I cannot believe that
it has been less than a year since Rhonda introduced me to Toni:
After just a few exchanges
of email, the wonderful,warm-hearted Toni became "Mom" to me. Since
then there have been many funny and joyous exchanges on ICQ, and some wonderful
We have found so many
We have the same sense
of humour, and can laugh at our mistakes together. (And, goodness, many
of those "bloopers" are even similar).
I am so proud and
honoured to call Toni "Mom"! and wish her the very best on Mother's Day...
Lots and Lots of LOVE
I met mom through cyggie,
I had heard so much
about this warm and funny lady, that in time she ended up on my ICQ list.
I don't remember whose
idea it was for her to be added to my list (was it yours or mine, cyggie??
LOL), but I have never regretted it!!
Mom, you are so full
of love, you should have been like the old lady in the shoe!! *G*
But now through the
computer, you are!! hehehe I can't wait for the day when I can actually
give you the biggest, warmest hug in me....for it is there waiting!
I love you TONS!!
I hope you have the most wonderful and God blesses Mother's Day ever!!!
I have shared much
joy in discussing the Lord with you...and had many a laugh with you also.
You have filled an
emptiness I didn't even know I had.
You are sunshine on
a dreary day and so full of life and love.
I am honored to be
called *daughter* by you...LARENE
this is your special day mom I would like to take this opportunity to thank
you for all you have done for me.
This goes far beyond the
bandaged knees, the late nights waiting up for me, the willing to share
in the excitement of my evening, and even the fact that you were always
patient while trying to teach me “domestic things”. *S*
This is about the values
of life and the gift of love that you gave so freely and unselfishly.
I remember bringing
home animals and practicing on them with your nurses kit and you just kept
smiling and shaking your head.
I remember a beautiful
pink fluffy dress you bought me which I exchanged at school for a standard
plaid dress so a friend would have a nice dress. See mom, you taught me
the most important things in life.
Always put God first
in your life, live by truth and through your heart, give unselfishly of
yourself, and treat others as you wish to be treated.
How do I thank you
for all of the above mom? I cannot, just know how I love you and
consider myself the luckiest lady in the world as you are my mother.*...RHONDA
is a loneliness that fills my heart on Mother's Day for you see, my own
mother passed away in 1977. There is no greater loss for a child than to
lose a parent......and even though I was in my early 20's, the pain was
more than I can ever put into words.
There is a void, an
empty space, a yearning that pulls at your heart.......no more mother-daughter
talks.......no more "mom, wait till you meet him, he's so cool" *S*, no
one to truly confide in as a daughter does her mother. The pain of such
a loss is something a daughter will truly never get over and even though
my mother will always be with me in my heart, the pain of her loss stays
What is a Mother?
She is the woman who
gives us life, she is the one who is there when we are hurting and helps
us realize that life does go on and we learn from our mistakes. She is
the one who guides us in all we do through life!
She is love!! There
is NO greater love than that of a daughter for her mother and that is why
I have chosen this moment to let one very SPECIAL person know how very
much she is loved.....by her daughter.
We may not be what
some would consider true mother and daughter but in MY heart and in MY
mind, Toni, you have filled that void in my heart.....in my life.
You have given me the
strength to learn to live again. You have always been here for me when
I am hurting........you have given me the ability to take life in stride......to
realize I am going to make it.......you have given me LOVE!
I know I haven't told
you just how very much you mean to me, but on this special day... a day
for me to hopefully let you know that I love you as a daughter loves her
mother.....I would like to wish you the happiest of Mother's Days........and
thank you for letting me into your heart!! I love you Mom.........and I
wish you the most BEAUTIFUL of Mother's Days!! *S*
All My Love,
Mother's Day!!!! Mom, this year has been wonderful having you as my mother.
Your love and warm heart shines though in everything you do. You extend
yourself to everyone and share your smiles. All of which, overflow unto
those you encounter. You have a true inner beauty which shines as bright
as the sun. My life has been richly enhanced with you. God has blessed
me so much. I thank God for you each and every day.
I hope that you have
a great Mother's Day. Wish I could be with you on your special day. However,
I am looking forward to many more years with you as my wonderful mother.
I love you mom!!!!!!!!..ANNETTE
