I just wanted to place this poem I found on my blog as my beloved mam passed away on Saturday after a short illness. I shall miss her everyday of my life it is my mam on my profile picture with me I spent everyday with her for the last 3 years of her life so I am feeling quite lost at the moment.

What is a Mum?
A mum is one of life's best gifts, Someone to treasure all life through, She's caring and loving, Thoughtful and true, Someone who is always a special part of your life, Someone who holds a prime place in your heart, She's a mentor, a confident and also a friend, Someone on whose love you can depend. A mum always has your best interests at heart, She's someone so dear and so good, She's a blessing, she's a gift, She's a treasure like no other, She's someone that is truly wonderful. Wherever you go, and whatever you do, A mum’s love will always see you through, A mum is truly invaluable, Indispensable and unforgettable. I wouldn't want anyone but you, And that's why I'm so grateful, that life picked you for me.

Beautiful poem, Carolann! I was with my mom everyday for the last 2 years of her life. It's been 4 years now without her. I'm so grateful I had her as long as I did! The pic of your mom radiates love and kindness! Very sad loss, but how wonderful that she is yours! Sending you big hugs filled with sympathy from the heart! XOXO

I am so sorry to hear the news of your mum. Mums are certainly one of a kind and losing them is hard. I was on vacation or I'd have seen this sooner and responded sooner. Hoping loving memories you've forgotten pop up to keep her near to you.
