Gone, Not Forgotten

“Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. ‘Honour your father and mother’—this is the first commandment with a promise: ‘so that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth.”
— Ephesians 6:1-3 NRSVA —

Every time I hear this song, my thoughts quickly give way to images, words and emotions I experienced with my mom. Most of us would agree that our mothers were the greatest, and I agree wholeheartedly. I fully trust in the power and promises of God and that he specifically gave me my mom as a gift. We had a great connection as most daughters do, she was always my biggest fan, my great supporter, and a source of great strength, endurance and a caring soul. Today, is a day of remembering for me and my family, it has been 9 years since God called my mom home. She is missed every single day, I am sad some days still, but mostly I’m just thankful I was blessed to call her my mom and my friend. A lot of my maturity came to fruition only after she had passed. I know it was because of her teaching, her love, her constant determination, powerful patience and lots of prayers that I have success in my life now. I do wish, dare hope, she is able to know these successes were possible because she set such a high moral standard for me to follow.

This is not a sad day but a day to celebrate the life of a wonderful woman, daughter, aunt, cousin, sister, wife, mother, friend and a beautiful child of God.

Take time to tell something just how special they are to you on this day. Be thankful for opportunities to share life, love and laughter.

I love and miss you, mom ❤️
