Thanksgiving

I am giving thanks today, for one reason in particular. Most people are thankful for time with family today, and I am too. But the thing on my mind that I'm thankful for today is ~ my mom. No, she is not physically here with me, but I am thankful for her. I am so blessed to have been raised by a wonderful woman like my mom. She loves my dad and always did, so very much. She loved my brother and I as children with a great motherly love. She did many things for me over the years. The best thing she ever did for me was to love me unconditionally. I could always count on her. I could tell her ANYTHING, and know that she would still love me. As an adult she was my best friend and supported me so very much. She was my rock when I left an abusive ex. She supported me when I met Matt and dated him. She celebrated with me when I married Matt. No matter what I needed, she could give it to me. I miss her physical presence, but I know that her love goes with me every single day. I feel her in my heart. I love her FOREVER.

I'm thankful for Matt, who became my best friend when we dated. Without him, I could not have handled the last few weeks since my mom went on to heaven. He is the best husband and friend a woman could ever even hope for. There are no words to express my love for him. I praise God for him every day.

"All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel Mother." Abraham Lincoln

Not everyone is blessed with an angel mother, those of us who are never forget it!

Thinking of you today and rejoicing that our angel mothers are with our Lord and we will see them again one day.

Not all are blessed with an angel mother - I was not. I am reading your tribute and wishing it could have been like that for me but it could be for me and my daughters. Again, thank you so much for showing me what a mother/daughter relationship should be. You are such a sweetheart!
