My Boo-Who Day

Today I'm having a very bad day. 14yrs ago today I lost Mom to cancer. I still remember what I was doing when I got the word she was gone. We were having trouble with our phone,could call out, but couldn't receive. I was in the bathroom getting ready for work 4:45am and there came a knock on my door it was my Sister. Our wonderful Mom was gone. We lost our Dad just 5 yrs before. My sister and I laugh about this now. Why you ask, because when she came to my door that day we were wearing the same Sweat shirt.We both worked at the same daycare and one of the Mothers had made them for us. That's not were it ended. The next day when we went to the funeral home to make arrangements we both had on the same Sweater (just different color) that Mom had gotten us. I remember all this like it happened yesterday. How cold it was at the grave site,much like today. Only today I can't go to her grave like I do every year.We got a lot of ICE here,all the Churches are closed today.By noon we're to have about 1 to3 inches of snow on top this mess. I miss my Mom so much,she was my best friend. We did everything together.(She even went on mine and Mike's honeymoon) That's another funny story. We were even told we looked like Sisters. Now I have to see my Ginny going through what my Mom went through. Went to see Ginny Thur. It's not good. Ginny was always up going. Worked hard all her life.Never saw her set much.Now she flat on her back. It was hard not to cry while I was there,but I made it until I got out to the truck. It's H___ to be the older generation.Mike's asleep(worked last night),can't go any place and I feel so alone at this moment. Guess I'm just having a pity party for myself. Guessed I just need a {{Hugs}}.

Guess I'd just better suck it up and go on. Got that Surprise B-day party Tues. and the Pageant is next Saturday.Also got to get a bag packed for Mike and I. The B-day party is two hrs. away so we decided to stay over night.

Hope everyone has a great day and a better Tomorrow........I know I will. Thanks for letting me vent.

Love and God bless,

Hey Glo, I'm so sorry you're having a rough day! I can't imagine what it must be like having lost your mom, but remember she's in a much better place, and she's no longer in pain! I'm sure that it still hurts, just keep your chin up and remember the good times you had together!

I hope you and Mike have a safe and fun trip to the B-Day party! Love you guys!!
