Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 24th day of August, 2013.

One day before my Mother’s Birthday.

She passed twenty years ago this November.

She would have been “75” tomorrow.

It is funny I cannot imagine her old.

I miss her.

She had the best sense of humour and a bit “raw” at times but definitely a funny lady.

My Mom had the biggest heart and would have given the shirt from her back, and very often she did.

It didn’t matter who you were or what you did she helped those in need.

I think it was the “underdog” – those who didn’t have anyone else that she felt it necessary to help.

She had the best work ethic of anyone I know living or passed.

My Mother worked hard every day of her shortened life.

Although we didn’t always see eye to eye (me being the eldest) – our relationship worked on a different level.

She often referred to me as her “little sister” and that is sometimes what I felt like in comparison to my siblings.

But that is okay.  I know she loved me and that is truly what counts.

I learned to work hard and help others from her and for that I am truly thankful.

She was taken from us at the early age of “55”.

It is odd I turned “56” this August – only a couple of weeks ago.

I wished that everyone had someone who was a truly good “ANGEL” in their lives.

Someone to help – someone to love …

Happy Birthday Mom – We miss you.

I know wherever you are that you are entertaining and helping out where needed.
