|Remembering Mama, Mothers Day 2011|
My Mom's name was/is Ardythe Ruby Beardsley Clark and she died quietly in her sleep two decades ago at the far too soon age of 79...my Mother was a lovely human being...everyone said so, friends, coworkers and family respected and admired her and felt warmed and assured by her quiet manner, her balanced good judgement, her smile, her trustworthiness, her hospitality and her genuine style.
At her grave, the marker is inscribed with "A Beautiful Person In Every Way"...she was.
Thank you dear Mama for being the authentic and loving you.
|Happy Mothers Day, 2011|
¨My thoughts on this day in May are for all those women who won’t have a happy day because they have no one to wish them a “Happy Mothers’ Day.”
They may not have been physically able to conceive, or by circumstance are unable to adopt a child. Then there are those women who chose not to have children; a choice that is rightfully theirs to make, but the reality is the same, they cannot hear their child wishing them a “Happy Mothers’ Day.”
Then there are those mothers who have lost their children to disease, an accident of fate, or attack of violence. Memories are all that remain to them.
Then there are those who have lost a child to that horror of recent times, bullying that resulted in suicide.
My heart goes out to all those mums who, through no fault of their own, no longer have a living child. It must be extremely painful...¨ please read it all, HERE
