Happy Mother’s Day!

As I think of “Mother’s Day” I think of my own mother and even though she is not with me in an earthly sense a part of her is still in my life. And as a tribute to the memory of my mother Sarah Crider and to Mothers everywhere, I chose this short by telling poem.

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 who
rejoice with us in our sunshine,
desert us when troubles thicken
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.

By ~Washington Irving

I am so thankful that I am a mother…nothing has been more beautiful or challenging in my life. With that…I would like to share a little poem that I wrote about my lovely daughter. Her name is Terra and a mother has never been more blessed than I. Enjoy.

The Sweetest Thing

Being a mother is the sweetest thing that has ever happened to me.
I cannot imagine being is this world without my daughter…you see…
She is my pride and joy, she is beautiful both inside and out.
My heart is filled with joy when she is around doubt.
Her smile has a way of just making my day.
I can hardly wait to hear her say,
“Hello mother, just thought you might want to know
I never get tired of saying I love you so.”
Oh, how my heart fills with glee….
another of the sweetest things has just happened to me.

Time for a – TIME OUT!

At some point in each of our lives, something will happen that will truly rock our world. Over the past few weeks, I have had one of these life changing situations happen to me. On October 8th. my mother, Sarah A.Crider, who had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s passed away at my home in Florida. Mother was 87 years old and willingly and knowingly left on her great adventure.

One of the first things I learned growing up, was that “people are more important than things.” I believe that dealing with real life issues and having a healthy closure is important to our good health and future happiness. Taking a “time out” is free and the perfect life tool that can help us heal and deal with our losses. It works for all types of loss whether it be through divorce, a job, friendship or the loss of a loved one through death. We each have our own way of coping with things that threaten our comfort, health or well being, but a “Time Out” is the one thing that can help us put it all into the proper perspective, allowing us to move through the pain and disappointments that are a part of life.

Today, I am taking a “Time Out” – to take this opportunity to share with you and to honor my mother…

Sarah A, Crider with a quote by Kate Douglas Wiggin.

“Most of all the other beautiful things in life come by twos and threes, by dozens and hundreds. Plenty of roses, stars, sunsets, rainbows, brothers and sisters, aunts and cousins, comrades and friends – but only one mother in the whole world.”
