Reflections – Our Moms

May 14, 2018

When you want to pick up the phone just to call

But then you realize you can’t

Mother’s Day was sort of surreal for both of us

Within four months, both of our Mom’s died

In the midst of so many deaths in our community

Additionally, the loss of dear friends

Mother’s Day was difficult for us

Now, my sweet partner in faith and life makes a journey

Her first trip back home since her Mom’s death

My body will be in Colorado

My heart and my spirit will be with her

Jeanne and Shirley, you are loved and missed

You touched both of our lives in so many ways

You have both helped to make us who we are today

As we miss our Mothers, we worry about our Fathers

Lord, walk with each of us we pray

As we wander through the Valley of the Shadows

Guide us with the light of your loving presence

As you promise

Blessed are those who mourn

For they shall be comforted

Lord, in your mercy, hear this prayer

Dona Nobis Pacem

Grant Us Peace
