My darling Mother was the most amazing woman I know. She was a holocaust survivor; she endured the kind of pain and suffering that I cannot even imagine in my wildest of imaginations. She was the only survivor out of her entire family. And yet even after her heart was shattered to pieces, even after everything she loved was ripped out of her heart, even after she had nothing left to give – she still somehow found love in her heart and gave it unconditionally, never asking for anything in return.
I wasn’t always the greatest daughter and yet she never stopped loving me. I am so grateful that I got a chance to spend the last eight years of my mother’s life with her and got to know her and love her and take care of her.
Towards the end of her life when I asked how will I live without her, she said that her spirit will always be with me.
Well my darling mother I know that you are here with me protecting me and loving me and I am blessed.
Wishing all women an amazing blessed Mother’s Day!!!
Please come and share your Mother’s Day joy, love to hear from you.
