HAPPY BIRTHDAY MUM!!!

Hei mum, 

Today, you would have been 59... You wouldn't have still reached retirement age, but you took an early retirement from this world. You did your job, yes... A great job in leaving the world better than you met it. 
That's my mum
You may have been gone for a while, but for me, it still feels like yesterday, 'cause your memory lingers on in the very depths of my soul. I still remember your birthday and all the other dates which were significant to your life here, I still hold dear. I know you are happy in God's arms... So I cherish and and honour your days. I bless your memory, because you are a part of my story.
The legacy continues 'cause you taught and raised me well. I love you... I always have and always will. Happy birthday mama! 

That's me and my mum... A long while back
I've got so much to tell you... So many questions to ask and so many issues to discuss with you. Well... Yes, I should have said "would have loved to"... To say I miss you is an understatement... When you left (without a sign or any notice... without saying goodbye) I was lost, I thought I was doomed... I thought I was better-off dead; but God found me, He lifted me up, and He favored me... He has been there for me all these years. He heard all the prayers you made for me... Yes He did. 

I will continually love and cherish your memory.... With love from me to you always. Just touching base to let you know that your little girl is all grown up and running things by God's grace (I can see you laughing now). My brothers are doing well too, and you have 4 grandchildren already. Funny how time flies. It can only get better.

Miss you loads mama... You are always in my heart... ALWAYS.

I leave you with my latest signature (chuckles and winks), Peace... I'm out!

  15. Priscy,
    I can't put into words what I felt when I read your post. What a lovely lady. Your words themselves tell everyone now she lived out her life and what a lovely legacy she has left behind her.
    May God bless you and all her family as you think about her.
    Always remember the good things in life
    don't dwell on the things that are sad
    for life is a diary of memories
    some good .....some bad
    but just remember there's purpose in all
    whether joyful or peppered with pain
    and 'though storm clouds for now
    may have darkened your skies
    soon the sun will break through once again
    So just rest in the thought
    that God cares for us all
    holding each of us in His great hand
    as He guides us and comforts us
    both great and small
    'til we all reach that promised land
