Your days are short here;
this is the last of your springs.
And now in the serenity and quiet of this lovely place,
touch the depths of truth,
feel the hem of Heaven.
You will go away with old, good friends.
And don’t forget when you leave why you came.
In loving memory of my mother
Bertha Garcia Carter
January 12, 1930 – September 13, 2013
The best gift she left her three daughters were her loving and close friends.
Thank you for sharing your special gifts with those near you.

Thank you so much for sharing this with your readers. Would you believe it was blue skies and fair clouds?
I dont even know you, but I know the loss of a mother and its one of the hardest of Life – but the best reminders of who she was/is will constantly shine through you every single day….in the way you comb your hair, tie your shoes – maybe even the way you dance, or laugh, or the twinkle in your eye. Mothers are the greatest gift – they always say that Children are….but as a child, there is no greater gift than our Mother.
Sincerest condolences to you and your family during this time of loss….
Hi Tiffany, Your kind note that you left on this post truly touched my heart and really helped me during a difficult time. I shared it with my sister, and she also appreciated your kindness. I am grateful for your kindness and friendship to a total stranger. Thank you for being so special. Emily
Touching words and lovely image. I will hold you and your mother in my heart. Bless you both. ♥

May you find comfort in celebrating her life…
Indeed, my mother really made a difference in her life and had a number of close friends. We were surrounded by them and reminded of the legacy she left behind. Thank you so much.
I am very sorry for your loss Emily
I can’t thank you enough for your condolences. It means the world to me to have you as a friend.
Thank you Emily, although we have never met we can still be good friends
My condolences. A very heartfelt post.
Thank you so much Mike. It makes me happy that this post touched your spirit.
Is that a IR shot?
HI Black, Actually – no. It was taken mid-day in hot sun with blue skies and white clouds. This was edited in Silver Efex Pro for this effect.
She is forever in everything around you. Everything within you. Everything you are. Her love did not end, just the vessel that held it. Now her love is everywhere.
You’re absolutely right – she helped to create a learning center in Costa Rica that is still operational today. Her hard work will always survive in helping others. Thank you so much for such kind words. Hugs, Emily
So sorry for your loss, but I know you helped to make her last days peaceful. My thoughts are with you.
Words cannot express, I know. Thinking of you, Emily.
Just knowing that you are there and care means the world to me Robert. Thank you so much for your friendship.
Beautiful Tribute to Your Mother:) Thinking of you and sending good thoughts.
Thank you so much Renee, and your caring helped to support me through this difficult time.
As always, a beautiful post and image… So much love to you, now. I’m sorry I’ve been out of touch — I miss the space, and you — but I send you so many prayers and much light right now.
It’s so wonderful to hear from you. I’ll try to call you on Wednesday before I leave sunny FLA. Memorial is tomorrow, so a busy day. Hugs! Em
