In Sweet Remembrance of My Beautiful Mom ~

The special bond of Mother and child is written with love on their hearts and souls and make them a part of each other forever.   ~ Author unknown
                             

Two years ago today, my beautiful mom, Elfriede Haf-Serafin, passed away . . . it's hard to believe it's been two years already . . . my heart still aches as if it were yesterday. We miss her here deeply, she was my best friend and there has been an empty space in my life. We continue to keep her memory alive each day . . . her love and legacy lives through me, her grandchild, great-grandchildren and all who knew her . . . we love you mom . . . Schalf gut . . . Schalf in Himmlischer Ruh . . . .


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If roses grow in Heaven, Lord, pick a bunch for me ~ Place them in my Mother's arms & tell her they're from me ~ Tell her that I love & miss her, & when she turns to smile ~ place a kiss upon her cheek & hold her for a while ~ Because remembering her is easy ~ I . . . do it everyday ~ There's an ache within my heart that will never go away.     ~ Author unknown

Its still hard for me after 14 years. Your right, it seems like it was yesterday. It does get easier but the hole in our hearts never mend.
Your mother was a very beautiful lady. I'm sure she is smiling and watching over you.

Thank you, Andrea . . . yes, how blessed I am.

Gini said...

Betty, I can imagine even at 14 years it's still very difficult . . . that hole will always be there. Thank you so much . . . mom was a very special person . . . mom's just are, aren't they! We sure miss them.

I can totally relate, Gini. I lost my mother and best friend two years ago too, on July 5. I love your remembrance of her. Best wishes.

Twenty years later, I can testify that the pain of losing your mother lessens, though it never goes away. What I've found that time gives too is the benefit of seeing your mother with some perspective. I always thought of my mother in relation to *me* and my pain; now that I've started investigating her family history, I'm beginning to see life through her eyes more. What a revelation!
