Some things never DIE! You are one of them!

The sky lit up the other day, the thunder roared.
The smell in the air of fresh summer rain, take it in.

8 years ago today, YOU lit up the sky!
YOU made the thunder roar!
Taken too soon, you sure let it be known.

You came into this life as a daughter, a sister a friend.
When you left us, you left as that and so much more.

For you had become a Wife, a Mother and a Grandmother.
Although your heart beats no more, the fire in your soul still burns.

You are the Angel on my shoulder, the tiny devil in my head.
You speak to me in my dreams, even if no words are ever said.

Some things never die, and you are one of them. Through our memories you will live on.

As with mine and so many others, you've touched.
In your strength and perseverance I found comfort.
My hero, my legend my Mother and friend.

Although hero's can be forgotten, certainly not in your case, it's the legends that never die!

8 years ago today, my MOTHER past away. I've posted a few blogs, videos and comments in her honor. I believe remembering should happen each and everyday. Unconsciously you are running through my mind. I don't need a specific day to toast to your memory, but some days are just harder then others.

It really did rain the other day! Two Saturdays to be exact. With that the sky really did light up bright. Just the same as the night we were robbed of you.

I know I've been posting a lot of videos lately, both home made and off youtube, but sometimes music is the best way to release and get out all it is in your mind, body and soul to which you feel.
You were never hidden in any one's shadow, and everyone knew your name. You are my hero and my strength, the wind beneath my wings!!

Thank you, Thank you, Thank God for you, without you I'd be nothing!





LOVE YOU MOM!!!!!! KEEP ON ROCKING ON, I KNOW YOU ARE!!



UPDATED: My sweet neighbor A brought these to me today, to cheer me up. Thank you, aren't they beautiful?

I have lost most of my family, and all in the space of ten weeks. They are never really gone from us. Memories live on in our hearts and stories that they told forever.
Big Hug!

This is absolutely beautiful. It's obvious that you adored your mother beyond words, and I'm so sorry that she was taken away from you. At the same time, it sounds like she touched your life in an amazing way, and that you will never forget her.

Stay strong today!

Such a touching, touching post, Lisa Anne. I am totally crying as I am typing this note. The Bette Midler songs gets me absolutely every time. (Remember Beaches?)

I can't imagine having to go through a experience like you have. Your strength and dedication to family is amazing.

You honor your mom so well, Lisa. What a beautiful and moving tribute. I'm sure wherever she is, your mom is very proud of you and can see how much you treasured here. And thanks so much for sharing that video, I haven't heard that song in such a long time. And it still moves me to tears! **HUGS**

I LOVE that song.

~~Mel~~ said...

I'm very sorry for your loss...I know you're mom is proud that you remember her in such a loving way each year and even on a daily basis I'm sure.

I found your blog via '3 boys and a little lady'...and I have to say we quite a bit in common (I took a quick peek around)...I too have a boyfriend...and a "the boy"....my boy is 8 years old.

I'll definitely be adding you to my reading list.
