Kisses From Heaven

Friday, March 10, 2017

 Someone told me that no matter how old you are, when you lose your mother it's still very difficult.  My mom passed 9 years ago (on March 12).  For many years, it was just the two of us after my dad passed when I was 17.  She was one of the strongest, kindest women I ever knew and her wisdom was uncanny.  

She helped raise our daughter for which I will be forever grateful.  I see a lot of my mom in my daughter and they had a very special relationship - like I had with my grandmother.

While I miss her everyday and am sad for the things she is not here to share with us, I believe with all my heart that she is happy in heaven and blowing kisses down to her family.


 I want to thank these challenges for letting me share my card using Avery Elle Mother's Day set...
