Nice portrayal not only of a mother's love, but of the fact that the people in our lives are temporary. Those of us lucky to have them at our most trying times are fortunate.

My mom was only 60, but the years she was on this earth helped guide me my whole life. She brought me closer to God also, though she also taught me to depend on God.
This is a lovely tribute to your mother and your Lord. Beautifully written.
I've learned that the more crisis or tragedies we endure, the stronger we become. Like your mom, and now like you! Great job on sharing your pain. Thank you.
Oh, what a touching tribute to your mom and her life, and a great message about the LORD and His love.

Those two scriptures you mention of powerful ones, and they grabbed you and penetrated your soul, just when you needed it most.

Our Mom's are special, and no matter their age at their passing, and no matter "our age" we miss them, and carry them in our hearts always.

Thanks for sharing this special story with us, and which was completely on topic.

God bless you abundantly~

This is such a beautiful tribute to your mom and your close relationship with her. I am so sorry you lost her when you felt you needed her most. You make a valid point that sometimes our refuge can be a person that we put above God. It could be a parent, our husband, or our children. This is an excellent word picture of what is more important. Nicely done.
I can relate to this way too much. I did the same thing with my mom. It's been 26 years since her death and I still miss her, but am learning to lean on God during good and bad times. Congratulations on ranking 1st in your level and 13th overall. Happy Dance!
Congrats on your win for this beautiful piece.
