I miss my Mother so very much....... If roses grow in heaven, Lord, please pick a bunch for me and place them in my Mother's arms and tell her they're from me. Tell her, I love her and I miss her, and when she turns to smile, place a kiss upon her cheek and hold her for awhile. Remembering her is easy, I do it every day, but there's an ache within my heart that will never go away. ❤
