I came across a picture of...
Friday, March 26, 2010
my Mom. She wasn't supposed to die on Friday January 21, 2005...but she did.
It was the day before Johnny Carson died. They both died from emphysema.
Tonight I was looking for a picture of someone else but I found a picture of my Mom as a teen wearing her uniform and her H. M. C. S Discovery hat during WWII
I have always been told I have the "........." nose and how much I look like "so and so" in the family but I couldn't see it. I see it now.
I never wanted to be "like" my Mom...sitting at the kitchen table drinking coffee and smoking cigarettes. That's my main memory of her.
I'm glad (I have hopefully) changed some of our historical traits but I also now know I WISH I'D HAVE TAKEN THE TIME TO GET TO KNOW HER BETTER!
I'm sorry I couldn't re-write history. I miss you.
