This photo is on my wedding day. My smiles says it all. I love my mother. She is now forever in my heart. I miss her laughter and her smile. I miss most of all, hearing her voice and everything in the world being OK. It made it all OK to hear her voice. Now I must listen more keenly, for her voice is in my mind and heart. I must listen now.
Here is a link to a beautiful portrait I wrote about her when she was alive. She was magic. My magic mama.

“The palm on your fevered brow, the soft kisses when you need them most, the grip that steadies you on rocky roads, the hand that feeds and nurtures you, the voice that tells you that you are loved, the shadow that walks beside you unconditional and enduring, a mothers love.”
– Sunita Sharma
“But behind all your stories is always your mother’s story, because hers is where yours begins.”
― Mitch Albom, For One More Day
A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.
