|Let the memory of Lula be with us forever|
"Happy birthday, Mother. I miss you more each day I go through finding more of the times I saw you go through. I try; but you were a stronger woman than I. Pain is not easy to deal with, especially when health care of quality is so difficult to find. However, I trust in the Father as you did for He is the only true healer.
The Lord gave me the best example in you. I hope I can do the same for mine. I love you more than words can say."
"I haven't forgotten that you brought me into this world on this day, It has been longer than it seems, or is it the opposite? I only know that I miss you every day. But I am thankful that you have not had to see some of the things that would have broken your heart.
I hope to make you proud, Mother, and I love you always."
""Mother, the missing you is still fresh even though it has been 13 years today. I have learned that time is so precious and we must enjoy every minute together to the best of our ability because tomorrow is never written in stone. I try to remember all the things you taught me, and I hope to be a positive influence on my children's lives as you were on mine. If I could be half the mother you were, I don't think I could complain. I love you and I thank God you were my mother.""
"Happy birthday, Mother. It seems I miss you more, not less, at least your physical presence. Every day I realize more how much I have to thank God for; you and your family, getting me through impossible times, my children, something to eat, shelter, and just experiencing life, being alive.
It helps seeing you in my dreams. I haven't forgotten anything about you. And I know I will see you again. I love you, Mother."
"Why do you think I miss you as much today as the day after I had to say goodbye until the day we will meet again? Do you think it is because I depended so much on you? I know I had a blessing in you and now that I'm having a lot more health problems than before, I realize what you must have went through. I thank God for you, Mother. I wish we could have spent this day together. But I think maybe we did; just in a different way. I love you. Happy Mother's Day."
"I can hardly believe it has been twelve years since you went away. How have I survived without you? Only by the grace of God. I miss you as much today as I did then. In many ways, my life ended on that Monday night as well for it will never be the same again. There is not a day goes by that I don't need you to talk to for you always listened. You understood me in ways that no other human being ever has. But a part of me knows that I will see you again and we will be together again.
You were indeed a very special lady, mother. I could never have dreamed the richness you brought into my life. And, now, dealing with my own mortality, it is even more real just how special you were. I love you."
"I know we were cheated of these past few years. But I also know all things can work toward good. You taught me that. So I will continue to celebrate your day and your life. Every day I realize how close I am getting to the end of my own. In the end, only love remains, and I will always love you and find comfort in your love for me. Happy birthday, Mother."
"This is always the day I miss you most if there is one day of the year, Mother. But you have left me many good memories of it and my Heavenly Father continues to carry me through. Happy Mother's Day! I love you!"
"Yesterday was so rough, Mother. It always has been since I lost you eleven years ago. But I am so thankful for the courage you gave me to try. So I battle all the enormous loss and my ever so waning health every day. Still, I feel your essence helping me through it all. So I choose to celebrate you being a part of my life. Always."
"Today is your special day and I choose to remember the special times we used to have and celebrate the fact that we had those experiences and memories together.
I am so thankful that you were my mother. I know how lucky I was. You always gave your best. I will always love and miss you. Happy birthday."
