Thank you Roxanne, for sharing such a powerful gift of shared love. I am so sorry that you only had 20 years with your mother, yet felt like I could hear her voice in those words.roxanne wrote:I'll go next. Today I remember my mother. She was the most beautiful and strong of all mothers.
When she was sick with cancer at 51 and saw me crying hiding in the bathroom, she came in and told me not to cry and please let her die because living in bed was not what she wanted after having been an active and vital woman. We looked at each other's eyes and shared the sweetest moment of our very short time on this plane together. She told me so much with her eyes. I was 20 years old.
Thanks, Chrissy! My mother also always enjoyed going out to lunch. Those moments are definitely still “okay” and memorable.chrissyr wrote:Lovely to read those bittersweet posts. My mother is now 5 years into her dementia journey at age 79. My sister and I were blessed to still be able to take her out to lunch today. She was a wonderful mother to us, creating a haven of safety and joy in childhood.

I did see her interact and love my brother's children and I remember and can still feel her love for me. Thank you mom for all that love. This is the love I now pass on to my grandchildren. I'm 79 now and they are the highlight of my life!
