I remember wantiing grandma to fight back.
I remember her saying it's not worth it.
I remember her look that said just forget it, sit down, let him win, it's easier.
I remember thinking I'd never understand.
and then... sadly... I understood.

I remember the first time I complained about my dang kidneys giving me more grief than I knew how to bare. Then I remember someone, honestly it could have been any one of you, sent me a PM about Kades. Put everything into perspective and now I claim victory over my kidneys and continue to pray for Kades...

I remember the first PM I got on DC and I realized that there were real people, good people on the other side of this silly computer.

I remember wrapping my sick little Bailey in a pink blanket and taking her to the vet to have "it" done-and crying and crying and crying over it-and it hurts as much right this second as it did then.

I remember posting about it, with tears streaming down my face, and the outpouring of love and understanding from so many here at DC. I found out that day how many friends I have that I will likely never meet-many of whom will forever hold a very special place in my heart.

I remember seeing my sister off to the airport last week and reminiscing about the relationship we used to have-and how I won't let anything come between us ever again. Life is simply too short.

I remember that my Mom's mulled wine was better than this one,
I wish she remembered what recipe she used.
I WANT to remember to write down all my favorites and keep them somewhere my kids can find them one day.... or help me find.

I remember how much I loved her then
I remember how good it felt to be moved to a quiet room of my own
I remember the joy of having my whole family surround me
I remember some wonderful cards from my DC friends
I remember to be grateful each and every day

I remember when penny candy actually cost a penny!!

I remember when mom would send me to the store on my bike, at night, and she knew I would be OK

I remember when your neighbors really were "neighborly" and looked out for one another-actually making eye contact on purpose!!

I remember not once ever needing for anything ever as a child, and I remember finally realizing at about 19 yrs of age that we were the poor people in our neighborhood-and my Mom (may she rest in peace) never once let on

I remember hitting a whopper of a home run in little league and walking on sunshine for weeks afterwards.

Thanks LEFSE for starting this thread-I could go on forever......

I remember things in my life that shattered this youngster.
I remember things in my life that made me strong.
I remember many times, thinking if you dare say anything to one of my family members that you shouldn't, no matter my size or age, I'll take your head off.
I remember life was much more calming than it is now.

I remember the smell of coffee and knowing that hot chocolate was waiting too.

I remember the next year same thing only it was my baby girl
I remember Cade being born and his dad putting him in my arms...Heaven
