A part of my heart…

“I love you”, is something I can still hear my Mommy telling me.  “Be a good girl and help with your brothers”.  My incredible sweet mother died at the incredible tender age of thirty.  Four children ages nine, eight, seven, and three.  Cervical Cancer.  She died three years after diagnosis.  Pretty sure she had it while pregnant with my little brother.  

I am the nine-year-old.  My mother’s oldest and her only daughter.

The pain never leaves your heart.  Ever.

Mother’s Day should not be the only day you tell your Mom how much you love her.  I know that there are circumstances that beg to differ on this topic, but for the most part we all love our Mother.

I know there are so many of you out there that wishes you had just a few more moments with your Mom.  I know I do.  What would my nine-year-old self say?   I know I would hold her so close to me that I would never forget her smell.

My mother died forty-three years ago.  Not a day goes by that I don’t miss her.  

I know my mother is always with me.  I feel her.  I smell her.  I hear her.  I just wish I could hold her and tell her how much I love her.  Please, don’t lose the chance to tell your mommy how much you love her.

Happy Mother’s day to you. 

I was blessed with four incredible children and five almost six precious grandchildren.  Being a mother comes in so many forms.  Happy Mother’s day to whichever blessing of being a mother you are.

These are my loves…

Such a lovely post. I’m sure you’re mom would have been so proud of you. It is a huge loss losing your mom in childhood. Mine died when I was just shy of six.

Beautiful. I know the feeling of losing a parent at a young age. Almost 28 years later the pain and disappointment still sits on shoulders heavy.

Aww this is such a sweet post! I’m so sorry for the loss of your mother; I’m very close to my mum so I can’t even think about what it would be like if she weren’t here, but I love that you’re turning this the other way around to see your incredible children and grandbabies. And what sweeties they all are! We’ve already had our mother’s day in the UK but I forget it’s different elsewhere!
Happy Mother’s day, I hope you and your family are keeping as safe & as well as possible  ♥

Your mum was so young – you were so young when you lost her. It must have been devastating for you. I love your gorgeous gallery of photos. Stay safe, keep well.
