Mother's Day

Sunday, April 22, 2012

This year mother's Day will take on a whole new meaning for me. Jack, my one and only child is gone. My mother is gone. My mother-in-law is gone. My husband's 101 year old grandmother is living and she will get my attention. I... think if my cousins will let me, that I will go and see my Aunt Leona, she and Uncle Bill have always been there for me after dad left and then mom.
To all my friends, say a special prayer for me on Mother's Day and if you have time to come or to send a hug it will be greatly appreciated. If you cannot, then give your mom's a little special umph in the hug that you give them
Last year on Mother's Day, Jack gave me one of those music cards. He wrote inside it. Whenever you think of me, play this and you will know how I feel.

I am sharing this to say, that life will get you down, but it goes on and we must stay as healthy as we can to take care of the living. I know that he wants me to be healthy and help friends, relatives, and whoever God puts in my path to lend an ear to or a hand to in life.
It is the times that we share with others that makes life worth living. It is not the time that we spend living those memories. It is the time we spend making new ones that keeps us going.

    My heart is breaking for you. I cannot imagine the pain of losing your child. Losing my mom two months ago just about took me out. We do bounce back slowly. I'm sending you hugs and good wishes not just for Mother's Day, but always. You deserve it. Took good care of yourself.

    I know that card is accurate. Your precious son is smiling down upon you, cheering you on to your own finish line, and will be there to greet you. Know that you are in my prayers and that I love you.

    Awww, sweetie, of COURSE I'll send hugs. It is such a beautiful song that he gave you!

    My son will be in basic training still, too so don't know if I'll even get a phone call . . . I'm supposing not.

    My hugs and prayers for you.
