SPECIAL TRIBUTE TO MY MOM...

Hello Sisters!  Today is a day filled with mixed emotions for me.  I lost my Mom 4 years ago today.  My Mom was a very special woman who was strong enough to raise 4 children pretty much on her own and I hope that she is looking down at all of us today and is feeling proud of what her children have become.  I try my best to walk in her footsteps and teach my children what is right and wrong, and how to always treat people with respect, kindness, and to be very thankful for all the things that we have been blessed with in our lives.  It's not always easy, but I hope that my teachings (they probably think it's more like nagging) will someday help them grow into kind and respectful adults.  Okay, I'm getting a little bit too emotional here...

On a happier note, I am sooooo glad that my Mom is pain free and is living it up in Heaven!  Purple was her favorite color so here are some pictures that I am sending to her...



I LOVE AND MISS YOU MOMMY....

Thank you everyone for letting me share this special story with you and thank you for being my friends!

Hi Kyoko, I'm sorry that I wasn't online to comment on the day you posted this beautiful tribute to your mom. I know that your mom is up in heaven watching over you and is very proud of who you are because of the great influence she had on you. It's only been 7 months since my mom passed and there's not one day that goes by that I cry because I miss her so much. I know you miss your mom too. Thank you for sharing this with all of us. xoxo
