Mornings with Mary

My post is dedicated to my cousin Rosemary, who died 
unexpectedly this past Thursday, March 21, 2013 
and to her family.

The verse below was written originally

 for a friend who suffered the death of a son.

Mary, Virgin Mary, Miriam,

Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God, 
Or, as she’s called by the faith of Islam, Maryam.
However you address her ,
her aid is nearby.
As has been said before,
and most likely will be again,
these times are hard.
So hard that even as adults, 
we seek our mother’s comforting touch.  
May our loving Mother
bring whatever is needed
for the peace of Christ
To dwell in your family’s hearts and home.

others who share love for 
our Blessed Mother

Dear Norma, I do hope you are feeling the love of this circle of carers. As you say no matter our age we all seek the comfort of mother and especially when one of our immediate family passes, my own mother died on 21 March a week after my youngest son was born, he is 34 now, I still miss her! x

Rosemary once told me that she knew she would go to heaven. Despite her assurance, I am praying for her soul. It bothers me that we don't know why she died. I know that I will have to let it go...
