Today is six years
since my beautiful,
took her last breath on earth
opened her eyes in heaven.
I miss her daily…
I still look to her life for examples
how to lead my life.
Some I do okay
but in many areas
I fall woefully short.
My mom was patient,
a neat freak (sorry mom – I’ll never measure up),
couldn’t stand dirty dishes in the sink.
She also loved her family fiercely,
never put a thing on the table that my daddy wouldn’t eat (unless he was at work, then all bets were off),
and lived her life for her husband and her girls – putting herself last in line
She had an awesome sense of humor
a temper that was easily poked,
and a need to control her surroundings.
Some things I do get from her…
Most importantly, she accepted us for who we were
and loved us equally despite our inability
to live up to the standards she set for herself.
Sometimes six years feels like a lifetime
and other days –
it seems like yesterday.
If I can only be
half the woman that she was,
I will consider myself a success…
I love you mom,
I will see you again,
of that I am sure.
XO Lisa Mae 💔❤️🩹❤️
