HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY TO ALL MY OTHER MOTHERS.............



Mother's Day is always a bittersweet day for me.  I lost my own beautiful mother many, many years ago and miss her still.

However, I had been fortunate enough to have many other wonderful women in my life who have filled this need when necessary.  My beautiful Aunt Ruth, my best friend Jan, my sister-in-law Sandy, friends Mary, Lainey, Marilyn...just to name a few.  All these women have been there for me
when needed and helped me tremendously through happy as well as difficult times.

The other side of this coin is my son....SCOTT.  Scott was born on Mother's Day...51 years ago.  He is no longer here and on this day I can remember with complete clarity his birth and all that it entailed.  I MISS HIM....it is just that simple!

Not trying to be maudlin or sad, it just is what it is.

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY TO ALL THE MOTHERS AND THE OTHER MOTHERS OUT THERE.

Here is sending all of you a big smooch.

  2. Happy and sad memories here as well. My mom passed before we had a chance for closure. I miss her so much. Just wish I could hug her and tell her how much I love her.

    My friend, I am so glad you are still here. I've missed you.

  3. Jo-I am so very, very sorry for your loss. We lost a grandchild and that was bad enough but it is just not in the proper order of things to have our children predecease us. My heart aches for you and I know you were not writing this for sympathy. Life is what it is whether we like it or not.

    I am glad you had a good mom and that you have had other wonderful women in your life. That is a blessing! xo Diana

  4. Mother's Day is so very hard for so very many. I remember when your son died and that pain may dull but it never disappears. Here's to all the moms, all the love you gave your son, which I know he values to this day in his next world.
