A Bittersweet Mother’s Day

Sharing is caring!


Mother’s Day is bittersweet this year.  I am blessed and fortunate to have my own mother alive and healthy on this earth.  But we are all aching for one new mom who can’t be with us here on earth.  But I know that she is looking down on her children and guiding us to help them grow up without her.  They will know that their mother was a beautiful, intelligent, kind, and generous person who loves them very much.  Even if they only knew each other a few days.

I’ve been going through old videos of her and her family and each time it hurts my heart a little.  But at the same time I am so happy to hear her voice, still clear as day in my head.

Tomorrow we will lay her body to rest in the earth.  Something about it is so final.  Even though her spirit is in Heaven, her body has been in the mortuary, still being able to be seen.  Once that casket is placed in the ground and buried with six feet of dirt, we won’t see it again until the Holy Resurrection.  But then it will be perfect.

Alice’s body failed her here on earth.  But her spirit is perfect and lives on in another realm.  She will watch over us all and guide the unborn souls to our family.  And she will visit my brother and give him peace.  And some day they will be together again.

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you mothers living and deceased.
