Hark the golden harps are ringing
Sounds unearthly fill the ear
Millions now in Heaven singing
Greet her joyful entrance there..
A Mother's love cannot be measured-
Just highly cherished and greatly treasured.

A Mother
is a special part
of all that's
to the heart.

Mama held my hand for awhile,
My heart forever...


One of God's Best...

For Lue

Look into those eyes,
What do you see?
I see paradise,
Looking back at me.

Look at those hands,
What do they touch?
They touch God's fingertips,
Whom she loves so much.

Look at that sweet mouth,
What do you hear?
Love for God and family,
Who she siill holds so dear.

Look at sweet Mama,
What do you see?
No less then an Angel,
One God loaned once to me.

Look upon her beauty,
Look upon her grace.
Such a kind and gentle spirit,
No one can take her place.

Look at her life's treasures,
Not gold and diamonds great.
But the love of friends and family.
And the blessing of a perfect mate.

Look upon God's wonders,
Then look seated by His side.
Amongst all his precious Angels,
That's where my Mama now resides.

~~~A MOTHER~~~

A Mother is Love, Hugs and Kisses.A Mother is a Teller of Bedtime Stories.A Mother is a Baker of Chocolate Cake and cookies. A Mother is a server of Breakfast,Lunch and Dinner. A Mother listens to her Children's Prayers at night. A Mother is a very Special Lady. A Mother is a Friend you can Always Count on. A Mother is Someone to Love and Someone that Loves you. No one can take A Mother's place.


I hear a voice you cannot hear,
Which says I must not stay
I see a hand you cannot see
which beckons me away.

Mother's Hugs From Heaven

When you feel a gentle breeze caress you when you sigh it's a hug sent from Heaven from a loving Mother way up high. If a soft and tender raindrop lands upon your nose.She's added a small kiss as fragile as a rose.If a song you hear fills you with a feeling of sweet love. It's a hug sent from Heaven from Mother up above. If you awaken in the morning to a bluebird chirping song it's music sent from Heaven to cheer you all day long. If tiny little snowflakes land upon your face it's a hug sent from Heaven trimmed with angel lace. So keep the joy in your heart if you're lonely my dear daughters. Hugs that are sent from Heaven a broken heart will mend.
