May is Mom's Month

The last few days I have been looking back to where we were last year at this time.
Mom was in the hospital celebrating Mother's Day.
We sat around her bed watching the Player's Championship.
Jeff was doing well, which did not help Mom's blood pressure and heart rate!
She had been moved to the regular floor so our hopes were high that she would be
coming home soon.
Mom would end up back in the ICU.
It is here she would spend her birthday.
It was there that she would return home
to Heaven!
Those that know me, know that Mom and I had our struggles.
We often did not see eye to eye.
A lot of arguments and discontent.
But I loved her. I hope she knew that.
I am grateful that I got to be with her
everyday during this time. It was not always easy
but I was glad that I was there.
Mom I miss you and think of you everyday.
Happy Mother's Day
Happy Birthday!
Mother dear, I love you so.
Your happy, smiling face
Is such a joy to look at;
It makes home a lovely place.
Mother dear, I love you so.
Your lovely, shining eyes
Are just like stars that twinkle
Way up in the bright blue skies.
Mother dear, I love you so.
I’ll try the whole day through
To please our Heav’nly Father.
I’m so glad he gave me you.
