Missing my Mom

This is my second Mother’s Day without my Mom and there is still rarely a day when I don’t think about her and miss her. Yesterday I attended a Pembina Trails Voices’ concert. Some words from the song Wanting Memories by Ysaye Barnwell resonated with me. 

mom holding newborn 1953I thought that you were gone, but now I know you’re with me.
You are the voice that whispers all I need to hear

me and mom 1954I know that I am blessed,
again, and again, and again, and again,
and, again.
