Missing my mom

Saturday, February 08, 2014

Been thinking of my late mom here lately. She was a great woman. She put up with me being a pain in the butt as a teen. Now I regret being a pain. I still regret not seeing that she was having a stroke in 1998 that put her in a nursing home. I did a science fair project on it in the 7th grade on stokes. She was the best cook. Since the stroke in 1998, I forgot what her voice sounded like, her hugging me, and all of the small things? Am I the only one that feels this way? I feel so alone even though my dad is still here. Thanks for letting me rant. Needed it. Plus it helped me cry. I haven't really cried for her yet.

Wish that it was warmer and we didn't have any big dogs in the neighborhood so I can go for a walk. I miss taking one by myself and with the dog. I know that I took one this past Sunday to church but it was in the single digits temperatures. But I really want to go for a long walk that takes me out to our fairgrounds on the other side of town and back home.

    So sorry that you lost your Mom so young - it's always hard to lose those we love dearly. Hope you can cherish all the great memories you have about her on days when you're missing her more. emoticon

    You wrote this on my birthday and I too miss my mom. She passed 3 weeks ago so this was the first birthday I didn't have that call from her to tell me about "that day." I missed that along with so many other things about her. So you know you are not alone. And you are very understood. emoticon

    I was a brat as well I mean BIG time! She was a saint having to put up with me. So my mom died back in 1997 I have her voice, taste her cooking & hear her singing... She is still inside you you just need to sit still and listen.

    God bless & emoticon

    Being a man have the same feelings about my Dad, was kind, hard working man, still find many life lessons I still do today. I had a hard time until I stopped my truck along the road and just really broke down. I feel tears in my eyes now. That was in 1961! Always love him! Skeeter

    I am so sorry you are missing your mom. I know what you are going thru. I lost mom 10 years ago. We were so close. At times I still call her and tell her something. I was going thru a divorce before I was told mom had cancer. It was a rough time. It takes time. Cherish each precious moment you had. emoticon

    I lost my mother in 1992. I still think of, and miss her, everyday. You are a lucky person to have had a great mom. Treasure your memories. emoticon

    Sorry about your mom, keep your memories alive and celebrate the good times you shared. What do the big dogs in the neighborhood do, chase you? I see people walking with sticks to scare the big dogs away with.

    Pretty sure teenage daughters are all a pain to their moms, with few exceptions. Moms expect it emoticon have a great weekend

    So happy, DONE GIRL, that you had a mom you can miss. Good Moms are great to have. My mother died when I was 17 and I have never missed her. She wasn't a bad Mom at all, just not close to me since she'd been married before and had other kids. Her marriage to my father was as she'd say "one of convenience."

    It doesn't matter how old you are when you lose your mom. It makes you feel like an orphan. I lost my mom in 2001. Sending you hugs emoticon
