Remembering MOM.....

It's hard to believe it's been a year mom, since you pasted away from cancer... A year with no phone calls.... tell me something exciting bitchy girl... Mom... my "ugly" dolls did get published!
A year of her not speaking her mind... So many changes in this year. The ugly side of family comes out... I won't go into it, yet I have to admit the level of disrespect my "fruit loop" sister has shown has even shocked me at time... A mom who gave her everything....sigh... it's been a difficult year for my brother and I.....

How do I remember her... Just like you see her, giving me the finger...always hating her picture take...a year.....life goes on, it has it's up and downs... Everyone goes through it at some point, sadly...




here is mom with cousin's from Ireland. There some fun in between treatments and family "stuff"

Mom, I wish for you peace, you had a tough life! I realize what a "buffer" you were to so much.. You life was difficult with the "fruit loop", yes peace finally and much happiness...If I could only know that for sure... I hope where ever you are, you are having a great time and someone is getting the finger! Love you mom! OLM





In honor of mom...if you have been putting off the dreaded colonscopy...go schedule it! It saves lives!

Marie,
I can't believe it's been a year! I am sorry you are having to have issues with family~ there's always one or two it seems.
I hope your mom~ well, I am sure she knows she was loved~ the unknown is hard, I truly hope that she is at peace in her soul. I hope you are finding some peace too sweetheart! I think that was what first drew me in to your blog, seeing how much you were connected to your mom, you were also her rock, and she depended on you. You are a good egg Marie~ you gotta a little "stinker" in there from time to time (smiling), but your heart is pure gold girl! You always make me laugh and cry with you, and I hope that you have a good weekend, and just reflect on the good times you had with your mom.
Hugs,
Renee

It never goes away. It has been 21 years since I lost my mother and I still miss her terribly.
Colonoscopy...yuk, but when I had one, they removed something they say would have turned into cancer years down the road. So I am glad I had one.
Your mother sounded like a wonderful lady.
Blessings :)

You are an inspiration. A year and you have made it. No matter how difficult it might have been. I, too, will be able to say that this time next year as we layed Mother to rest yesterday. Your Mom sounds like she was a wonderful person with a great personality. I am sure she is smiling down on you tonight.
Hugs,
Angela

I don't think the missing ever goes away. But you made it through that round of "first withouts", so you know you can do make it now. Thinking good thoughts for you tonight.

Karen/My Colonial Home said...

Oh my Marie, I remember last year all the posts about your mother.
I believe she is in peace and happy...we have to believe that don't we...that's what Faith is.

I don't think your family is too out of the norm for many, many families. We all put on a good face but there are 'things' in a lot of familys.
Hang in there - this must have been a hard year with each special day that passed.

P.S.....MY GORGEOUS ORNAMENTS ARRIVED TODAY....I just didn't have a chance to e-mail you.

Hugs,
Karen

Hi Marie, Your mom sounds like she was a ball of fun!!! I know it has been such a hard year for you. My mom hates her picture taken too, so it is hard for me to get pictures of her.
Cherish the wonderful memories, and I believe that she is still watching over you with pride and a smile. Bunches of hugs, Lecia

It has been 10 years since I lost my Mom and there aren't very many days that I don't have to stop myself from going to the phone to call her to "chat". Now we chat without a phone.

I just finished up chemo for colon cancer in July. Had my colonoscopy last week and it came back clean. Yahoo.

Thanks for sharing, memories are what get you through sometimes.

My mom has been gone for 6 years and I still think of things I want to ask my mom or tell her.

Big(((Marie)))thinking of you!

P.S. -- I also received my ornies yesterday, thanks so much.

Thanks for sharing. I think our moms are "up there" being naughty together and giving others the one finger salute!
Hugs :)

I feel ya. It's been 2 years since I lost my sweet mother. Friday I brought a brownie home from work and started to take it to her. She loved chocolate. Some days it's hard to remember they're gone. They can leave such a void in our lives.
Take care.
