Mother’s Day Reflection

Not a day goes by that I don’t pray for and think of my mom, Gena. She would tell me everyday how much she loved me and how proud she was of me. She passed away February 18, 2017 and I remember it so vividly. She had fought cancer, chronic pain & multiple health complications for over 15 years. For so long, it was so hard. Not many people saw or experienced everything she went through other than my dad and close family/friends. The beauty in her long fight for life was her beautiful spirit. I’m not sure I’ve ever met such a positive person as her even through the immense amount of constant pain she was in. Why did God have this long fight for her? I’m not sure but I can speak with peace that she has a straight pass to Heaven and I pray everyday that she may be there. I just got a lump in my throat writing that last sentence. I miss you and love you very much mom. Something that nobody knows is when I pass your resting place just off the freeway I always turn my music off briefly, think and pray. I love where you rest because I get to pass it very often. Covid, has made it difficult to be with you but I know your spirit lives in me. As I sit and reflect with this blog post, I remember you but I also hope that your spirit inspires and moves others to think, act, pray, smile and love. You fought so hard for life. You prayed and prayed. And you love harder than anyone could. Whenever, I fall, struggle or face a challenge I know you are there. One of the most beautiful things you gave me is certainty. I have no doubt your love for me. There was no one you loved more than me. I was and always will be your shining light. You would say, “God only gave me one child but He gave me the best!” This Mother’s Day, I first pray for my mom, my grandma Carrie and my grandma Doris. Three amazing Mother’s that have shaped me into the man I am today. I pray for all the Mother’s that have passed away and their loved ones, that those on Earth May feel their love. I pray for you and your Mother that you may feel each other’s love. A Mother’s love is one of the greatest blessings in this world and I’m incredibly grateful. Love, Freddie “1,2,3.. I love you!”
