Mine left this sweet world a few years ago, although honestly, it feels like last week, and I still ache inside when I think of her. When you don't have your Mom anymore, you realize, no matter how many conversations you have with her out loud in your car on the way to work, theres only a touch of comfort in it. She never answers. You can't share your life with her anymore. All you have is the hope that you're making her proud, and raising your kids with the same optimism, caring, and love she gave you. My mom was a mom to the end....I went to see her on a Sunday night late - she was in the late stages of terminal cancer. I'd been summoned to my folks house as she was convinced tonight was 'the night' and insisted on all of her kids coming to the house, that she wouldn't live to see another day. I went into the sunroom where she was sitting in the semi-darkness. I hugged her, and all she said to me was 'you were my sweetest one'. I suspect she told my brother and sister this as well. Still, it was the epitome of what my mother was all about. She always made each of us feel like we were her 'sweetest one'.
I really really miss my Mom.
Afterall, she's my Mom
And beyond that, what other descriptors are necessary.
I love you Mom.
Happy Mother's Day to all of those that birthed the rest of you crazy SOBs.
And if your Mom's still around, hug her so hard and long today she tells you she can't breathe.
