A Letter to Mom On Her Birthday

Dear Mommy:
Happy Birthday in heaven. You would have been 89 years old today here on earth.

I miss you every day, but I feel you with me at all times.  I know for a fact that you are looking at us from above, and always guiding me and Rudy.

I know that you were with my brother the whole month he was in the hospital fighting this terrible virus that is killing so many people in the world. We are praying for all those families that have lost loved ones.

I was scared and I felt helpless because we couldn't see him.
My only comfort was that I knew you were there guarding him.  I know he was your favorite. LOL
Today we are so grateful that he is home recovering.

 You taught me so many things, except how to live without you - but I am learning - it is just so hard at times, and I wish you were here.

Tomorrow, we are celebrating Mother's Day - I celebrate you every day, it doesn't have to be Mother's Day.  I feel blessed that I had you as my MOTHER.  I am the person that I am today because of your strength, your guidance and your love.

Your sacrifices did not go unnoticed.  I might not have understood them at the time, but it all makes sense to me now and I thank you.

In a couple of days (May 12th) it will mark 7 years since you left to go to heaven.  I miss you more than ever, but I remember what I promised you.  You were always worry about my health - you made me promise that I will take care of myself - well, I am keeping my promise and I am keeping myself as healthy as possible.

I will keep on going forward just like I know you would want me to. Don't worry about my aunt - we are taking care of her.  I just wish she would be able to have some peace in her mind and in her heart.  Can you send a little help?? 

Well, I don't want to say good-bye, but I must for now.   There are still things that I must do.  I hope I am making you proud from up above.  I love you, happy birthday, and until we meet again.

Your daughter,
Patti
