Monday this week...

was 2 years ago since I lost my mother.
What can I say, my heart is still broken...

Today, driving my car, I was listening to this song by IL DIVO.
It is so beautiful, I just have to share it:

Mama thank you for who I am
Thank you for all the things I'm not
Forgive me for the words unsaid
For the times I forgot

Mama remember all my life
You showed me love, you sacrified
Think of those young and early days
How I've changed - along the way

And I know you belived
And I know you had dreams
And I'm sorry it took all this time to see
That I am where I am because of your truth
I miss you, I miss you

Mama forgive me the times you cried
Forgive me for not making right
All of the storms I may have caused
And I've been wrong, dry your eyes

Mama I hope this makes you smile
I hope you're happy with my life
At peace with every choice I made
How I've changed - along the way
And I know you believed in all my dreams
And I owe it all to you, Mama

- and yes, I miss you

Det var en nydelig sang - sitter her med tårer i øynene. I april er det to år siden jeg mistet min mor - og jeg tenker på henne hver eneste dag. Jeg savner henne så det gjør vondt, men samtidig kan jeg smile av alle de flotte minnene jeg har. For meg var hun den flotteste og klokeste kvinnen jeg noen gang har kjent.

What beautiful lyrics! I lost my mother decades ago and I can understand your grief. It gets easier, but certain days will probably always be difficult.
Celebrate the memories!

Randi, your post couldn't have come at a better time for me. I am so sorry that you are still grieving but I understand. There isn't a day that I don't think of my Father, who died 6 years ago May. Today I had a particularly bad day with my Mom and have had to bite my tongue a couple of times. I know I am blessed to be able to have her live here with us (a very understanding husband), but gosh darn it's hard some days. I think she is only waiting for this new grandbbaby to be born and then, who knows...ciao

Nydelig og rørende sang! Savnet etter dem man er glad i er tungt å kjenne på. Forstår at savnet etter moren din stort. Du ærer henne så flott gjennom bloggtittelen din. Samtidig må man ta med seg de gode minnene og være takknemlig. Mista selv pappa for 20 år siden på søndag. 1 april. Han ble nesten 40. Han døde på samme dato som sin far. Vi har mista mange altfor tidlig i min familie. Savner dem alle! Livet er ikke alltid rettferdig. Men, jeg har lært å nyte det mens jeg er her og ha det godt sammen med mine. Så, kanskje ungene mine takker meg en dag og.
