Memories of my beloved mother

Updated on August 26, 2011

Memories of my beloved Mother

My mother was a perfect embodiment of love, a precious gift from God & was loved & treasured by her five children. She returned to God on the 27th of April this year & though we know she is safe with God, we miss her very much & grieve her loss.

Mother possessed a strong personality & bravely faced the storms of life. Despite any circumstances, she was always cheerful & giving, totally committed & dedicated to us. Her love for us was very special & unconditional & she made every effort to keep us happy & protected & constantly endeavored to give us the best -nothing short of the best. We spent happy & fun-filled days with her. There were times of disappointment, desperation, heartbreak,times when she felt let down, but she continued to teach us the values of life with courage & determination & her prayers & faith paid off.

When we were kids, she spent quality time with us.Despite her busy schedule she read to us Bible stories & stories with a moral. She had a story to narrate for every incident. She played with us, joked with us & cooked the best food we could ever have eaten. She was truly a perfect mother & wife, a great homemaker. We enjoyed every moment with her. She was our Best Friend & now we live with her memories & remember all the good values she instilled in us. Her love kindness hospitality & cheerful disposition made her a favourite among all her relatives friends & neighbours.

At the age of 88 mother left for her heavenly abode. By God's grace she was not bedridden or sick.Unfortunately her kidneys failed & she was unable to recover. On admission to the hospital we were informed of her critical condition. In spite of that she put up a bold front. Her blood pressure was dropping & she developed multi organ failure. She was put on life support & though she was conscious she was heavily sedated. The doctors had given up hope for her survival & we were storming Heaven for a miracle. But God had His plan & He needed her up there in Heaven.

We gathered around our beloved mother's hospital bed in the EICU & talked to her about how much she meant to us. We whispered to her our deep appreciation for the unconditional love & moral support she had always given us. We prayed with her & sang to her the songs she sang to us when we were kids. We expressed our thanks & sincere gratitude. She seemed so peaceful & calm. It was a precious bonding experience for us & we tearfully watched her fade away as her heart beat turned to zero.

We miss our mother so much but we know that she passed on peacefully & painlessly to be with God. We said goodbye to our dearest precious mother who meant the world to us.

      My mother was the most selfless person I have ever known. She grew up in hard times, and went through hard times in her marriage. She sacrificed very much so we could have our education. Thankfully, when we grew up we were able to make her life happy and easy. She had a good life for many years before she died, thank God. I try to model myself on her characteristics of kindness and unstinting love.

      Mothers are God's gifts to us. We will all miss our mothers, but we can honor them by being good mothers to our children.

      I'm so sorry for your lost. Your mother is such a wonderful woman, since you have nothing but praise for her. "Many shall rise and call her blessed"...seems like she did very well. You're lucky to have known such love.

      I, too, lost my mother through kidney failure, bought about my diabetes. I can tell you I miss her very much and sometimes, more than others. They're such gifts from heaven. Thanks for sharing.

      You are so lucky to have had your mother for so long. She sounds like a wonderful, loving, and caring mother. Not all of us are this lucky. What a great way to remember her.
