What I am about to say my sound silly to most of you. but the thought that hit me the day after mom died, was now I am an orphan, and I truly cannot go back home again. I didn't realize the impact that my mom had on my life....and always thought that when people said "I picked up the phone to call her" was going a bit overboard.
But here I was 2 days later wanting to talk to someone, anyone about the wedding. My thought was I'll call mom. It was such an incredibly sad feeling. Dad died 22 years ago and it took me quite awhile to get over losing him, so I know it will be the same for my mom.....It sure does change things when you know that they are both gone. I was so blessed to be 61 when I went through this. As bad as it hurts for me, I cannot imagine how difficult it must be for someone young.
May you all be blessed with your memories on this Memorial Day.
You may have had a lot of unfair things happen, but when you look back over your life, remember something good that has happened for you. Replay the good memories. Joel Osteen
