Happy Birthday Mom

Happy Birthday Mom

Today, you would have been 80 years old. I can't tell you how much I miss you. I still have my last mental image of you, sitting in your wheelchair in the nursing home. You were the one who was so sick, yet it was you who was consoling me.

Seven years have passed but it doesn't get any easier. I think of you every single day and wonder why there still isn't a cure for the despicable disease that took you from me. A good friend of mine just lost her mother to cancer yesterday. Why, oh why, can't we stop it?

On this day, the day that will always have a special place in my heart, I think of you and how I wish I could have you back. I know, I know, you always told me that life seems as though it's not fair. Well, it isn't.

Happy Birthday Mom, I love you and miss you so much.

It is tough to watch a parent die.  My mother died of lung cancer almost 4 years ago.  She never smoked and it was a hideous way to go.  It took 2 years and she bore it with grace.  She had amazing free hospice care in South Wales.  I admire what you are doing.  I saw how close some of the care givers got to my mother and it is an incredibly difficult job.

Kerry - I've written about three blogs about my Hospice experiences ... they are really tough to write about because my "patients" have been family and friends.

Roger - thank you for your kind words. I'll go find you post about your father, I missed it.

Ken - the birthdays are the toughest for me.

Tammy - thank you, she was a pretty woman with red hair ... I don't work with Hospice any longer, my care giving is for friends and family.

Jane - care giving is exhausting but so rewarding ... and yes, it is hard to not get close to those you are caring for.

Paul - ouch, that was quite recent ... losing the person who gave birth to me was a surreal experience, almost uncomprehensible. It definitely brings mortality to the forefront.

Cynthia - I'm so sorry for the loss of your dear mother.  It sounds like you do have some wonderful memories of her though and that is wonderful on days like this.
