I will remember you

Today is my mothers birthday, she would have been 83 and I wish she was still here.  Sometimes I will pick up the phone to tell her something and remember she is gone.  All told she lived a good life and was a happy and positive person.  When my dad died she was 55 and never was interested in another man, she always said "when you have had the best why would you want someone else".  She lived in Vancouver most of her life, and I lived in a different province, but I saw her every year at least twice and phoned her long distance everyday. When my sister passed away there was nobody left in Vancouver, all her friends had passed away.  I told her it was time to move here.And she did, and never looked back.  I loved having the time with her and we had 4 great years together.


  1. how nice of you to share that story with us. Thank you.

  2. What a great remembrance to your mom...great card...simple, but very very effective!

  3. that was a nice story, and made me feel sad and remember my mum who died in 2007. thank you for sharing.

  4. This is such a beautiful post about your mother. I don't think we ever get over losing our moms. It's good that you had those four years together.

  5. Beautiful post Lee and thank you for sharing this, I know that it's not that easy to share these kinds of thoughts because they mean so much to us.
    And I agree with Janet, I also don't think we ever get over losing our lovely mums, I still haven't and will always, always miss her, but will also be so grateful that I've had her in my life.
