Mom, I look at you and see a walking miracle. Your unfailing love without limit, your ability to soothe my every hurt, the way you are on duty, unselfishly, every hour, every day, makes me so grateful that I am yours, and you are mine. With open arms and open heart, with enduring patience and inner strength, you gave so much for me, sometimes at your expense. You are my teacher, my comforter, my encourager, appreciating all, forgiving all. Sometimes I took you for granted, Mom, but I don?t now, and I never will again. I know that everything I am today relates to you and your loving care. I gaze in wonder as I watch you being you? my miracle, my mother.

Have faith she is in a beautiful place and will be waiting for the time when she can be reunited with you all. Keep her spirit and legend alive in memories and thoughts and stories until then. Love and prayers, Suzanne.
