For My Mom

There is a lot going on today: confirmation at church, Mother's Day, my kitty boys' birthday, and the tenth anniversary of the day my mother died.
That day seems so long ago, yet so fresh. I didn't sit vigil next to her bed for hours, but I was there with her when she passed away. She fought it, struggling, until I told her to go, go see Grandma and Grandpa, and she would get to see Arlan again. She seemed to relax after I said that, and slipped away a moment later. The last words she heard in this world were "I love you".
There is much more about that day in my heart, but I'm not ready to write about it yet. For today we just remember she didn't want to leave us, and we will see her again.

That picture always makes me cry. She wore her hair like that almost always. I remember her just like that and wearing that blouse usually with a skirt but sometimes with jeans. This is very likely the last year with my mother so these feelings are very close now. I've tried writing about her on my blog and with the exception of some few memories I haven't been able to tell her story as I remember it. Each time I write one I delete it. She was my best friend, my aunt and my greatest champion. I love aunt Lynn.

Tammy this the most beautiful memoria for my baby sister, I carry her in my heart and have memories daily of our life from the day she entered this world she became my baby, I had the caring of her with moms help of course but she was my responsiblily and I took it very seriously. I just hope she knew how much I loved her and still do and I miss her so much. To me she was always so beautiful. I know I will see her before too much longer and what a joy that will be to hold her again. Sherry
