My mom passed away 26 years ago. I wrote this with the hopes that she will get it in heaven.
Dear Mom, I know that I can’t put a stamp on this and send it to you through the mail. I thought I would write and hope that God will pass this on to you. I want you to know that I have recieved the messages that you have sent since you went to heaven. Some days I may be to busy with life not to notice that you have stopped by to visit. I know that even though you are not here in physical form, you do stop by now & then through your spirit. I loved the hearts you sent in the snow a few weeks ago. That was really special.
I’m sorry that I wasted so many years with being angry at you. When you passed away I was only 23. I have matured so much since then. I am no longer angry and I hope that you will forgive me for the way I treated you when you were alive. Now that I am older I can look back and know that I was too young to appreciate you and all that you had done for me. I still have the letter that you started to write to me before you passed away. Even though you didn’t get the chance to finish it I hold on to it and cherish it.
I wish that you could have lived long enough to meet your Grandchildren. I’ve had four boys! I know that you are taking care of Jason in heaven. It gives me so much comfort knowing that he is with you. What’s it like in heaven? Is Jason still a baby or has he grown over the years? Daniel was born less than two years after you passed. I know that you would be so proud of him. He’s very independent and quite handsome. He’s so much like me in both looks and personality. Tyler is still my baby even though he’s twenty now. Remember how you always called me your baby? That use to really irritate me. Now, I understand why you always called me your baby even though I was grown. Tyler turned out to be a combination of both me and his Dad. He is still a baby and struggling to grow up. He’s in college and doing quite well with that. I went on to have a fourth son, Zack. He’s going to be 15 this May. I placed him for adoption. I really wish that you would have been around when I was going through that. I know that you would have given me advice and helped me through the mental and physical turmoil during that phase of my life. I think that’s about the time in my life when I really started to realize how much I missed you and needed you. Zack is with with a good family and I think I made the right choice.
