I'll Talk To You Tomorrow...

I am of few words today.  Forgive me.

Today would have been my Mom's 66th birthday.  I'm a little peeved that she's not here for me to give her hell about that! <- Sometimes you have to find the humor in things in order to chase away the tears.

We saw each other every single day.  The last words we spoke each day were simply "I'll talk to you tomorrow."  They were the last words I left her with the day before....when her tomorrow never came.  I didn't let that little detail stop me.  They were the last words I spoke to her at her funeral.  They are the last words I tell her now...still every day.  She hated goodbyes.  Loathed them...and it's something that we NEVER told each other.  How lucky am I to have known someone who was so hard to say goodbye to?

2445 days is a long time. That's 6 years, 8 months, and 10 days without her.  I thought I was an adult.  A big wrong I was!

  1. Beautiful post, and wonderful memories of an amazing mom.

  2. i feel your pain... and share your feelings... hope tomorrow is better for you.


  3. Hugs to you Tania! Your mom is so beautiful. I am glad you had so many wonderful moments with her which make for wonderful memories that will stay with you forever.

  4. I feel your loss. This Wednesday it will be 20 years ago that my mom left us way too soon. Not only did I think the sun rose and set in her, so did my daughters, which gives me such comfort. But when ever I hear "wind Beneath My Wings" by Bette Midler, a tear still rolls down my cheek. Bless you.

  5. My father passed, from cancer, 7 years ago, and I FINALLY got my mother to move in with me a year and a half ago. This is a beautiful post, and I am so sorry for your loss.
