God Saw You

Today is day I didn't think I'd be doing for at least another 30 years.
But God had other plans.
We may not undertand them, it may not seem fair, but we have to believe you're in a better place now mom.
I love you. Always and forever.
Em
God Saw You
God saw you getting tired
and a cure was not to be
so he put his arms around you
and whispered,
“Come to Me”
With tearful eyes we watched you
and saw you pass away
and although we love you dearly
we could not make you stay.
A Golden heart stopped beating
hard working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us
he only takes the best

I am so sorry honey! You look just like your mom and she will continue to be with you in your heart and through who you are as a woman. I'm sorry that she was taken so early in life, but she is now in a wonderful place. If you need anything, I am here to talk. Sending you hugs and prayers!

He definitely does pick the best. It is so hard to say goodbye but at least we know we will one day be together again. Sending you much love and prayers my friend.

I've told you already, but I wanted to say again how sorry I am that you're going through this. I've been thinking about you a lot lately and I hope you and your family are getting through everything OK.

You look a lot like your mom, and Jamie looks like you, so she will definitely live on through him in many ways.

What a beautiful tribute to your mama. You two really had a special relationship and I am so glad you have so many precious memories (and pictures!).

I think it is really special that you said goodbye to her on All Saint's day. You know, given what a fabulous woman she was.

Oh sweetie, I am so so sad for you. This was the first post that I had read about your mom's passing. I know how hard this time is for you... My dad passed away when I was 19, and I can't believe I have already lived 10 years without him. I know you will have some difficult months ahead, so I will keep you in my prayers.

Kristen said...

Your mother was a beautiful woman and it's obvious from your pictures just how much she cared about you. My heart breaks for your loss and this post definitely made me call up my own mom and tell her just how much I love her. Every day matters.
My thoughts and prayers Emily.
