To my mom in Heaven -- Happy Mother's Day!

Updated on May 15, 2012

Today was my mom's first Mother's day in Heaven.

Happy Mother's day to my mom. Today is her 1st Mother's Day in Heaven. Prior to her sudden death on March 30th, she had regularly talked about missing her own "mama". I was a very young child when her mama died, but I remember thinking my mom was never going to be able to stop crying. She loved and missed her so much. How I wish I could ask her today how she was able to move on after her mama died and become such an amazing mother and grandmother. Even though she missed her mom every day, she had such joy and love to share.

On her 80th birthday a few weeks before she entered eternity, my mom was excited to show us that she had a birthday card in her purse that her mama had given her many, many years ago!

Today, despite the strangeness in not having her to call or visit -- I am sure that my mom is having a wonderful celebration with her mom, and in the presence of the King of Kings!

Happy Mother's Day mom .... can't wait to see you again!

This song is a wonderful reminder what my mom anticipated before she died, and what we all can anticipate!

      You are welcome Tami Fite. After my mom passed away I felt impressions of her being in a store she liked to visit (Shopko), but she was gone. She loved to go shopping for clothes, and she loved to look around in stores like Shopko, J.C. Pennys, and others. Its hard when she's not there anymore. Bless you, too!

      My mom cried a lot when her mother died, too. It was so sad. My grandma died in 1968 at age 67. It was very hard on mom, but she made it through. She died in 1998. Its sad when moms pass away and they're not there anymore. Moms in Heaven is where Moms belong, so that they can be with their moms. Nice hub! The photos and video are very nice.

      AMAZING!!! If only we could pull down a veil that is covering the Heavens and take a peek into their existence right now -- I suppose we must learn to lean on our faith -- but oh how I miss her! Thanks for chatting! It has been a blessing!

      That's amazing, because my mother had a beautiful operatic voice!

      Don't you find yourself imagining what it must be like for them carlabehr? I see my mom sitting at a magnificent piano playing with the angels and loving the little babies that we have never met. So strange, not knowing, and yet we don't remember being in the womb before birth. So many mysteries we have yet to learn. Bless you!

      Beautiful tribute to your Mom, Tami. I know that she is smiling down on you every day. She helped to create you, and raised you to be the awesome woman and Mom that are today. You look a lot like her. God Bless you.

      Tami, I hope you were surrounded with love on mother's day. My mother spent this first year in heaven with my sister and daddy. I can't think of a happier way for her to spend her day than with the love of her life and her youngest daughter, whom she hasn't seen for six years. I feel her love with me everyday. It may sound crazy, but I can't not feel happy for her. She knows how much I miss her and will love her always.

      What a beautiful reflection of a mother's love. Yes, I am sure she is celebrating today with her mother. You will carry on what she has taught you and it will also make you a strong woman. Thanks for sharing such a sweet part of your life.
