I had origionally hoped for a post yesterday and the one I was going to post today will have to wait. I have been feeling really "blah" the past couple of days. I am thinking that alot of why I feel this way is because of what this weekend is. Mother's Day. This is the second Mother's Day without my mom. I miss her greatly..and my dad as well, who would have been 93 this coming Monday. My mom and dad married later in life and had me even later in their life. I grew up in a very loving home and knew how much I was loved.
My mom had quite a personality. Even when alzheimers was taking over her, her personality was really quite remarkable. She had a fantastic sense of humor, and one of the greatest joys of her life was her grandchildren. My children have wonderful memories of both my parents and for that, I am very thankful.
My dad was a quiet, strong man...to know him was to like him. He was a gentle soul. When he passed away rather suddenly, my mom's world fell apart, she died 19 months later.
Love you both mom and dad....miss you very much...but you will always be with me in my heart.
Have a good evening everyone.
