You are my sunshine...my only sunshine ☀️
There's magic in a Mother's touch,
and sunshine in her smile.
There's love in everything she does
to make our lives worthwhile.
We can find both hope and courage
just by looking in her eyes.
Her laughter is a source of joy,
her words are warm and wise.
There is a kindness and compassion
to be found in her embrace,
and we see the light of heaven
shining from a Mother's face

Someone I never got to meet here on earth, but will look forward to the day I get to hug my cousin in heaven. I was fortunate to talk on the phone to Kathy . In one of the first conversations she told me she remembered when I was not brought home when I was born. She was only 6 years old and knew something was wrong. Her next words were " I prayed for you everyday since then that you would be ok!" Special cousin I will hug one day and say Thank you!
