When I saw this piece I knew I had to have it here in my blog. Here's why.....

In memory of my mom.... who sacrificed her world so that her children could have theirs. My comfort is knowing that she has her just reward sitting happily at the foot of the Almighty Throne.

 A mother's love is beyond measure - timeless - grand - It's what stands strong when all else has fallen apart. It's this beautiful magnificent love that keeps your world together..... that helps you become who you hope to be and who you were meant to be, by God's design.

Here's the piece, to quote...............
(from Spring in the Air)

Letter from a Mother to a Daughter:

"My dear girl, the day you see I’m getting old, I ask you to please be patient, but most of all, try to understand what I’m going through. If when we talk, I repeat the same thing a thousand times, don’t interrupt to say: “You said the same thing a minute ago”... Just listen, please. Try to remember the times when you were little and I would read the same story night after night until you would fall asleep. 

When I don’t want to take a bath, don’t be mad and don’t embarrass me. Remember when I had to run after you making excuses and trying to get you to take a shower when you were just a girl? 

When you see how ignorant I am when it comes to new technology, give me the time to learn and don’t look at me that way... remember, honey, I patiently taught you how to do many things like eating appropriately, getting dressed, combing your hair and dealing with life’s issues every day... 

The day you see I’m getting old, I ask you to please be patient, but most of all, try to understand what I’m going through. If I occasionally lose track of what we’re talking about, give me the time to remember, and if I can’t, don’t be nervous, impatient or arrogant. Just know in your heart that the most important thing for me is to be with you. 

And when my old, tired legs don’t let me move as quickly as before, give me your hand the same way that I offered mine to you when you first walked.

When those days come, don’t feel sad... just be with me, and understand me while I get to the end of my life with love. I’ll cherish and thank you for the gift of time and joy we shared. With a big smile and the huge love I’ve always had for you, I just want to say, I love you... my darling daughter. "  --- Unquote.

The most beautiful MOTHER'S DAY you can ever have is that one spent with her..... up close when you can look into her eyes and see the greatest love of all....  just for you!

  1. A touching post that everyone can relate with.

    1. Mother is a universal word, emotion, and experience.

      Thank you for coming by and for your comment. Blessings to you and yours, KP.

  2. Ellen,

    Hope the love and feelings behind this letter are understood by all of us. Mother is God's image on the earth.

    Take care

    1. That is my hope, too, Jack. My heart aches for neglected, abandoned, taken for granted, ignored, and abused mothers everywhere. But I remember something which my mother once said.... 'unless you become a mother yourself --- you will not understand'. And she is right about that in many ways. I hope the young would understand this otherwise they may have to face their own regrets one day. That's sad.

      God bless you and your family, Jack.
      Thanks for dropping by.
