Happy Birthday Mom...I Miss You

Today is my Mom's birthday. I was put up for adoption at about 6 months old and I lost my adoptive Mother (Mom,) to a pulmonary embolism when I was nearly 20.
I don't think anyone is every ready to lose their parents, but I sure wasn't grown up enough to not need her anymore.
I miss her every day.
I will visit her grave today and bring her favorite flowers...Yellow Roses.
What I wouldn't sacrifice to have given her a dozen of them every week for the 20 years I was blessed to have her.
She was a truly loving, beautiful Woman, Wife & Mother.

Angel, I am so sorry to see this posting, that you lost your mother at such a young age. Knowing she is watching from above in Heaven I know is not enough consolation, wishing she were here on Earth. But you will be reunited one day.

Thank you, Beth. You're right, when you miss someone you love that much, patience can be a difficult virtue to practice. And you're also right about being with her again someday. I believe that day will come with all my heart.

fallen angel,

there will always be times in your life when you will wish that she was alive to go to her for advice, or just a shoulder to cry on. i know i still do in regards to my dad.
but that is love as it was meant to be felt. and it is that love that keeps them still alive in our hearts.
that is one hurt in life that you will never want time to heal.

what helps me is rememberance of the commandment to honor him.
and i take that to mean to live my life in such a manner that all would go to him and say "you have a son to be proud of."

Thanks Griper, and you're right...*that* kind of pain is the kind you want to keep close to you, so you always remember the love that came before it.
In my best of dreams, there are two sets of parents...my parents, sitting somehwere beautiful with me. The Mother I never knew, who tried to keep me but couldn't on her own. The Father she loved, killed in a jungle war so long ago, A Mom who loved me as only a Mom can, and a Dad who fought with 3rd ID in Korea and thankfully is still with me. And if I could know that I have lived a live worthy of their admiration; that I have made them proud...I believe that is the happiest I could ever be and the greatest thing I could ever acccomplish in my lifetime.
