Mam 20/03/1932-13/06/2016

In memory of my dearest mother who passed quietly into glory just this week:

A mother’s love is infinite,
We blossom in its grace;
Embraced unconditionally,
We grow within its symmetry.
Mother’s love’s unlimited,
A bond begun at birth,
Follows through a lifetime,
Love that is sublime.

A mother’s love delights
In all that we achieve;
Love that cannot be erased,
Love that cannot be debased.
A mother’s love completes us,
Enriching our soul;
Enhances our living,
Wonderfully forgiving,
Love that makes us whole.

Beautiful calligraphy embellishes
The page it’s drawn upon;
Enhances immeasurably,
Radiates sincerity.
A mother’s love adorns
In a very similar way
Profoundly moulds us
With true selflessness.

The pain of loss is searing,
Love that cannot be replaced,
She held us in her arms
And leaned on us in age.
A mother’s love continues
Though heaven’s trumpet calls,
For mother’s love’s embedded
Within our hearts and souls.

God bless you Mam, love you always.
May God keep you safe until we meet again XXX

Missing Mam

Last Monday, we lost my darling Mam, age 84.  She had been ill and in a lot of pain with advanced spinal stenosis but we didn’t expect to lose her so quickly. We are all devastated and overcome with sadness and grief. God is gracious and kind and spared her prolonged pain, she passed quietly in her sleep and I’m grateful for that. The hole she left is massive but my family has been amazing in supporting us and spending time with my Dad ensuring he is not left alone.  It’s such a sad time, it comes over me in waves and yet I know she’s safe with her Saviour. It’s still hard though. Pray for us as we prepare to celebrate her life. I’m working on some poems to express my love for her and her love for us.  This is one my favourite pictures of my lovely Mam with my Dad, her husband for almost 63 years.
