Would have been my mother's 82nd birthday. She died on May 22, 2006, and I miss her bunches. I wouldn't bring her back to be what she was for all the money in the world, for she was in pain and suffering....but as the Christmas holiday nears I think of her and daddy often.
They wanted so much for us kids. They never really had the means to give it to us. And then there were the other circumstances that kept them from living the dreams that they so wanted to live...
I hope they're together.
I hope they're happy.
I hope that all of the problems that plagued them on this earth have gone and that all that's left is the love they had.
Not all of my siblings share my feelings for our parents. Our parents weren't the best parents in the world, but you have to consider that they didn't have the best role models to work from...
None of it matters now anyway. What is in the past is often best LEFT in the past. Water under the bridge and all of that. Move onward, and hopefully UPward....to better things...a lesson that was taught yet again this week. One I will remember.
Anyway....Happy Birthday Mama...I love you!
