Your Mother is Always With You

  Since Mother’s Day is upon us, I thought of some special advice to honor mothers everywhere, and in particular my mother. I miss her every day – her love for me, her laughter and her sense of humor. Here is a poem I found and the author is unknown.  It is touching and meaningful. Your mother is always with you…she’s the whisper of the leaves as you walk down the street; she is the smell of beach in your fresh laundered socks; she’s the cool hand on your brow when you’re not well.

Mother’s Day Tribute of Encouragement and Humor

Mother’s Day is rapidly approaching and one thing I miss about my mother was her gift of encouragement. After my mother died I have said many times that a mother is the last person who will defend you regardless of your circumstances. I have jokingly said if I called her and told her that I had murdered someone her response would be, “Well, Honey, I am sure you had a good reason. Would you like to go to lunch?” My mother was very funny, too. Enjoy this Mother’s Day Tribute story about my mother’s sense of humor and her encouragement from Continue Reading
