    Default 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.
    Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!

    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.

    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
