One Last Letter To Mom - Death Holds No Power
The last time I saw her she was waving from the porch. I had absolutely no idea she was waving to us for the last time.
If I had known, I would have turned the car around and held her for hours, days, or even weeks. I would have told her some things that I never did. I would have given her the hero's goodbye that she deserved.
I do feel that she can see me now, and that she watches over me with the same motherly care she gave me here on Earth. I have decided to tell her those things now.
I thank you for always loving me in spite of myself. No mistake was ever so bad that you did not absorb it under the umbrella of a Mother's love.
I thank you for loving my kids as though they were me. They still feel your love and presence.
I thank you for surrounding me with love and care throughout my lifetime and teaching me that being a man was more than just showing up.
I thank you for all the years of laughter, and fun. We still feel those years every day.
I thank you for bringing me into this world and protecting me both from the world and myself.
I thank you for my generous spirit. I learned that from you.
I thank you for putting me first above all others.
I thank you for showing me how to tie my shoes.
I thank you for those late nights of watching cheesy horror movies together. I still think of you every time I see one.
I thank you for our long talks.
I thank you for the numerous sacrifices you made. We never did without a need, and that was a testament to your drive.
I thank you for my belief in God, and knowing Jesus as the salvation of my life.
I thank you for accepting me as a flawed human being, and loving me anyway.
Most of all, I thank you for the role model you were for me. I hope to be half the person you were in your lifetime, and I see you as a wonderful pinnacle to strive towards to this day.
I miss you Mom and love you more every day. Until we meet again......
