Mama, thank you for the wisdom and grace which you exhibited throughout your life. I would like to have those same character traits and pray that I will be remembered as such. Until I see you.

Comes The Dawn

After a while you learn the subtle difference
Between holding a hand and chaining a soul,
And you learn that love doesn’t mean leaning 
And company doesn’t mean security,
And you begin to learn that kisses aren’t contracts
And presents aren’t promises,
And you begin to accept your defeats
With your head up and your eyes open
With the grace of a woman, not the grief of a child,
And you learn to build all your roads on today,
Because tomorrow’s ground is too uncertain for plans,
And futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight.
After a while you learn
That even sunshine burns if you get too much.
So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul,
Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.
And you learn that you really can endure...
That you really are strong,
And you really do have worth.
And you learn and learn...
With every goodbye you learn.

I think my Mom would be proud of me if I learned the lessons in this poem.

Be carefree now, Mom as you never could be in life. Breathe easy finally. Don’t worry Mom, we’ll be fine. And please say hello to Dad.

My mom beat all I have ever seen for, "paying it forward." She would do it everywhere she went. She would do it at the grocery store, the drive thru lane at a fast food place. If there was a way my mom would pay it forward.

My mom was also such an inspiration to me for her strength. There was a time when my mom was a single mother of four without the help of our father. The first job she got after we started our new life was at a hardware store. She managed to pay the rent and always put food on the table. Eventually she became The Director of Commerce for the state of North Carolina. She did it one step at a time. She never gave up. She face her responsibilities head on.

The biggest compliment that I could ever give my mom though is simply the way she made me feel. She was my greatest advocate. I love the way that she would introduce me as her son. She just had a way of saying that with such pride. I never knew or felt that I deserved it, but I sure did feel the love in her voice when she said it.

When my mom was very sick and I was her caretaker, she just had this way of looking at me. It was like, "You really came through for me. Thank you." My mom thanked me. Believe me. She was the caretaker in our relationship.

The first time I ever gave my mom morphine, it really hit her hard. She slept for like 14 hours. When she woke up (finally) she was very loopy. She asked me who I was. That shook me to the core. She asked me if I lived here with her. Lastly she asked me the strangest question. She said, "Do you have a life?" I laughed and told her yes. She said, "I don't see how. It seems like all you ever do is take care of me." She wasn't even sure who I was but she remembered that I was always there for her. I told her that she was my mom and that I loved her with all of my heart. She looked at me with the same confused look I would give her when she told me that she loved me. When she would say it to me I would always wonder what I had done to be deserve being loved that much.

I guess that I didn't have to deserve it. That's what moms do. There is not a more beautiful word to me in the world than, "Mom."

She will forever have my heart. I love you mom. I could shout it from the roof tops. Thank you, mom. You gave me life and then you made it beautiful.

Wonderful Mother

By Patrick O’Reilly

God made a wonderful mother,
A mother who never grows old;
He made her smile of the sunshine.
And He moulded her heart of pure gold;
In her eyes He placed bright shining stars,
In her cheeks fair roses you see;
God made a wonderful mother,
And He gave that dear mother to me.

A Tribute to My Mother! 

 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.  Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.  She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness. She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Proverbs 31:10, 25-28

I think the above verse is applicable to my mom. I  was blessed to have such a mother. I was blessed to be in her life for 47 years. She was a godly mother who tried to instill godly principles in her children. She was a light in our household , the glue that held everything together. A peacemaker my mom was. As a child,  I was always observing my mother and she never tried to steer us wrong. She was an encourager. She taught me to save money early and to pay my bills on time. She was old school and believed that no matter how old you were you should respect your elders. She always worked and instilled that in me so I worked as soon as I was old enough to hold a job. There are so many things I learned from my mom. Patience was not one of them. My mom was very patient, she had to be with the kids she had. I am of the microwave generation I want it now. I want to see my mom now. I want tot hurry through this life so I can see her again. But God is also patient and I have to wait until He says come home.

My dad did not appreciate the jewel he had in my mom.  I don't think my dad really knew how to love. Even though she did not have a great marriage, she was not a bitter woman. There are so many things I admire about her it would take all day and then some to describe it all. So mom, I'll just say, I love you and thank you for bringing me into the world, loving me and supporting me and sharing your heart with me. Til we see each other again.

I'd like to kick this page off with a tribute to my mom Mary, who meant the world to me. Mama was very generous and kind. She always put others needs before her own, especially her children. People who knew her described her as a loyal friend and very wise. I know I learned a lot from her over the years. Mama wasn't perfect, but she was perfect for me. Words cannot express how much I miss her, but I wanted to do something to honor her memory, even if it's something as small as creating this discussion group.

Mom until we see each other again, I will try to live a life that is pleasing to our Lord and to you.
