MY SWEET MOTHER

Thursday, July 07, 2011

I went to see my Mother in the Nursing Home yesterday. I took her a milkshake and I had to make her take a few breaks while drinking it because I was afraid she would get a headache. The shake was a big hit with her. She drank the whole thing in about 10 minutes. For the rest of my visit, she just smiled and had a nice conversation. When I say conversation, it is not a real conversation, she mainly speaks gibberish.

Our conversations are one-sided and I always enjoy them. When she is in a good mood like that I even think she enjoys our visits too. Especially when she wants to give me a kiss and then she wants to kiss and squeeze my hand. I never thought of myself as a 'Mama's girl' but I think I am and it is a good feeling. Mother is 90 years of age and seems determined to be on this earth as long as she can. Now I know where I get my stubbornness.

If I turn out to be like my mother, I could do a whole lot worse. As I said, she is a very sweet mother and even though she is still alive, I miss her because she is just a shadow of her former self. I hope to have her with me for a long time.

    Hi there,
    My best friend has a similar relationship with her husband and although it is hard, there is something loving about it. Good for you for making such thoughtful choices--enjoying your time together is definitely a bonus.

    Bless you for your kindness and love. I also want to thank you for all of your kind comments on my blogs and my page. You are an awesome spark friend.

    Gentle hugs,
    Sylvia

    I'm so glad you get to spend time with her, even if she isn't the same woman she once was.... I feel strongly that she knows you are with her during your visits and her smiles and kisses are for you and you only! What a joy to have a milkshake when you are used to institutional food! You are a sweet daughter too! Give your mom a big Spark kiss from all of your Spark friends! We love and appreciate the woman your mom helped to produce!

    You are so sweet. It is such a shame that in today's world we don't appreciate our mothers as much as we should.
