Happy Birthday, Dear Mother

Posted March 4th, 2015 by Ellen and filed in Family, Personal


Today would have been my Mother’s 100th birthday. She died unexpectedly a year following the death of her own mom, and was buried on my birthday.   I shall miss her always.

“Somewhere in a memory,

Someone wiped away a tear

Held me close and loved me

Thank you, Mother dear.”

I used to have this little poem (author unknown) hanging on our kitchen wall.  But I took it down, as I cried every time I read it.  After 26 years without her, I still cry.

    My mother has been gone only 2 1/2 years but I miss her all the time. I just don’t think we really ever get use to not having our mothers here for us to run to when life hurts.
