Last Wish

Today is the 25-year anniversary of my mother’s passing.  She was a very lively and vibrant 69-year-old woman who gave her entire life to her children and grandchildren.  I miss her every single day.

Now at 61, it’s even more clear to me just how very short and precious life can be.  My thoughts turn to my own children – my 2 beautiful and beloved daughters who can only begin to understand the immense love that I have for them. 

Being their mother gave my life purpose and joy that without them I would never have known.  Even as I carried them I knew they would change my life forever but I did not know of the unspeakable love they would bring into my life.

Watching them grow into the beautiful, strong women and mothers that they are has filled my heart in ways that I did not believe was possible.  To see my precious grandchildren happy and so full of life and love is a joy I could never have dreamt of.  My heart had to grow to hold all the love they give!

If today were to be my last, there would be no regrets, just a heart full of gratitude for an incredible life and one last wish that my family know that because of them I have had a truly wonderful life!

Best Thing That Ever Happened to Me - Gladys Knight 
I've had my share of life's ups and downs
But fate's been kind, the downs have been few
I guess you could say that I've been lucky
Well, I guess you could say that it's all because of you

If anyone should ever write my life story
For whatever reason there might be
You'll be there between each line of pain and glory
Because you're the best thing that ever happened to me
You're the best thing that ever happened to me

Oh, there have been times when times were hard
But always somehow, I made it, I made it through
Because for every moment that I've spent hurting
There was a moment that I spent, just loving you.
