It's been a year today. A year since you journeyed to heaven to join our Savior. While my heart rejoices you are in such glory, it's been forever broken in missing you. I never gave thought to how hard life would be when I no longer had you at hand. I forgot to factor the enormity of your impact in my life.
The one I could always turn to when life seemed more difficult than I could handle.
The one I could be silly with and share my oddball sense of humor.
The one to always offer comforting support coupled with gentle wisdom to give my soul ease.
A woman who listened with her heart and listened well.
A guide who blazed the trail in my journey to become a woman after God's purpose.
A friend with whom I could chat, big or small and everything in between had been encompassed in our conversations.
A kindred soul with whom even spending time together doing nothing brought a sense of peace.
So, I miss you mum, more than I ever dreamed I could miss anyone! And I find myself grateful that I do miss you this much. For I know there are many in this world for whom no such loss occurs. They never had the gift I was given in you! I was blessed with a treasure in you and I thank my heavenly Father for His generosity!
Looking forward to the day when I join you again.
