Simply the best: Mom

So, yesterday marked an entire year without my Mom. Quite hard to believe! A sweet friend of our family, from church, sent this via my Dad. Such precious words that somehow bring comfort.

God saw her getting tired and a cure was not to be.
So He put His arms around her and whispered "come to me."
With tearful eyes we watched her, and saw her pass away.
Although we loved her dearly, we could not make her stay.
A golden heart stopped beating, hardworking hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best
