After Losing a Child – Missing my girl

Missing my girl today (You know how it is… something happens and I think, “Oh, I’ve got to tell Laurie that” but when I pick up the phone I remember…
and then I was sorting some old pictures of my Mom’s and came across a couple of emails from several years ago.  I don’t know how they got there, but they were like a message from Heaven.  Here’s part of one…
….But now I’ll stop and take a moment to wish you Happy Mother’s Day! Since I’m in poetry mode – a couple poems By Joanna Fuchs to express my love for you!
Without You
Mom, without you, there would be no me.
Your love, your attention, your guidance,
have made me who I am.
Without you, I would be lost,
wandering aimlessly,
without direction or purpose.
You showed me the way
to serve, to accomplish, to persevere.
Without you, there would be an empty space
I could never fill, no matter how I tried.
Instead, because of you,
I have joy, contentment, satisfaction, and peace.
Thank you, mom.
I have always loved you
and I always will.
I Learned From You
I learned about love from you,
Watching your caring ways.
I learned about joy from you
In fun-filled yesterdays.
From you I learned forgiving
Of faults both big and small.
I learned what I know about living
From you, as you gave life your all.
The example you set is still with me
I’d never want any other.
I’m thankful for all that you taught me,
And I’m blessed to call you “Mother.”
I Love You!
Until then…
