Today is my Mom's birthday, she passed away April 21, 2018. It's been a year and a half and sometimes it still feels like the first day my Dad told me. She was 82 when she passed and she looked and acted 62. She would have been 84 today and normally she and my Dad (86) would have done a fast walk to the gym then walked back home. They were married for 60 years and the most wonderful example of what a great marriage is.
Mom was in the hospital because she had pneumonia, she was doing well and then ended up with MRSA. She was in ICU and they just couldn't save her. One of the nurses slipped up and told me that she had actually vomited in her sleep and choked on it.
The attachment above is something I have only shared with my Husband and my Mom. I'm sure there are many others that feel the same way I did when I found this. I could have written it myself although I didn't.
So before your head hits your pillow tonight, if you pray or not, please be thankful for your Mother. I think about mine every day, I miss mine every day, I love mine every day.
#I miss you mom
