Today Marks the Day

May 24, 2010

... when God called my "other" mother home. My "other" mom that God blessed us with when my dad remarried when we were 5. The mom that taught us to swim, make waffles, put up with us smelling like horses and tracking in dirt, tried to teach us knitting (I never could get it - but my daughter Janna did and still knits) and loved us for 37 years.
Grief is such a hard thing to understand. It can sneak up on you when you least expect it. I had thought I had cried all the tears I could cry, but those tears started flowing late last week and haven't stopped yet.
Mom, I love you and miss you so much....
Love you whole gobbies!!!

Let the tears fall...to me, it means love was there. Thinking of you, as always, and hoping you'll be wrapped up in the comfort of warm memories of your dear "other" mother. Hugs & kisses...

What a beautiful tribute to your mother. Your story really touched my heart this morning and I felt your pain in my heart for losing her. Cherish those memories of her always. :)

Beth Gales said...

I'm so sorry about your loss. The greatest gift we can give someone are memories. It sounds like you have been gifted with a ton to cherish always.

It is so hard to lose someone who meant so much to us. I still think about my first dog who was with me 15 years. And my Mammaw who has been gone since 1988. I always think about them and imagine the age they would be now. Which, of course, could never be -- but I still ponder and hold the memories. Tears are good for cleansing the soul. Hope that your days are brighter now that you let it all out. Best wishes always, Tammy
