Heart touching. I would love to sent this to a dear friend. Her mother joined Jesus just a few weeks ago.
Wonderful writing.

Lovely peice. Sometimes the coming is more than imagination. It was reminiscent of my mother coming to me in a dream. Their spirits do live on. : )

Dear Joyce, This was so very beautiful... I am having trouble writing because of the tears in my eyes. The love for your Mom came through every thought that spilled from your 'pen'. My heart goes out to you in your sorrow, but I feel your peace and even joy at the wonderful vision of your Mom rejoicing with Jesus! Love, Peggy

Only someone who loves to spend time with the Lord would be given such a gift. This was not your imagination....
Amazinginly written. You managed to share your grief with us all. This was powerful and poignant. I especially loved the scene when your mom blew the kiss and how you brought your hand to your lips. This was an almost tangible scene. Beautifully done. This one I will treasure. I recently lost a dear, dear aunt and the pain is so strong. I don't want to imagine what it's like to lose a mom. God bless you as you go through the healing process.

Well now everyone will know that I am guilty of not having read the posts for the "Mother" challenge. Sorry. I just haven't had the time. I don't have a clue how well written the "winning" posts are. All I do know right now is that this is top-rate in my book. "Highly commended" doesn't close to do it justice. Chills broke out all over me as I read. Hallelujah! I praise the Lord for your blessed visitation and the peace and healing it brought to you, my beautiful sister in Christ.
