First I would like to take a moment today to wish all the Mother's out there a very happy Mother's Day!!  I would like to send out a very special "Thanks" to my own mother.  Thank you for always being there for me.  Thank you for standing by me and supporting me through the thick and thin.  I feel so blessed to have such a strong woman like you in my life.  You are not just my mother, but a best friend, a confidant, a soul mate, and a role model.  I hope today is extra special for you!

Secondly, I would like to share a little poem I found with the mothers who are missing out on celebrating with their children.  I know today is a hard day for many many women, myself included.  So without further adieu...

A Mother’s Day Wish From Heaven

Dear Mr. Hallmark,

I am writing to you from heaven, and though it must appear
A rather strange idea, I see everything from here.
I just popped in to visit, your stores to find a card
A card of love for my mother, as this day for her is hard.

There must be some mistake I thought, every card you could imagine
Except I could not find a card, from a child who lives in heaven.
She is still a mother too, no matter where I reside
I had to leave, she understands, but oh the tears she’s cried.

I thought that if I wrote you, that you would come to know
that though I live in heaven now, I still love my mother so.
She talks with me, and dreams with me; we still share laughter too,
Memories our way of speaking now, would you see what you could do?

My mother carries me in her heart, her tears she hides from sight.
She writes poems to honor me, sometimes far into the night.
She plants flowers in my garden, there my living memory dwells
She writes to other grieving parents, trying to ease their pain as well.

So you see Mr. Hallmark, though I no longer live on earth
I must find a way, to remind her of her wondrous worth.
She needs to be honored, and remembered too
Just as the children of earth will do.

Thank you Mr. Hallmark, I know you’ll do your best
I have done all I can do; to you I’ll leave the rest.
Find a way to tell her, how much she means to me
Until I can do it for myself, when she joins me in eternity.
