Mama "Where Are You?"

"I'm right here!" My child when you are ready to come, "I'm right here?" I love and miss you so very much. I long to see your face, hear your voice, feel your touch and yes, smell your hair. I know you have been faced with some very difficult times and I just want you to know "I'm here" waiting. "Where are you?" We need to talk, we've got a lot to catch up on, so much time lost. Please don't wait until it's too late. I want to be able to hug you, kiss your sweet face and just hold your precious hand so you will know "I'm right here!"

Listen, my beautiful brown-eyed girl , when you are ready to come, "I'm here!" "Where are you?" I'm not far away and we should plan to see each other today, we have so much to say. "I'm right here!" "Where are you?" I've tried so hard to reach you, but so many times I felt unheard. I know its not your fault, you got caught in the middle. It's not fair to you or me but, it's ok!

"I'm right here!" and I've got so much to say. I've always loved you, wanted to be there for you, needed you just as much as you've needed me. I wanted to talk to you, I wanted to be your friend and be your Mama because I am your Mama and I'm here for you. "Where are you?"

I'll welcome you with open arms. Any time you want to come, call, or just drop a line or two in a letter, it's between me and you.

I want you to know before I go, my heart is broken to pieces but you can put a piece of it back, so don't wait, call today. I Love You. "I'm here," and don't let one more day go by without your Mama, "Where are You?"

Love Always, "I'm here."

Your Mama

P.S. The song, "My Wish" by Rascal Flats and "Broken" by Lindsey Haun are the songs to you from me, "I'm here" waiting. I Love You! "Where are you?"

Thanks to each of you for your cards, food, calls, concern and most of all prayers during Betty's stay in the hospital and since she has been home.

Betty and Carl Etheredge
