Small Haiku-Indescribable Meaning

I was reading one of my favorite new blogs and she had a contest posted. You could win a thousand dollars and all you had to do was write a haiku about your mom. This seemed simple at first, but when I started to try to summarize my mom in just 3 short lines, I realized just how hard it was. There are so many things I could say; good and bad. I'm sure you could too!

I started thinking of all the times that she sacrificed for us and encouraged us. Then I thought of all the stupid arguments we had when were trying to survive my teenage years.

My heart just felt a twinge of pain because I realized that we never made it out of my teenage years. I had just turned 19 when she was taken from us in a car accident. I never got to say, "You really weren't that stupid after all."

Can you do me a favor? If you can, let your mom know how much you appreciate her. She is a special gift from God, that no other human can replace. You never know when she might be taken from you.

Gone-You left a hole
That I thought could never be filled.
Thanks be to God; He Can.

This is SO true! A mom is a special gift from God that no other human can replace and we should cherish our moms. I know I do! I don't know how you manage some days not having your mom. You were so young when you lost yours. Please know that I am always here for you if you need anyone to talk to when you are missing your mom and need to reach out to someone. I love you girl!
