Leaving

Wednesday, December 12, 2012

I am leaving Spark People because of medical problems. As you noticed I have not been on for several months. I was hoping it would clear it up but it is not working. So I have made a decision that I have to leave and if things get better maybe I can come back on again.

Thank you everyone for all the support you gave me while I was on here losing weight, helping me along the way. For most of all for your friendship you gave me. That is the most important thing that all of you gave me & showed me. I miss it the most.

So I want to thank everyone for all you did for me & i will miss you deeply. But for now this is way it has to be.

Love

~ Cathy ~


Merry Christmas & Very Happy & Healthly New Yeat to all of you.

My Mother's Memories

Thursday, February 03, 2011

Since my passed away two years ago all I have left are the memories of her and they good memories. I guess sometimes we take them for granted when they are alive, but once they die we miss them dearly. I remember all the things I did for my mother when she was alive and don't regret one thing I for her, all I wish is that I wish I would have did more for her. I love my mother so much and always will and I miss her lot. She was so easy to get along with. She was my mother and I am very proud of her! Mom today is you 2nd anniversary. 2/3

The Good Go Young

Thursday, September 10, 2009

My sister in law has been married to my brother for 40 + years. About 2 weeks ago I got a call she was admitted to Hamot Hospital in Erie. They checked her over & found a tumor in her kidney which is benign & tumor in her brain which came out yesterday (9/9/09). It is cancerous and it is in the late stages & there is nothing they can do. They gave 6 months max to live and she only 61. My brother is putting her in the same home my mom died in. He is not taken it well & he wanted to call my mom & tell her and she could help him then he realized she is gone and that really makes it worse.

She was always a very nice person and helped everyone (even strangers)out. So why is God taking her away from us? She told me story on the 4th of July: She was shopping and the person that was with this old woman somehow she got away and she was walking with a walker and she saw her & grabbed her arm and helped her. She was so thankful for people like her. The person that was with her thanked her for grabbing her and helping so they could find her.

Now my sister in law is confused & knows nothing of what is going on. She was always used to taking care of people young & old. I guess in her own way it is good she doesn't comprehend this. She would not like this all.

The only think I can do now is pray for her & hope for a miracle.

My Exercise

Thursday, September 03, 2009

I have been walking tried to get 30 minutes a day and I was unable to do. So about 2 week ago I started doing 10-15 minutes in the morning & 10-15 minutes in the evening. So far I have been doing pretty good with it and some days I do Leslie instead of walking. But I have learned doing a couple of times a day and not all at once is good. I can also see a difference in the way my clothes fit.

A Big Decision

Thursday, August 13, 2009

My mother died 6 months on Aug 3 and we are starting to get used to the idea she is gone. I have been to her grave & that hard enough to do that. I dreaded the day I had to see name on the tombstone. But I somehow got through it. Now the Home that she was in for 1 year & 9 months is having a Memorial Service for her. I want to go but I think it will just bring back more memories of her & I will have to start over from square one. I talked to my sisters & they said they are going but they have the same fear I have. We are cleaning the house out & it seems lonely when we walk in there like I shouldn't be here & my brothers have said the same. I have talked to a couple of people that went & they said the service was very nice, but would not comment on how they felt after it was over with.

    I can relate. My grandma died on August 7, 98 and my mom on august 14, 96. I still miss them. My mom's house was so lonely without her and it was nice to get it sold.

    Hi--
My mother has been gone now for almost 9 years, and I went through some of same fears and other feelings that you are going through right now. The retirement community did the same thing. They would hold a memorial service for all of those residents who had passed away in a period of time. I debated about going. My brother and sister live far away so they really weren't in a position go attend, but I lived near by. I asked a good friend to go with me for support. I was so glad that I went. It made me feel really good to hear the kind words and know that my mother had meant something to them as well. Your feelings are going to be the same whether you go or not---you're not ever going to forget those memories that you have, but this could be a really nice way to celebrate your mom's life one more time.
Good luck and best wishes,
Patty

  Hi. You don't know me, but I just saw your post and wanted to offer some support.

My mom has been gone for six years, so I can empathize with your feelings. Trust yourself to do what's best for you. Sometimes, revisiting memories can be very healing, but, if you don't feel up to it, be gentle with yourself. Losing a parent is huge and I'm not sure we ever totally get over it, but little blessings, wonderful memories, some random thing a person shares that we didn't know...have a way of helping.

Good thoughts to you.
