Oh, Ms M, sending you big gentle hugs. I have now lost both parents. My Mom passed 17 years ago but there are times when I really miss her - birthdays and special holidays the most. {{{{{{{{{{{{{Msmofet}}}}}}}}}}}}}

i'm sorry you're kinda down today, mofet. i'm sure your mom is looking down on you, missing you as well but also hoping you'd be happy.

It's a tough thing going through the loss of our loved ones. I wish you all inner peace & acceptance.

(((hugs))) msmofet....I know how you feel....I lost my mom a year and a half ago, and her birthday was 2 weeks ago. It's hard. They would want us to keep on keepin' on...easier said than done. Hugs to you and to all who have lost loved ones.

My mother died on July 4th 1965. I like to think all the fireworks are in celebration of her life, not her death.

I just came in from being out on the patio for more than three hours. We are having beautiful weather. The only reason I even came in is because my spine was beginning to hurt. I got a lot of my piece of embroidery. And the best part is no one came to sit with me and bother me. It was so peaceful. One of my best days. My daughter stopped by earlier and picked up her pie.

She starts her chemo on Monday. The noise inside her head has stopped and her incision isn't bothering and hurting her as much as it was when they first removed the staples. They told her that she would be getting headaches as her brain heals. They had to remove some of her brain and now it is trying to heal itself.

Now I need to take a nap. The pain med is kicking in.
