For you...

For the love you brought and gave so selflessly and utterly unconditionally, the joy, faith and happiness that you surrounded everyone with, your infectious laughter and warm smile, your radiant beauty, the way you lit up any room when you walked in, and the honour and pride of knowing you and having had you in my life, I remember your life with the deepest love and warmest memories, and thank the Lord for your birth, and amazing life you shared with us.

A Mother's Love

A Mother's love is something
that no one can explain,
It is made of deep devotion
and of sacrifice and pain,
It is endless and unselfish
and enduring come what may
For nothing can destroy it
or take that love away . . .
It is patient and forgiving
when all others are forsaking,
And it never fails or falters
even though the heart is breaking . . .
It believes beyond believing
when the world around condemns,
And it glows with all the beauty
of the rarest, brightest gems . . .
It is far beyond defining,
it defies all explanation,
And it still remains a secret
like the mysteries of creation . . .
A many splendored miracle
man cannot understand
And another wondrous evidence
of God's tender guiding hand.

Today, like every other day, I am thankful for having known  and being blessed with the the most incredible, beautiful woman that I would ever know in my life. The immeasurable kindness and happiness you blessed us with,  and for believing in us and that no dream is too big, is most certainly a 'Mother's Faith'.
