Please Pray For Us

Saturday, March 09, 2013

Tomorrow (Sunday) is the 2 year Anniversary of my Moms passing away and it is still a very fresh wound to my family.
Please pray for my family so they can have healing in their heart and be strong tomorrow,
My mom was 48. She wold have turned 50 this may.
She was married 31 years to my Dad for better and worse...married age 16 -had me age 17. then had my two brothers one is yr younger and one is 5 yr younger.
My mom had long black hair straight hair that I always wanted cause I have my dads curly pauly shore hair.
She had blue eyes and never wore make-up my whole life.
She loved perfume, we actually used the same perfumes and it was hard to use mine for awhile cause it smelled like Mom and it would upset me and my family.
My mom collected precious moments figures and cars.
My mom loved sweet and sour pork. so much so that for her last birthday we had she asked me to make her a whole batch for herself. I still remember the smile on her face as she ate it.
She loved ice cream. i remember her getting a tub from DQ and eating it all. we teased her for it.
My mom loved animals and had a turkey named Tom and she would sit outside by the chicken coop and gobble to him and he would gobble back. He actually died a few months before my mom did. She also had a Siamese cat named Simba. She loved that cat. He also died not long before mom. looking back I think God probably took them to have them ready to comfort her because my Mom hated being alone without one of us with her. She loved us so much. She was terrified to be alone and afraid of the dark.
She was a good mom and I miss her so much some mornings I forget she is gone and still want to pick up the phone and call her. We spoke every single morning. She was one my best friends and in the end I was there to hold her hand when she left this world, she brought me into this world and I got to have her as a Mom for 30 years. I was blessed. I look so much like her its scary.
Her middle name was Rose, just like my grandmas. She was a nurse. She loved helping people. She was a very quiet person unless she was ticked off then she would really get loud. We had totally different personality. I'm very loud, outspoken and colorful. She was quiet and shy but she was my mom and I loved her despite of all the mistakes she made.
Thank you for praying for my family.

    Thanks for sharing your mom with us. I'm ashamed to say I don't talk to mine near a often as I should. I think I will correct that tomorrow, as it is too late to phone her tonight.

    There is no easy way out of grieving. You are doing the right thing with writing about it. I, too, believe that God took Tom and Simba early so they would meet her in Heaven. I am sure your Mom will always be with you; we just can't SEE them, but they ARE there!!! I will pray for the family's healing and strength. Thank you for sharing your soul with us. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Chasity....keep doing posts like this. It helped me when my mom died to bring her into my thoughts by bringing her into a conversation. "I remember when my mom"...."My mom always did"..."Do you remember when mom said" helped me to frame my mom in a positive light. When she died almost 22 years ago, the sun was shining, and people were going about their business. I thought the world should have STOPPED. I remember looking at the white puffy clouds against the blue June sky and being so so so upset. The memories hurt, but you have to keep going there.

    Praying for you and your family! Glad to hear that you are colorful and loud!

    You and your family are in my prayers and my thoughts.

    Focus on the good and happy and less on the painful. Allow time to soften the memories for you - you won't lose them, they'll still be there, just not as gut wrenching.

    Take it from me, you are the only one you can control. As much as you want to take away someone else's pain and hurt and heal their hearts, that is work they have to do on their own. Some people choose to get through it, some people choose to wallow. It's down to individual choice.

    You are right, it will take time. Be gentle with yourself and take care.

    There is a little book that has helped me a lot since I've lost so many dear ones in the past few years (12!). It's called "Grieving the Loss of Someone you Love." Just short little chapters that can be read in any order, depending upon the issue at-hand. Plus, what I do is to create things in remembrance of those I've lost. Daily little things that help me focus my grief toward the joy they brought me instead of the sorrow of loss. It's very hard and it has changed me in ways I can't describe. I'll say a prayer for you and your family.

    Beautiful tribute.
    1656 days ago
    Your blog is a memorial of sorts for your mom and it is beautiful! Please save it in your computer in another file so you always have it. In my church we do a lot of genealogy to stay connected to our family members who have passed on. Maybe you can do some genealogy on your family and learn important facts from your grandmother now that you live with her. Also we believe that our pets and animals will be with us in the next life so I know your mother was welcomed by them and departed family members as well.

    You are doing the right thing in reaching out, feeling your feelings and working through them, writing about them, and living your life. Keep up the GREAT work you are doing and don't forget to also take care of yourself. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Love, Chelsea

    I'm so glad you felt strong enough to share this beautiful tribute to your Mom; how loved she is still. We never stop missing our parents and live never quite feels the same without them -- both of mine were taken too young, and yours as well. I remind myself that I was truly blessed to have such loving parents -- they taught me so much, loved me no matter what; they weren't perfect, but I've come to realize that none of us are, and parenting is the hardest job of all. Treasure your memories; she will always be with you in your heart.

    My prayers go out to you and your family...maybe looking through old photos, doing something she liked to do will help with remembering her at her best time, and not the last few days of her life.

    I know how you are feeling, and the way you described her sitting with Tom, I could almost see it! Hang in there, you are doing your Mom proud! emoticon

    Beautiful memories of a wonderful mum. It's Mothering Sunday in the UK tomorrow. Saying special prayers for you all xx

    My prayers go for you and your family. You had a great mom.

    You should be proud of yourself as your Mom did an excellent job raising you to be a thoughtful and kind person. Grieving is stages and I have found, after losing my Dad, that eventually you get to a place where you can talk about your loved one with a smile not tears but the little corner of sadness in your heart will always be there.

    This was a wonderful blog celebrating the life of someone you love and the precious memories you have.
    Sending prayers for you and your family.
    1656 days ago
    Praying for you. Grief and mourning is hard. But it sounds like you are already finding ways to celebrate her life. Seek after the Lord for your comfort. He promises He will be there.
    1657 days ago
    Isavedme what a great testimony to your mom and I know that you miss her tremendously. Celebrating a life is difficult when you're still mourning the passing of that life. BUT in your blog you celebrated her life. You talked about the things she loved... the things she enjoyed- that is how you celebrate a life. By doing some of those things or remembering her sitting by the coop goggling with TOM or enjoying the foods she loved. The great way to love her memory is to continue to honor her life.
    She must have been an incredible woman. Prayers for your and your family as you go through this weekend and continue to let your hearts heal with the great memories of her being with you.

    She sounds like a wonderful mom who raised an amazing daughter. I can just envision her smiling about your blog. emoticon
