If I Had Had Just A Moment

Mum, I miss you everyday! Although we lived continents apart and had our ups and downs when I was a teen, as an adult and a Mother myself I admired and respected you. I remember how you loved my children, from the moment you saw them that sunny June day. And Mum they remember you and carry you with them in their hearts. I know that things ended the way you would have wanted, the brain trauma you suffered in the accident would have left you trapped within your own body. I wish often that I had had just a moment to say goodbye and tell you how much I truly loved you. When I look back on your life I see you wasted not a moment, I hope that years from now I will be able to look back and say the same thing of my own life. Your namesake is so like you, fully embracing life, the peacekeeper and willing to try her hand at anything, I know you would be so proud of her and all of your grand children. I am grateful for the way you raised me, making me a kind, compassionate and caring adult.

Rest In Peace Mum, I know you are close and watching over us.

Your Daughter xo

I know what you must have went through. A few years ago, my favorite sister had a massive heart attach and I was notified and told that it did not look promiseing. I instantly took off for the hospital 380 miles away and I don't think I was ever even close to the speed limit. All I could think about is that I had to get there brfore she died. I made it in under 5 hours. She was alive. As a matter iof fact, she survived the ordeal. The point of the comment is that I had to get there to tell her how much I love her before she died. It was all-consumming. I don't think I could have handeled it if she had died before I got there.

Thankyou mewold, this has been the hardest thing in my life for me, not being able to say goodbye (my stepfather held no wake & offered me no opportunity). But i am so thankful for my memories and the person she helped me become.

You have no idea how much I envy you. *HUGS*
