I’m remembering my mother today. It’s Mothers Day and I recently read the little ditty that follows. I thought that I would pass it along for others to enjoy. We never realize how much they mean to us until they are gone.
At 3 yrs “Mommy, I love you”.
At 10 yrs “Mom whatever.
At 16 yrs “My Mom is so annoying.”
At 18 yrs “I wanna leave this house.”
At 25 yrs “Mom, you were right.”
At 30 yrs “I wanna go to Mom’s house.”
At 50 yrs “I don’t wanna lose my Mom.”
At 70 yrs “I would give up EVERYTHING for my Mom to be here with me”.
You only have one Mom. Love and appreciate her.
I made this collage last year with photos of my mom and dad and other family members. She was living in a nursing home because she could not care for herself any longer. I brought the photo to her and she giggled like a young girl. She seemed to really enjoy the photo and it always brought a smile to her face. She loved when one of the nurses or aides asked who was that lady in the bathing suit. It made me glad that I had taken the time to make the collage for her.
She passed away on April 7, 2011. Happy Mother’s Day, mom. I love you and miss you. For those of you out there reading this, remember that time passes quickly. We laughed and cried together many times, both in person and on the phone. Enjoy and honor her while you can. I can’t tell you how many times that I wish I could pick up the phone and talk and laugh with her.
