The world is full of sons and daughters like me. I had a marvelous mother who loved me, sacrificed for me and helped me in every way possible. In all of my growing up, through college and eventually marriage, my mother was always at my side. And when I needed help with my little ones, she was there for me. Shortly after she passed away I found this poem in her desk drawer......

The Time Is Now

If you are going to love me
Love me now while I am still able to know
The sweet and tender feelings
Which from true affection flows.

Love me now while I am living
Do not wait until I am gone
And have it chiseled in marble
Sweet words on ice-cold stone

If you have tender thoughts of me
Please tell me now
If you wait until I am sleeping
There will be death between us
And I won't hear you then

So if you love me
Even a little bit
Let me know while I am living
So that I can treasure it

Now she is gone and I feel guilty...., because I never told her what she meant to me. Worse yet, I did not treat her as she deserved to be treated. I found time for everyone and everything but I never made time for her. It would have been easy to drop in for a cup of tea and a hug, but my friends came first. Would any of them have done for me what my mother did? I know the answer. When I called mom on the phone, I was always in a hurry. I feel ashamed when I think of the times I cut her off. I remember too, the times I could have included her but I didn't. Our children loved grandma from the times they were babies. They often turned to her for comfort and advice, she understood them. I realize now that I was too critical, too short-tempered, too stingy with praise. Grandma gave them unconditional love.

The world is filled with sons and daughters like me. I hope they see themselves in this message and profit from it. I have learned that we should always leave our beloved ones with loving words and deeds, because it might be the last time we see them.
