I MISS MY MOM....

In my Sunday routine I just picked up the phone to call her...
And then I realized she isn't there any longer.

"There are no good-byes, where ever you'll be, you'll be in my heart."
– Ghandi

When somebody you love dies,
you never quite get over it.
You just slowly learn how to go on without them,
by always keeping them tucked safely in your heart.
We're cherishing all precious memories ...
We are so lucky to have them!

At the rising of the sun and it's going down,
we remember you.
At the blowing of the wind and the chill of the winter
we remember you.
At the opening of the buds and in the rebirth of spring

we remember you.
At the blueness of the skies and in the warmth of summer

we remember you.
At the rustling of the leaves and in the beauty of autumn

we remember you.
At the beginning of the year and when it ends

we remember you.
When we are weary and in need of strength

we remember you.
When we are lost and sick of heart

we remember you.
When we have decisions to make that are difficult to take

we remember you.
When we have achievements that are based on yours

we remember you.
As long as we live, you will live, for you are now part of us

as we remember you.

AWWWWWW OLGA! NONE CAN ESCAPE DEATH AND YOU ARE SO RIGHT, WE, THE LIVING HAVE TO LEARN HOW TO CONTINUE TO LIVE WITHOUT THE LOVED ONES WHO PRECEDE US. I FIND IT STRANGE, THOUGH, THAT AROUND THE HOLIDAYS SEEMS TO BE WHEN WE LOSE THEM. MY DAD DECEMBER 8, FRANK NOVEMBER 19, MY GRANDMA DECEMBER AND ON AND ON. SOME DAY WE WILL BE WITH THEM AGAIN. THIS IS A WONDERFUL TRIBUTE AND I BET SHE IS SMILING DOWN. XO
