    "We don't have forever to tell our mothers how much we love and appreciate them. We only have today."

    I agree, Mrs. Bird. My mom was killed by a drunk driver when I was 19, she was 37. There are so many things that I wish I would have said to her that I never did. My dad made fun of us if we said "I love you," and that "L" word was never used around the house. Us kids were suppose to be hardened, and that word was just wrong.

    MY 2 boys know differently! And even if they get a little embarrassed in front of their friends, they still tell their mom and dad "I love you" :)

    Thank you very much for this blog :)

  • I wanted to write something inspiring. I hope it meant a little something different to everyone.

    Thank you for your kind words. I have many friends who have lost their mothers in the past two years. The ache never quite goes away does it?

    The ache seems to diminish as it absorbs the riches of the time I had with our mother and other mothers I have known. After 22 years, I still miss Mom, and there are still things I don't know that I said to her and other things that I know I said and probably shouldn't have. But the memories keep popping up from time to time and thoughts like you so eloquently expressed in this blog solidify the goodness of the 40 years we had together.
