Holly Ridge Happenings

A Mother Just Like You
I wonder what the world would be like if all children had a mother just like you. One who gave so much of herself, putting her child’s needs before her own. What a nice thought, a world full of happiness wished upon them just like you have given me. When I was young everything seemed so perfect. You’d kiss my scraped up knees making things better once again. And when you’d hold me close I’d smile because your arms felt so safe. You use to tell me God blessed you so many years ago when he placed me in your arms.
Well when I was young I believed that I’d look up to Heaven thanking Him for creating you and for showing me a love so true. There’s a bond we share like no other and when I look back on years past, I could understand why you have become my best friend because not a day has gone by that you weren’t there to support me making me see I could do anything. I could reach for the stars making all my dreams come true, and if by chance I failed you’d be there to help me start over. I’ve told you this so many times yet I could never tell you enough with all my heart I love you. You’re a woman of incredible strength and with each new day you amaze me.

If I had but one with, it would have to be, for all the children to have a MOTHER JUST LIKE YOU.

Here on Tuesday for a visit was Doyle Hughes from Delhi. He always come by when making his trip up to the cemetery. Always good to see them.
