always near,
And her advice made the path ahead seem clear.

When I feel there is no one who seems to care,
Or when the heartache seems too hard to bear,
I remember how she always stood by my side,
And would tenderly wipe away the tears I cried.

When there are moments of great joy and pride,
And I wish my Mother was standing at my side,
I remember she saw more than I thought I could be,
And know I owe my triumphs to her belief in me.

When I reminisce about the things she used to say, 
And I miss her and think she is so far away,
I remember what she gave lives on through me,
And one day I’ll see her on the shore across the sea.

Mom passed away on 3/25/2009.  If she were still alive she

would be celebrating her 90th birthday tomorrow on
March 24th. I think about her all the time and miss her so much...

                                HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOM
