Because you loved me

Even though my mother passed away six years ago she lives eternally in my thoughts. She is my mentor who is guiding me to become a more complete human being.

There are moments when I vividly recall things my mother said that I was dismissive of when I was a younger woman. I now understand she was sowing seeds in my mind giving me directions to find self-belief when I was ready to find it.

Along with Oprah she believed in showing gratitude and she always found good in people even when they betrayed her.

During my life I have taken too many things for granted.  Like other bloggers I wish to correct past wrongs and start publicly sharing the things I am grateful for.

My mum loved me unconditionally and truly believed in my potential to become a decent and valuable human being.

For this I am eternally grateful.

lyrics by Celine Dion

Because You Loved Me”

For all those times you stood by me
For all the truth that you made me see
For all the joy you brought to my life
For all the wrong that you made right
For every dream you made come true
For all the love I found in you
I’ll be forever thankful baby
You’re the one who held me up
Never let me fall
You’re the one who saw me through it all
……………
You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faith ‘coz you believed
I’m everything I am
Because you loved me

………

I’m everything I am
Because you loved me
