Dear Mom,

There isn't a day that goes by that I do not think of you or miss you. I wish you were here with me so I could come to you with questions about my own kids. I know God has a plan but he took you to soon from us and for that my Kids will never meet their "Grandma Carleen". I pray that you are watching over me everyday, I have noticed I have picked up some of your parenting habits(both good and bad).

Holidays are just not the same anymore--Not having you here to buy a gift for or to celebrate is very hard for me to handle. Some holidays are harder then others but NONE are easy. Alexis is a wonderful child, from what I have heard she is very much like me, I know you would adore her! Ryan is a pistol all in his own world, nothing can slow him down. Alexis knows that you are in Heaven now and that you are God's Daughter, she very much wants to grow old so she can meet you (bless her heart).

I don't want to dwell on the things that can't be, I want to celebrate the life that you lived and the 3 beautiful children you birthed! I want to laugh about the good times we had, the moments that I will always remember, I want to pray that I will leave these memories in the minds of my children. I want to have hopes and dreams that I can see them through life even when they are grown. I have these hopes and dreams because of the mother you were. We did not always see eye to eye, we did not always get along but we always had that bond that you cannot break between a mother and a daughter! I will be eternally grateful for the years we did get to share and the many memories I will carry with me for the rest of the my life. I am Thankful that you are my Mother, My very own mother!!

  1. What a beautiful tribute to your Mom. (()) I'm sorry that you can't hear her speak to you but I am sure she does and I know she hears what you have to say through God. (())
