Somewhere Over The Rainbow – I’ll be seeing you

“May God give you…For every storm a rainbow, for every tear a smile, for every care a promise and a blessing in each trial. For every problem life sends, a faithful friend to share, for every sigh a sweet song and an answer for each prayer.” – Irish Blessing Quote

My Mother

In loving memory of my Mother- Jan 6th 1932-Dec 2nd 2001.

Another year has come and past. It is hard to believe that today marks five years that my mother has been gone. I admit that today I did not want to get out of bed, but staying in bed all day and crying will not bring her back. Sometimes I wish I could pick up the phone and call her, oh to just hear her voice, but heaven does not have a 1-800 number.

Today is a very difficult day emotionally, but it is also a day to be thankful for all that life has blessed me with. Today marks 18 years that my husband and I have been together. 18 years ago today it all began, so though I grieve my Mother’s absence, I’m thankful for my husband whose love and support has kept me living.

I believe that after every storm comes a rainbow and yesterday after the rain we witnessed that rainbow.

Somewhere over the rainbow your love still finds me. I miss you ‘Mom.’

“I’ll be seeing you in all the old familiar places
that this heart of mine embraces all day through.”
