A Letter to my Mom

IMG_1434

Dear Mom,

I’m not sure I can truly tell you how blessed I am to call you my mom! You spent my whole life trying to be the best mom possible and you succeeded. You worked hard and gave the best you could as a single parent, especially raising a stubborn child like I was. I watched you work hard as I grew up. Through all my mistakes I made growing up and God knows there were LOTS of them, you still loved me and gave me all that you could.

I saw that after dad’s death, life got really hard for you and I truly felt helpless not being able to take that hardness away. Today I wish so much that I could wrap my arms around you and hold you and feel you hugging me back. I miss those hugs so much! Today marks one year since you changed your address to heaven but this I know, even though you’re not in my present, you’re for sure in my future. I look forward to one day seeing you again. For the present time, I know you’re not suffering, you’re not hurting, you have peace, and you’re living in the presence of our Lord and Savior.

I love you, mom, & miss you!!!!! – Your Son

On this day, one year ago at 7:30 am, I got a call from my mom that sucked all the air out of my life. My mom had for most of 2019, suffered from many different emotional attacks and no matter what we did, we couldn’t help her find her way out. My mom’s attempt to take her life that morning didn’t appear to have been successful and I used all the medical skills I could to save her life. We had no idea that when those ambulance doors closed and they left for the hospital, that we would never see her alive again. This event has forever affected me and my family but by the grace of God, we stand this day, knowing the truth about where my mom is and that we will all be together again in the future!

If today you find yourself lost and feeling like you can’t go on, you’re wrong. You can, you must, because God has a plan for you! Don’t give up, don’t give in.

  1. Love and miss her everyday. So many times I say … oh I have call Suz and tell her and then it hits me all over again.
    Love you my friend Janet

  2. I loved your mom as if she was mine too. I’ve got things around the house that she gave me for my trucks. I’ve actually named a truck i bought from Bro Butch, Lil Suzie. There’s days I cry because she left too soon, but Jimmy and God we’re ready for to come home. She’ll always be in Tina and my heart.
