There Is A Place

There is a place in this world, where a sheltered embrace protects You,Agnes_Cerkas

Where you are made to feel like the most important person on earth.

When you are ill, you are made well and when you are happy you are taught to share,

Your questions are listened to and answered, your needs are placed before and first.

Hard work before play becomes a habit and gratitude for everything and everyone is the way,

To live a life of Love, to seek peace and harmony with others, to offer a lending hand in care.

I’ve lived this life as it was taught to me and I am Loved in this world because I was taught to Love,

My memories will always be those of peace, beauty, caring and Love… because of Her.

“Yes, there is a place in this world where that sheltered embrace nurtures, loves and protects me,”

And I am honored to share these thoughts with you, because a mother’s love made me free.

There is a Place…  In My Heart

I Love You Mom.


In memory of Agnes Cerkas; my mom, my teacher, my inspiration to live and to Love.

Your Love has forever filled my soul and in witness I am a grateful man.

  1. I lost my mom and year ago. She taught me how to love by being loving and I appreciate this loving tribute to your mom.


    • I’m very sorry to learn of your loss… Yet, I say we must CELEBRATE their lives and most assuredly, their spirits and souls in eternity! This certainty provides me (and I hope you) solace and confidence that this (present) life is but a precursor to the “Real Thing.”

      My mom was 92 when she passed in September of 2011… In my mind, I smile whenever I recall one of her most memorable phrases as she became increasingly “mature”; it was “In my wildest dreams, I never thought I’d live this long.”

      I never truly understood how much I learned from her about love until I was well into my “pentagon” years (just do the math, ok?, lol)… She had a knack for revealing tremendous insight into life, people and right & wrong, just by sharing her thoughts about everyday life, in an innocent, unabashed way. I can only hope I become as wise and gentle as her in my lifetime.

      Be well.
