Happy Mother's Day


Happy Mother's Day everyone! This is the first Mother's Day since I lost my Mom. I miss her so much... I found this poem and I think it really says how my heart feels today. I have no idea who wrote it. This Mother's Day card was one I made for my mom a few years ago and she told me it was one of her favorites so I am reposting it for her today. Keep smiling down on me Mom. I need it...

If Roses grow in Heaven,
Please pick a bunch for me.
Place them in my Mother's arms
and tell her they're from me.
Tell her that I love her and miss her,
and when she turns to smile,
place a kiss upon her cheek
and hold her for a while.
Because remembering her is easy,
I do it every day,
but there's an ache within my heart
that will never go away.
