    Today is a hard day!

    Today marks the 8th anniversary of my mother's death. I held her hand and watched as she took her last breath. It was a hard day. It still hurts. I know she is in a better place but I often wonder if I was such a good daughter to her. I guess I will never be able to ask her, not that I was a bad daughter.

    I had another cardinal at the bird feeder this week, so I like to think that was Mom visiting me.

    Sorry Monique. We are coming up on the anniversary of Daddy's passing. No time is a good time but this time of year ? It stinks. Hugs to you. I am sure you were a daughter she was proud of. Feed those cardinals.

      I'm sure you were a good daughter to your Mom, Monique. But I guess we all wonder that when the day is over. My Mom has been gone since 2005 and it still feels like yesterday. I think losing our Moms is the hardest thing we have to do in this life. I know for myself, I just never imagined I'd be on this earth without her. {{{{HUGS}}}} to you today Monique.

      And yes....I do believe that cardinal at your feeder was a little visit from your Mom.

        Oh Monique and Blondie, that must be hard this time of year. My heartfelt thoughts and hugs for you coming your way. I still have both my parents but they are almost 80 so I know that time is coming. Take time to enjoy the wonderful memories you have.

          Those anniversaries are tough.... I lost my Mom 15 years ago, this coming May... I still miss her.

          I am so sorry you have lost your mom.... Mms are so special in our lives...

          January 8th, will be the two year anniversary of my husband's death... We were married 46 years... Dreading that day..

            I totally agree on loosing your mothers. Mine has been gone 10 years and I still miss her like crazy. Especially, during the holidays. Hugs to everyone.

              My thoughts and prayers are with you, Monique. It's even more difficult this time of the year. I lost my Mom 10 years ago and my Dad on leap year day 2008. I'm the only surviving member of my ancestors so I really feel like an orphan at times. They say it gets easier with time, but at times I wonder about that.

                {{{{Hugs}}}} to you Monique and Blondie too. I know how hard these days can be. It's coming up on 35 years since we lost my dad and it's been 37 years since mom is gone and it is still difficult for me on those dates. I was still quite young when they left us

                  It has been said that time heals all wounds. I don't agree. The wounds remain. Time - the mind, protecting its sanity - covers them with some scar tissue and the pain lessens, but it is never gone.

                      That Red Cardinal was around as a sweet reminder of your Mom and it thanks you for the delicious bird feed.
                      With so many family members gone it makes this Holiday Season a bittersweet Remembrance time.

                          I feel your pain, Monique. Mom's been gone for 20 years next May. The pain is less sharp over the years, but it never goes away. (((HUGS))) to you.

                            Sending comforting hugs to Monique and our other forum friends who are hurting. Thinking of you all.

                              Yes this says ot all, I couldn't agree more. Losing our Moms is the hardest, saddest thing. I know you were a good daughter to her! Sometimes we beat purselves up on this for no good reason, I suppose technically we all could have been better daughters at times just like our Moms could have neen better mothers at times too. But overall most people do the best they can most of the time. Now go talk to that pretty red bird.
