a place to wander...
we live with our wonderful memories.
love to you & your memories...ox
Her joyful smile in the photos wraps around like a hug and hugs from our Moms and Dads never leave us...
Deanna~ Yes we do :)Cindy~ xo backMarti~She had a great smile!
a pause is good and much needed in these busy times
Saskia~ This is the month of pausing for me. Mindful moments.
Not a day goes by that I don't miss my mother. Strange, isn't it, the way we feel like orphans no matter how old we are.
Jenclair~ Yes...we always want our mothers, don't we?
Sending love Nancy x x x
Thanks Helen :)
Oh Nancy, me too. I miss my mom so much every single day. I wanted to share THIS with you. It's a Native American prayer. It is very special to me...I give you this one thought to keep-I am with you still - I do not sleep.I am a thousand winds that blow,I am the diamond glints on snow,I am the sunlight on ripened grain,I am the gentle autumn rain.When you awaken in the morning's hush,I am the swift, uplifting rushof quiet birds in circled flight.I am the soft stars that shine at night.Do not think of me as gone -I am with you still - in each new dawn.
I love this. xoxo
Cathie~ Thank you for this and so...you know about the missing.Peggy~ Thanks xoxo
A simple, lovely tribute. October 16 will be the year anniversary of my mother's death... I was sort of fine until around her September birthday and then, well, its amazing how the body remembers - or the psyche, or something, but its intense.
Valerianna~ Has it been a year already? Hard to believe on my end...probably feels like forever & just one moment on your end. My Mama's birthday is in August, which in this situation feels very close to October. A body does remember.I will be thinking of you as you celebrate your own Mama.
what a sweet remembrance... getting some old photos out and lighting a candle. Just yesterday (my mother's been gone 18 years) I thought, "Nobody makes coleslaw like my mother did."
Thanks Dee. I'm wondering if things feel any different after 18 years. Love the coleslaw comment...makes me wonder what it tasted like :)
my mom's been gone 26 years. it is different. i still miss her but it doesn't hurt anymore. i still miss her not knowing things.. grandchildren she missed, life happenings. it taught me that it will be sad for my children when i am gone. (we can hope that will be the progression) we have talked about it but i am sorry they will have that sorrow.
