My Mom’s Memorial Service is tomorrow and as one can imagine there has been little else on my mind. She was much more than a mother. She was my Mom. She was an adviser, counselor and a disciplinary but she was fair and honest, without being mean, as they come.
She raised me to be my own person but also to be a caring person by her example. Actions truly speak louder than words. I could have done a lot worse as far as parents go but not any better. I have stated this to several people before and I will say it a gain here: I would wish my parents on anyone.
May your New Year be filled with courage to face the hardships, peace to see you safely through and Hope that all will be well in the end as you start the next chapter anew.
Peace, The Jagged Man
I am so touched by this post and I would add a wise proverb “the heaven is under the Mother’s feet” which the meaning is The true love is the love of a Mother. Thank you for sharing this and wish you happy new year. All the best !
Very wise proverb indeed. Thanks for sharing and all the best to you as well!
