The beauty of a woman

IMG_1407

According to Audrey –

The beauty of a woman’s is not in clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows and the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years – Audrey Hepburn.

Did you say commando ??

A Tribute to my Beautiful Mother

On the 20th of February, 2016, I lost the most important person in my life – my Mommy.  She was everything to me, and I honestly feel like a part of my soul died when she did.  Mommy was the strongest, by far the best human being I know, and she fought a good momfight – until she just couldn’t fight anymore.  She passed away exactly one day after her 50th wedding anniversary which makes me think Daddy couldn’t live without her in heaven anymore.  What an AMAZING love story theirs was!  It’s his turn to have her now, and I don’t want to be angry that they are both gone, but truth be told, I am…still….just a little. I’m sad.  I’m lost, but I get some joy in knowing that they are together again.  Daddy was the love of Mommy’s life, and now I have not just one angel but two.

My mother was my guardian, my advisor, my provider, my roommate, my cheerleader, my best friend … my heart!  This is my love letter to my Mommy, Yvonne Hamilton:

Because of you Mommy, I was never alone.  You left me way too soon and never before has anything hurt this much.  Not a moment passes that you are not in my thoughts and in my heart.  I feel you in everything – our home, the sun, the flowers, the cool breeze, and I see you in each of my siblings – your children.

I tried to make a list of the things I wanted to thank you for, but it was impossible – there were just too many.  The most obvious was your deep, never-ending love for us. How you comforted and guided us, and did everything you could to protect us.  You never gave up on us or yourself, and made keeping us together and happy your mission after Daddy died.  Being a single mother isn’t easy but you did it so well.  Thank you!

Mommy, you were loved by so many, it honestly blows my mind; but at the same time, it is no surprise.  You were selfless and your home was always open to everyone.  Your hospitality and home-cooked meals made people feel loved and special.  The effort and love you put into every dinner, brunch, birthday party and spontaneous “little lyme” were impressive, authentic and uniquely “you”.  I’m happy and forever grateful that you passed this passion on to me.   You were the most compassionate, understanding, family-oriented woman and one of the most beautiful souls one could ever meet!  You always left an impression and people looked up to you.   You gave graciously and generously, expecting nothing in return.  I watched you do this over and over for years and sometimes it made me mad, but that’s just who you were.

It will take some time for me to understand why this happened, but it makes me happy to know that you’re no longer in pain and you’re reunited with Daddy.  We had so many plans and dreams, Mommy…. you and I… now left hanging because they were ours to do and achieve together.   I know you worry about me – your wash belly baby, but I promise you I’ll be okay.  I’ll make you proud by using all the tools you gave me to thrive in the world.  I know you will always be with me – on my wedding day, when I have my babies, or just when I’m having a bad day and want to feel your presence. I miss you beyond words Mommy.  You took half of my heart with you!   As I’ve said, I’m not sure how to move forward without you or even how to start.  I’ll think about you every single day….you gave me my first breath and I cuddled with you as you took your last.  Free from pain, you are now dancing with the angels in Heaven.  Love you always, forever and a day!
