Nope..not a typo, just not here asking for prayers. I am here to ask you all to do something that I only wish I could still do.
Tomorrow (Feb 3rd), will be the 2 year anniversary of my Mom’s death. Feb 3rd, 2007, and every Feb 3rd till my time comes to leave this earth will be a day that is burned into my mind, the ache in my heart, the tear in my eye that nothing and nobody can ever make all better.
Even though I have the best family, and some really great friends, (most of who are online friends and at Prim Mart Community) nothing and no one will ever replace what I lost.
So, in my day of grief I am here to ask you all to do something for me. It is not a prayer or hug I ask for but this instead….
If you still have your Mom please make sure she knows how much you love her. Let her know by not only doing, but saying. Words are not said enough, and they really should be. I told my Mom “I Love You” every time we spoke. I know she knew I loved her when she left this earth.
Many of you who have lost your Mom know what I mean. I would give anything to be able to be with my Mom and tell her “I Love You” one more time. Look into her eyes and see the love that only a daughter see’s, hear her voice as she laughs at something stupid I said, smell her as she hugs me goodbye, sit next to each other on the couch and just enjoy being together and not really having to say a thing, going shopping, out for lunch, enjoying a cold beer together, … all the things a Mother and Daughter do.
So pick up that phone and make a call. Get in your car and go for a drive. Send a card, gift or flowers. Whatever it is you do, just be sure to always say “I Love You Mom”. Because life is way to short and before you know it, all you will have is memories.
Here are a few memories I have..
These were some of my Mom’s favorite songs. Take a look if you have time.
This song was one that my Grandma loved, and it was played at my Grandma’s funeral. My Mom used to listen to it and cry. We had it played at my Mom’s funeral and every time I hear it, I sob uncontrollably.
Go Rest High on that Mountain
