Happy Birthday Mom… I miss you!



Happy Birthday Mom… I miss you so much!!!

Today would have been my mother‘s 86th birthday and there isn’t one day that goes by that I don’t think of her and wish I could call and here her voice.

Even though she has been gone a few years I still have a heavy heart when I realize I will never be hugged by her again, or get to share my day with her.  So I blog… and maybe someone else gets a little joy out my shares.

She taught me my love for music, and no matter how long I was away, she always loved me unconditionally.  I am glad that I was able to develop our relationship and make my amends to her for being an absentee daughter during my “journey of self discovery“.  I blamed her for a lot of my own spiritual and emotional shortcomings growing up… and found out it all began with me!  I learned how to take responsibility for some bad choices that I made, and to face my addictions and I am recovered today.  Almost 30 years of recovery has given me the most amazing life I could have ever imagined.  I found me, I found God, I found a fellowship that helped me put my life together, on step at a time.  I found women who helped me strip away the inauthentic self I was drowning in.  I found women who handed me the “tools of recovery” to recapture the child within, who was waiting for me to find her.

I am Happy, Healthy and In Love with my life today because of the journey that led me here.  I am grateful for every day and most grateful that I got to have a love affair with my mom in the last 20 years of her life.

I am blessed to have been raised by her.  She had the biggest heart in the world, and I am, and always be my mothers daughter…

Thank you God for giving her to me as my mom… you did real good!!!!

  1. Wishes her a happy birthday … and thinks in my head she might hear it.

    *hugs* …tis hard when one’s mum is gone off … but I know by the way you speak of her, how proud you are of her … and there is no doubt in my mind, that she had the same feelings of you.
