Have you ever had the wind take your breath away?
My Maria's Maria
Mommy, where are you?
Mommy, my heart where are you, when I need you most?!
No other person has ever been quite as close, as you and I.
Every since we first lay eye to eye.
We have been the dynamic duo ever since.
We truly light up face book.
You were not just Mommy, you were my heart, my confidante, my ace, my ride or die.
You referred to yourself as the queen and that you were Mommy.
Royalty you were in every sense of the word.
Your outer beauty always radiated and you were much more beautiful inside.
The comparison of your beauty only pales in my attempt to verbalize that inner light and glow you always had.
Mommy, I will miss your singing, your voice, your wisdom, your sense of humor, your unconditional love for everyone. Mommy you stood in the gap for so many. You have countless orphans in need of you.
I feel blessed to have received the best of you.
I remember our last conversation as you told me I was just like you.
It was as if you knew something I did not know.
I refutable disagreed, and explained why, I was not.
You smiled and said, You are your mother’s daughter.
I have embedded in my mind, spirit, and heart the memory of you.
I watch as my daughter grows up and recall the parallel of you two.
You were right, once you leave the throne, the little queen in training will take over.
Mom, I think you understood Maria in a way that, I am learning to see her.
Thanks for being my ear, my voice, my advocate, my cheerleading, all that Moms should be.
I am thankful for all the things and experiences we got to be and see.
I am thankful for you teaching me the world was at my feet.
There are so many lessons, wisdom, and knowledge I hope to teach my children.
Thanks, Mom if only I am half the Mom you were I will be ok.
Love you Sherry Maria Stuckey.
