took it for granted

Saturday, March 23, 2013

Today, I went to the cemetary to put the wreath on my folks grave...then, I went to the house (hopefully the sale wil go through)..I found the key to the house and went inside...oh my...the memories just came flooding back!...but, the house which was once my home is just a house...so sad...so empty...I never thought my folks would be gone...we think they will live forever in the house we called home...I took for granted that they would always be there, but, no...they are with the Lord now...happy, at peace...
I wish I would have been there more for them, but, my own family and life sometimes didn't allow for it...I have some wonderful memories, some not so wonderful, but, that's life...sometimes good..sometimes not so good, but, they are my memories...
Be at peace mom & dad...thank you for everything..I love you both and miss you terribly..
(oh..one more thing...I ripped out a root from your lilac bush mom...hope you don't mind)

    Thank you for sharing this tender moment. I always think about the house where I grew up, and wish I could go back, but nobody is there that I know. They would look at me as though I was a crazy person. My memories have to serve me well. I love that you snipped the lilac. I have my childhood yard memorized and have planted many of the plants in many places that surrounded my home. My mom died when I was 12, and after my dad remarried, we left my "home".
