Rememberance A Mothers Story

   Mother always tried to make precious moments through out our lives.
     Where if someone needed a smile, or just to say wow.
        We could remember the poclein precious moments we shared with family and, friends, and that is how this began.
          As she slept I knew she was fighting for her life.
     With her armor already on she prepared for battle.
        Mother, can you hear me as I read to you, fighting along side of you?
          Mother, can you hear her singing to you fighting along side?
             Mother, can you feel her touch as she tries to be the strongest because she is your first born still fighting along side of you silently.
   Honey, daddy says as he he stay up watching you, fighting along side of you as you slept fighting for your life.
                 Mother, could you feel the silent prayers from your family and friends fighting along side of you.
                             The battle is over!
   Now she is awake, but the war still goes on.
     Still, not completely with us, mother continues to fight infections, pain medication and much more to get back to us. 
                               Now she is back!
         Fully recovered from her surgery, and this is what she had to say.
    "My life was not in my hands". Mother said.
    I could feel my body spliting into two and it was nothing I could do.
      I was screaming for my loved ones with no avail.
        They could not hear my voice, or so it seemed.
          I was dead, alone, wishing for one more moment with them.
            Just to let them know how much I loved them.
     I knew I was in the valley of the shadow of death, fighting for my life because I knew how hard my family was fighting along side me.
      Thinking back on that war, I can not do anything else but lift my hands up because...
                                   I won. We won.
         Even though I do not know what lies ahead of me, I will lift my voice to the lord and give him thanks because I was dead and now I am alive.
            With all his love to share with others.
                                                                                      Dedicated to my mother
                                                                                          with all our love
