God Bless My Mother....

In Loving Memory

Happy Mother's Day, Mom I never saw my Mom "grow old". She was just always Mom, never getting older, always the same. And I always thought she would be around. But, in the blink of an eye, she was gone. Always caring for others and not taking care of herself. If you needed her, she was there without question. She has come to my rescue more times than I can count. When her health started declining, it was like a roller coaster ride. Downhill really fast. She was in and out of the hospital for a couple of years and when we had to put my Dad in a nursing home, we decided to put them in the same room together. Mom's mind had gotten really bad and she couldn't understand why Daddy wouldn't get up out of the bed. Among other things, she pulled his feeding tubes out and we had to move her down the hall to another room so she couldn't hurt him. Not intentionally, of course. She doted on my Dad and they were married almost 58 years when my Dad passed away. One year and four days later my Mom joined my Dad. I miss them so much and I could kick myself for not spending more time with them. Instead, I was busy with what I wanted to do thinking my parents would always be around. But in the blink of an eye.......hmmmm, I love you Mom, Happy Mother's Day from the bottom of my heart~Kathy

Your Mother was Beautiful!
I have lost both of my parent's too. And the same thoughts have ran through my mind so many times I have lost count. There is no greater blessing than to have a wonderful loving dad and mom. I agree with the previous post they are looking down on you and so proud of you...
God bless you!
