The Day My Mother Was Born

Today would have been my mother's 91st Birthday.  She passed away in her 70th year.  

My mother was always there for me. She was the most loving mother even though she never really knew her own mother.

She mothered everyone, even her own peers. She was one of those people who touched the hearts of all she met. She taught us to love unconditionally, to forgive completely, and to love God with all our heart and soul.

Once way back in 1990 when I managed Boardwalk Fries I had been up to my waist in work and almost that high in flooding water coming in through the back door, not to mention that I had overflowed the front sink too!

My assistant called off that day and the kids that worked the night before left a mess and did not do any of the prep work needed for an on time opening in the morning.

Just as I was ready for a nervous breakdown the door bell rang at the back door. I was so upset, as I had thought it was the bakery delivery man with the rolls...yet more work for me to do.

I answered the door and there she stood...my guardian angel...my mother. I did not call her that morning, and yet she knew I needed her. She told me that she had a feeling that I needed her. She spent that morning helping me prep and get ready to open on time.

I will never stop needing her. She is here for me in my sisters, my daughters, my cousins, and my friends, as she left her imprint on all who knew her.

She is so in my heart, she could never be gone.

Mother I Miss You
               John Tesh

Is it Me
Or have I decieved myself
I thought I heard you call my name
Out in the pouring rain

I really thought
I thought I saw your face
But after a second look
I saw I made a clear mistake

Mother I miss you
At nights I just wish
You were here with me
So we can laugh and talk again

Mother I miss you
but I'll just kiss you
And send it on the wind
'Cause you know
I plan to see you again

So much I wanted to show you
So much I wanted to give
I thought our time would be much longer
Missin' my best friend
