Remembering Mom
As I walk through the journey of life, I remember.
I remember how you helped me to grow with love, truth, and honesty.
I remember how you helped me to choose the right path with values, morals, and self worth.
I remember how you gave me dreams with hope and confidence.
As I remember, I pray to be a mother like you, to shape my children into strong adults, full of hopes and dreams.You made me who I am today, and I will always remember you in life’s passings for no one could touch my life as you have.
Remembrance in life’s passings is the truest form of love one can give, for a memory should never die and a love should live forever in the heart of another!!!
