March 16th was the two year anniversary of my mum's death. I can't believe it's already been two years!! I continue to miss her every day, and there are times I almost feel... guilty for going on. This may sound silly if you've never experienced this kind of loss. It's like, you feel like every day you live you should some how be honoring their memory.
I'm in a season of transition in my life. Any time I feel down about it (I HATE transition) I try to think about how these changes would in some ways make my mum so happy. My mother ALWAYS fretted about money. Not just for herself, but for her children. Hopefully God will be showing me the perfect job He has for me that will work well with my family soon, and the additional finances would make my mum happy. I try to think about that - hoping that would be honoring to her in some way.
I also feel that my mother's gift of love and affection has been passed on to my own family, and in that way too, her memory is honored.
Well, without further ado - below is the eulogy that my sister Kerry wrote for my mother's funeral. It was so well done that I feel it's the best thing to post each year at this time.
Thank you God for the gift of my mum. And mum, I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!
