Unending Love

This year has been a roller coaster of emotions-

My mom passed away on January 1st
It is still very raw

A new year of firsts
Mixed emotions have filled my heart
this year

The heavy sadness is with me
everyday-
Some days it is too much to carry
But I am blessed with my family-

I am blessed with so many cherished memories of my mom












She was truly my best friend-
as the holidays approach-
it is a time to reflect on all my blessings-
my heart is heavy -

We have also had a year
 filled with love and happiness 
as my oldest daughter 
got married-


Parties of celebrations were filled with family and friends-

My sisters and daughters have been my rocks throughout this year
and we all carried on with a strength from my mother's love for us-

We are strong women because of her-
more compassionate
more loving
more generous
more forgiving
more blessed-

 Thanksgiving will be our first holiday without her
It will be an emotional one-
but we will survive 
because of her-

We will laugh and cry 
telling stories
All the love she had for all of us-

we will always remember 
And keep that love alive
Because we are blessed

Take care, gotta fly-
Claire
