For over 50 years my mother was my angel on earth and now she is the angel in my heart. I often talk to her in my mind and every time we get through a rough time or something especially good happens, my family says ... "Mopsy (my mother's nick name) is watching over us". We all feel like she is still with us, watching our every move, giving the love she always gave ... she is our blessing.
My mother is not just our angel ... her whole life was angelic. She was a nurse, a lover of nature and of life. She was talented in so many ways and she used her talents to make others happy. Every year my parents put out their own Christmas card. My father would get the idea (most often related to current events) and my mother would illustrate it. She became know for "Mopsy's Angel" who starred in many of her cards.
In these, many of you were around when we landed a man on the moon. And, as for the earth being screwed ... that was in the 1980's. They saw into the future in a way we all wished would never happened.
Each card had special meaning and everyone we knew looked forward to what they would come up with next. Christmas is a time when I remember how much of an angel I was blessed with in my mother ... and in my father, not so angelic, but still wonderful in every way. If you still have your parents you are blessed, if not, like me, live and love with your memories ...
I have one more angel to share with you. This one was not planned, but last Thursday our little Maggie passed away and has crossed the Rainbow Bridge to be with her brother Micky. It was a sad day for us, but we have loved every day of the twenty years she spent in our home and now she will live on in our hearts.
