Have you told your mother how much you love her and appreciate all she's done for you?
Please do so while you still can.
A Newborn's Conversation with God
A baby asked God, They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow, but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?
God said, Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you.
The child further inquired, But tell me, here in heaven I dont have to do anything but sing and smile to be happy.
God said, Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you. And you will feel your angels love and be very happy.
Again the small child asked, And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me if I dont know the language?
God said, Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to speak.
And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?
God said, Your angel will place your hands together and will teach you how to pray.
Who will protect me?
God said, Your angel will defend you even if it means risking its life.
But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore.
God said, Your angel will always talk to you about Me and will teach you the way to come back to Me, even though I will always be next to you.
At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from Earth could be heard and the child hurriedly asked, God, if I am to leave now, please tell me my angels name.
God said, You will simply call her, Mom.

Awesome.....thanks for the read.
Nice stuff....as with a ton of other FReepers, I miss my Mom who left us just over two years ago, and will have a ton of extra thoughts and memories today.
I am sorry for your loss. Your Mom probably wants you to have a great day. Remember the funny things, the happy things, just the loving memories. God Bless.
