Love lives on

Today would make eleven years that my mum passed away. ...gone too soon.
Throughout my childhood years, her disciplinary admonishments were quite scary sometimes, and I always thought that her words would drift away into the past as I grew older, but needless to say, not a day goes by that I don't hear her words cautioning me in day to day living, especially where decisions need to be made.
Did I not say to myself I would not become like my mother?  Of course I did!!
However, I am truly thankful that I was raised by a good and kind and honest hard working woman who instilled the same virtues in me.  I live by these same values that she moulded in me from an early age.
Thank you Mum.  You are gone but not forgotten, and even though we are now apart, your spirit lives forever within my heart.

 Love Lives On
Those we love remain with us
for love itself lives on
and cherished memories never fade
because a loved one's gone.
Those we love can never be
more than a thought apart,
for as long as there is memory,
they'll live on in the heart.

  1. What a beautiful thought. My niece and I were talking about my Mum (and her Grandmother) an hour or so ago and the quotation is very apt for me too.
