A Mother's legacy

Tuesday, October 24, 2017

Without meaning to sound crass, my sister came over and told us our mom had left us some money - of course stupid me managed to make a comment and ended up making both women in the living room crying. (I was alluding to preferring to have my mom rather than the money).

    They probably agree and it made them cry.

    Actually I am the SON but I got a chuckle out of it I guess I screwed up -there were 3 of us in the room at the time.

    I think the majority of us understand. Most women cry - it's part of who we are. The women in your family are probably crying because they agree with you. I'm sure everyone would prefer to have your mom back.

    During this time, little things will make you and others cry. Don't beat yourself up about it. I know the feeling--money does not replace a parent--that is just a fact, ((HUGS)) and be strong.

    Sounds like you and your Mom had a beautiful Mother Daughter relationship.....I am so sorry for your loss, my prayers are with you and your family... emoticon

    I think your comment was very revealing of your relationship with your mom and not at all stupid. I never knew a mother's love, so it was a warm surprise when my own children love me unconditionally.
