Thank you for everyone for your prayers and support during this difficult time. I am overwhelmed by the support and love from everyone. I could list names of people to thank, but I would be afraid that I would leave someone out. So again just a big thanks.

Here is a poem that I wrote for my mom at her funeral that I thought I would share with all of you.

A mother like no other

Lots of people say that they have a “great mother”
However we had a mother, “like no other”
A mother who loved with an open heart
A mother who sacrificed and worked hard for her children
A mother who laughed, danced and sang everyday
A mother who loved her grandchildren so much and proved it !
A mother who loved to garden and go on road trips to the beach every summer
A mother who fought for her children and made lots of sacrifices for them
A mother who’s spirit radiated and was felt by many
A mother who was often told that she was requested to be a “second mother” to all of our friends
A mother who had whip cream and food fights often and we have the pictures to prove it
A mother who loved endlessly,
A mother who cherished her grandchildren every day.
"A mother like no other" who will be missed greatly



I shall be returning to the blogging world shortly with some updates on how Wysdom and Blyss are doing. So stay tuned as I try to get back into blogging.
