Just to let her know everything turned out OK
This post has been awarded 15 stars by 3 readers.

I would truly love to have just one more chance to thank my mother for all the hard work she did in raising me. Mother always worked tirelessly for us to have a loving home and never complained. She and my father tried to instill in us the values of doing good for no other reason than it would make the world a better place.

I know many of the decisions on my life style I made disappointed her greatly but she accepted me and tried not to lecture me on how to improve. As I became an adult, we settled into an unspoken pact wherein I would never lie to her and she would never ask a question where the answer would hurt her.

Somehow, I did mature, at least slightly, and the moral lessons that she stressed became a code for my life. I wish she could come back for one visit just to see how her hard work paid off and to see her great grand children. Mom I know you worried about me and how I would turn out just as I do with my children. I want you to know you are still loved and remembered by all of us, I miss you mom, every day.
