A loss of a mother should only make you stronger...
I only say that to try and convince my self to move on, and I say it every day. My mother has died from Cancer on 11/11/11. A day I can not forget.
As all other mothers, she is sweet, caring and a great mother. Sometimes I ask, why? Sometimes I look around and all I see are people, that are living now, but one day, are dead. What is life? What is our existence? How can I go on?
And again, the that should make me stronger. I should only make her happier and more proud. I must do good for her sake, in Islam, when your intentions of doing good deeds are true, and when you remember your mother when you are doing them, she also benefits from your good deeds in the life after.
Life after...? now that is another topic...
God bless you all, bless my Mother and all your Mothers. Be strong, stay strong, do all the good deeds you can for your mother, make her proud. Make her happy, although she is dead, she feels us, hears us and loves us.
