REMEBERING MUM:

Tomorrow here in the UK we celebrate
"Mother's Day"
Above is a photo of my mum on the left
with hsuband and mother-in-law.
REMEMBERING MUM:
You were a mum in a million,
One with a heart of gold.
Your first priority was your family.
Your memory will never grow old.

Although your life was very tough,
You taught me right from wrong.
You set me a good example,
Your love made me strong.

I thank you for so many things.
You sacrificed for me.
Yes, life was very hard for you.
Dad died when I was just three.

Throughout my life you were always there,
When I needed you.
The roles were reversed many years ago
 As  I spent your last day with you.

As I sat and held your hand,
As you passed from one life to another.
With tears in my eyes, I said my goodbyes,
To a lady I was proud to call mother.

  8. I miss my mother too. I used to call her nearly every morning and we'd talk about all sorts of things. She'd keep me up on family and hometown news. Funny how that cycle of life goes round and we who can have a lot of time with our mothers are fortunate.
