I also never paid gratitude to  my mom for what all she did for me. Took her for granted. I wish I could go back in time and pay thanks to my mother but unfortunately this will not happen.

That’s exactly right Brett
I see my mom in me every day and I’m proud of that. my mother worked hard every day of her life so that I would have a good life and I never got to thank her
The best I can do is let her look down and be proud of the daughter she raised

Thank You!! That choked me up a little bit. My mom and I were a matched set though. It's hard to imagine one without the other. I still can't imagine it.

Brett, you are your mother's gift to the world.

Virginia, I get up every day because I am my mother's son. I am fighting to be well for her and for myself. My mom lives on through me. I can hear it in my voice and see it in my mannerisms. my mom struggled mightily for the last several years of her life, but she kept fighting for her life. She didn't give up. I will do the same.

Virginia, we are all suffering if we were not we would not be human, at times our cross is very heavy, but you have to remember God is always beside you.

Your mom needs to know you will be alright so she can rest in peace, believe me, my mother and I had a very strong bond afterall she had me at 42, she was all I had and I was all she had. 

My situation is a bit different my mom was gone in a blink of an eye, no warning, nothing, no illness, not one thing, it was like someone hit me with a bat in the face, I didn't get to say I love you mom.....

I took me three years and my faith to say ok God does everything for a reason, I miss her every single day of my life and I know that will not change ever, but please try to have faith and tell God you love her and ask him to please give you strength.  And tell your mom you love her and you will see her again one day after you have lived your life like she did.  My mom used to say just in conversation "honey I lived my life, you have to live yours".

:)

Virginia, sorry if my words touched you. I just wanted to say that we may have few reasons more than others to live. 

Comment by Virginia G on November 21, 2018 at 1:29am

Avi, You can’t say one person is suffering more than another.  Everyone is different and you don’t know what’s in their heart.

Brett, if you don’t have joy what makes you get up everyday?
