Ouch. Barely touches the hurt and loss. Lost my Mom when I was 4.
Beautiful memorial you have there for her. You've carried her forward and lived the life she wanted for you. You have honored her.

Ouch, Susan... 4 years old? God damn, I'm so sorry for your loss at such a tender age.

Thank you for your kind words, I appreciate it. :)

It's been 8 years since mom left but there are still those times I find myself wishing I could tell her about what's going on.

I'm with ya, Michelle. . . my mom liked fun socks and every time I found some I'd buy them and send them to her. . . she died the day after Christmas, 2003 and I still find myself walking over to the fun sock displays when I find them!

:-(

AND. . . Leggies. . . thanks for thinking of HolaCreeeeeeees!

Hi Michelle,
My heart is with you, 100%. I'm so sorry for your recent loss.
I wish so very much that my mom could have met my son. As he continues to get older, I find myself wishing I could talk to mom about life, love and raising a child.

I will say this... since she died at 35, I find myself filled with endless joy whenever I have a birthday. 40 now, I look forward to all the years ahead of me.

Kath... my sweet Kath... you rock my world, in the best ways ... I'm not sure you are aware of just how much love you bring. {heart hug to you}

I find myself thinking of my mom every time the wind blows and lifts up my long curls. I find myself thinking of my mom when the sun rises and when the sun sets. I think of my mom every time a train blows it's whistle.

Moms are awesome.

~peace, Leggs

Truth be told at such a young age I don't remember her that much because she was ill for so long. i had a great dad and a phenom Grandmother (father's mom) that gave me so much "mothering" that I never felt "un-mothered". My Dad just turned 90 and is starting to have some "issues".
But those that have established a true Mother Daughter relationship and have it ripped from them I found, are left with a far greater void that follows them all the rest of their lives with the lingering shadows of "what might have been".

Susan

There is a void, certainly, this is true, but I make up for the void by seeing the beauty in each day I am offered. I have always said that I would not change my life experiences, or I would not be the amazing mother and strong woman I am today. (self promotion, at it's finest) {smiles} I can say that simply by looking and listening to my son, who is amaze balls.
If I wonder "what might have been", I will miss out on "what is going on Now". The loss of my mom, and other experiences in my life have allowed me to learn lessons most may never allow themselves to learn, to realize the strength I possess, and an appreciation for everything, good and bad.

I am so happy to hear you never felt un-mothered, Susan... it sounds like the formative people in your life made sure your heart was handled with care. A true gift.

My job is done here.... clearly. :) j/k

Me thinks my 20 year old most likely opted to have his beautiful girlfriend pick him up from the airport.
I don't blame him. She's quite lovely. ~xx



zBrown... you're magic.
