I guess tonight was the night for a major meltdown. It was something so simple that triggered it. Fred brought in the first three roses...the ones that normally would've been for Momma. This time, they were for me. Apparently, in the back of my mind, they still belonged to Momma...always have and always will. For no apparent reason, I broke into tears..uncontrollable, hours later. They are on her lamp table, by her chair, now. I hope she is looking down and can enjoy their beauty. God in heaven...I miss my Mother and always will. This hurts all the way down to my very soul and there's no stopping it. How am I supposed to live now. Time...only time.

My Precious Mother is with Jesus now

I really dislike having to put this out there, but I lost my Mother on March 15, 2007. I will post her obit and photo just because. I have to do something and this feels right, for now.
