Wish you Were here....

Wish You Were Here.....
I wanted to tell you how closely I've kept
The memories of you in my heart
And all of the lifetimes that we've had to share
Live even though we're apart
But don't cry for me'
Cause I'm finally free
To run with the angels
On streets made of goldTo listen to stories of saints new and old
To worship our Maker
That's where I'll be
When you finally find me
No don't you be weary cause waiting for you
Are wonders that you've never known
Just hold on to Jesus, reach out for
His hands
And one day they'll welcome you home
And that's when you'll be
Finally free
Finally free
I wish you were here
I wish you were here
And all of the dreams that you treasure
Will soon come together
And that's when your sorrow will find tomorrow
And you will rise again
I wish you were here
I wish you were here
I wish you were here

As I write this, I find it so hard to believe that my Mom has been gone for 1 year....In some ways it seems just like yesterday and in others like a lifetime ago. To say that I miss her, well that would be an understatement. She was not only MY Mom, she was one of the BEST moms ever! Even though I am SO sad that my Mom did not have more time here on earth with me(us)(especially my boys), I feel so blessed knowing that she is heaven! It would be selfish of me to wish that she could be here, when she was in so much pain and now she is free.....I am so thankful for the 34 3/4 years I was able to spend with my Mom!
Happy 1 year in heaven Mom & Grammy!
We all miss you so much and will see you again someday....

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
Isaiah 40:13

You are so sweet, Jen! I wish she could be here for you too! I'm sure you will make sure your boys will know how much she loved them and how she can't wait to see them one day!
