My Beautiful Mom
My father passed away when I was only 8 years old. My mom raised my older sister, brothers and I, as a single mom. She was my best friend. We were always close. She never complained about anything and would always look at the bright side of things. She encouraged me to become a strong woman and the alternative was not an option!
We had a hard life, suffered the extrems you might say... loosing my father, loosing our home and even became homeless for a while. But all the while she did pervail and helped mold my brothers, sister and I into strong, motivated good hearted people. She sufferred 8 heart attacks in a 15 year period... She had 2 quadruple bypasses and lost her battle to lung cancer last year on June 6th 2010. She never complained about the pain, NEVER... She smiled until the day she passed. She was my strong momma, I MISS HER SO MUCH... I miss her smell, calling her on the phone to say Hi, seeing her precious smile light up the room. My mom really was my best friend. And now its my turn to be a mom! 3 bueatiful children, ages 13, 2 and a new little one 5 months old.
Oh how they will miss there Grandmama but I will pass on her traditions, her love and her stories....Happy Mothers day Everyone, Cherish and Love your mom, Treat her as if it is her last day on Earth, EVERY DAY.
