In honour of your mama..

Your mother was a true princess in every sense of the word. She was patient and kind, and rejoiced in the truth. I do not remember a time when your mama spoke a cruel word or laughed at someone else’s expense. She was neither envious nor boastful and always more interested in others than in herself. In the whole of my life I have only met two people who so clearly thought things through before they spoke. Your mom endured all things, hoped all things and believed all things. With her strength and quiet, your mother touched many.

I recall your mothers clear eyes and her smile and it stills my soul. It is a gift that your mom has left with many and it is a quietude that you will always find tucked in beside your heart. Your mom is a genuine princess, an angel, and I know she looks down and cares for you from above. She is a rare creature of God. Call to her when you are in need, ask her to pray for you in times of sadness and of joy, close your eyes, find your stillness, she is there.

With much love xxxx L

  1. dear one,
    this is a beautiful and tender tribute to a forever mothering heart. may this collection of words serve to comfort, connect and endear the hearts of all who read it.
    forever and always.

  2. Lenora,
    I cannot imagine a more compassionate or heartfelt portrait of mother love. Words of comfort like these are raised to the level of prayer and they offer healing balm to hearts that grieve. Beautful tribute.

  3. You transported me back to my days with mum, the comfort you raised in these words sent me back into her loving care, she left me 33 years ago just as I gave birth to my son, now his wife is due to be a mum any day so this is very appropriate. Thank you so much. x
