Guest Guest_Dester_* Posted November 29, 2005 Report Share Posted November 29, 2005 I still think of mom every day. I can hear her voice in the things I say. I can see messages sent to me from her in the hummingbirds that linger outside my window. She was such a huge part of my life...and the reality is that I didn't know how big until now that she's gone. Did I appreciate her enough? Absolutely not!! Did I spend enough time with her? No. I lived 1400 miles away....... It wasn't until the summer that I moved to Arizona to be closer to her that she got sick and died.....and I was robbed of what precious time we could have spent together. I miss talking to her on the phone 3 to 4 times per week and for an hour on Saturday. I just miss having her in my life. Mom and I did not see eye to eye and very many things in this life.....I was very a liberal thinker and she was not. In fact, much of the time I doubted she even liked me very much. She clearly favored my brother and didn't hide that fact. But when it came to just being together and traveling together and playing cribbage....we got along famously. As we get closer to the holidays and I think even more about all the years we spent getting to know each other....kind of like she was from the Moon and I was from some other planet, I miss all the time we had and all the possibilities we missed out on. The truth is that I loved my mom more than she ever knew....I told her so, but I still don't think she knew. Missing her more than ever, Dester Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
