    Default Mommy


    If I could have a single wish,
    and never have another,
    it would be to have one single hour,
    and spend it with my Mother


    This is my Mommy's birthday, Sunday. She would have been 95 years old. She's been gone now for 6 years and sometimes I miss her so.
    Thanks for letting me share that. Thanks Sandy for showing that little verse. It is so appropriate.

    Aw Mary how hard it is when we lose our parents. It leaves such a hole in your heart. I saw this quote on Sandy's signature area today and bawled my eyes out. It was my mom's birthday on Wednesday -she would have been 82- and she just passed away on March 9 this year. I think special occasions are always harder. Try to think of the happy times you shared.

    Thankfully I still have my mother, but I know she feels this way about her mother, as do I. If I could just have one more hour to sit with her and chat and play cards and just laugh together again, it would be better than any lottery prize in the world.

    I read another quote recently that I really like: "The more I grow, the more I realize that my Mom is the best friend that I ever had". At 19, my Mom was (so I thought) a little overbearing and totally overprotective. At 29, I now realize she just loved me and wanted me to be safe and am so thankful to have her on my side and have developed such a friendship with her. And hopefully soon she will have a sewing machine and we can share a love of sewing. For once, I will be the teacher! lol

    Mary I can empathize with you.My mother died 15 yrs ago this June,it was the day after my birthday.I spent most of 9 mos with her before she died. I do wish I had a chance to really get to know her better as a woman while she was healthy,instead of having so much time with her while she was dying.

    I love that quote Sandy posted. Happy Birthday to your Mom, Mary.
    My Mom has been away for the past 11 years, I say 'away' because I know someday I will be hugging on her again. I miss her so very much. Not a day goes by that I don't talk to her.

    Mary, I think that is a beautiful sentiment. My mom has been gone for 24 years now and I still miss her. Sharing her memory is a special blessing, thank you for sharing it with us.

    Much love and hugs in your difficult time. I can't even think about the pain of losing a parent.
