    Letter from a Mother to a Daughter: "My dear girl, the day you see I’m getting old, I ask you to please be patient, but most of all, try to understand what I’m going through. If when we talk, I repeat the same thing a thousand times, don’t interrupt to say: “You said the same thing a minute ago”… Just listen, please. Try to remember the times when you were little and I would read the same story night after night until you would fall asleep. When I don’t want to take a bath, don’t be mad and don’t embarrass me. Remember when I had to run after you making excuses and trying to get you to take a shower when you were just a girl? When you see how ignorant I am when it comes to new technology, give me the time to learn and don’t look at me that way… remember, honey, I patiently taught you how to do many things like eating appropriately, getting dressed, combing your hair and dealing with life’s issues every day… the day you see I’m getting old, I ask you to please be patient, but most of all, try to understand what I’m going through. If I occasionaly lose track of what we’re talking about, give me the time to remember, and if I can’t, don’t be nervous, impatient or arrogant. Just know in your heart that the most important thing for me is to be with you. And when my old, tired legs don’t let me move as quickly as before, give me your hand the same way that I offered mine to you when you first walked. When those days come, don’t feel sad… just be with me, and understand me while I get to the end of my life with love. I’ll cherish and thank you for the gift of time and joy we shared. With a big smile and the huge love I’ve always had for you, I just want to say, I love you… my darling daughter."

      I miss my mom too. She is in a care home with dementia and doesn't know who any of us are; I wish I could go back and tell her I love her one more time, and see that look in her eyes that tells me she understands. So many missed many regrets of not telling her more often that I love her, not trying to understand her when I was younger and thought I had so much time. You never know what life will bring - treasure your family while they are here with you. I love you mom.

    Life Lesson:2 the truth about crying

    Don't give up!


    The moment that you left me, my heart was split in two; one side was filled with memories; the other side died with you. I often lay awake at night when the world is fast asleep; and take a walk down memory lane with tears upon my cheek. Remembering you is easy, I do it every day; but missing you is a heartache that never goes away. I hold you tightly within my heart and there you will remain; you see life has gone on without you, but will never be the same.

    Good and evil

    :) SO TRUE


    Be careful with your words

    remember the best

    God has a reason for allowing things to happen. We may never understand His wisdom, but we simply have to trust His will.

    Don't ever mistake my silence for ignorance, my calmness for acceptance, or my kindness for weakness.

    forever has no meaning when you're living in the moment.

    I love my cousins =D

    Forgive often and love with all your heart
