I hope I make you proud......

I don't know why, but I thought maybe tomorrow would get easier for me. I guess I was wrong.

I hope I make you proud......

Being raised by a woman who seemed to go out of her way to make sure that I was always taken care of, and that I always knew what was wrong and what was right. That taught me to cherish everyday like it was the last. I am mom, I promise!!! I am who I am because of you. I owe you, and thank you so much.

I hope I make you proud......

I can't put into words what you mean to me. Even though you are not on this earth with me, I know you are with me. It is so amazing to me. All kinds of people tell me that I am such an inspiration to them. That I am the positive person that the lean on when times are hard. That I make so much sense and help them by talking. I love to do that......I got that from you.

I hope I make you proud....

You showed me that it is not all about what you have, but what you can offer to others. That your wealth is derived from the serving for the benefit of other people. As I remember you this weekend, and especially tomorrow, I am humbled by the man that I have become because of you! I hope I make you proud!

Because when I hear others talk about you and others wish they had the chance to meet you...I am SO proud of you!

 I love you and miss you more than you will ever know! RIP mom!

Anthony,

Thank you for responding.  This is one of those things where it just hit me and I wanted to get it out there.  Our mom's are amazing, I hope that they do not ever think that what they have sacrificed for us, is ever taken for granted.  I hope you have an amazing day

Brandon, Terrific post and very eloquently put. Mother and Grandmothers have so much influence on us. While my mother is still with us, she lives 2500 miles from me and I don't call her as much as I should. Thank you for driving the point home to appreciate what we have when it is here and honor it when it isn't.

Ron,

Thank you so much for your kind words.  I appreciate it.  Please pick up the phone and call just to say hi.  I now wish I could call me mom every day.  Have a great day!

Wayne and Jean,

I apreciate that.  I believe that she is, and I try to live my life for the better.  What she taught me.  Thank you

What a touching Mother's Day post - I have not lost my mother yet, but I have lost my grandmother and she and I were very close.  Your words are beautiful.  Thank you.

Hi Brandon,

Having already lost my mom too, these words were especially touching to me.

I had similar thoughts about my mother today as well, Brandon.  My dad died in 1966, and my mother in 1975, before I became a Realtor in 1981, and long before the internet and so many changes we see in the world today.  I tried to imagine what it would have been like to have had Mom return just for a few hours at breakfast this morning, and to be able to tell her, of my 30 years in real estate, as well as a stint of several years working for a software development company.  I doubt she would have understood much of it, because of the technology absent at the time of her death.  But, I hope she would be proud anyway!

Joy,

Thank you so much.  That means a lot.  I was just writing yesterday and that is what came out.  Thank you for your kind words

Kevin,

I am so glad that any of my words gave you something.  I am not a writer, but these words came from my core, and I assume that is why you feel similar emotions.  Thank you for that.  Humbling

Mike,

It is in some strange way that when you loose one of your parents, you become a part of some kind of fraternity.  Not saying that it is a good place, but when others that have not been through that give well wishes, which are great, they do not truly understand.  My thoughts are with you.  take Care,

Myrl,

Thank you for your thoughts.  I too wonder what it would be like to have just a little time with her, to discuss how my life is shaping up.  I know that she is proud of you.  Especially if she has been watching the world of which we live in (real estate wise).  The fact that you are still here, and ethical and moral,......she is proud

 

Erica,

Thank you for that.  She was an amazing woman.  Some would call her different or of another mind set.  I believe she was way ahead of her time.  There is a MAJOR paradigm shift in mindset going on right now, and her metaphysical and holistic thought process, is no longer out of left field.  So, funny, I didn't even realize it was featured.  Thanks again.  Take Care,

Hey Brandon, very nice post.  My mom has passed on too. I think I was afraid to think about her too much today for fear of getting too emotional, but your post has made me stop and take the time to remember her and all the good times we shared.  Thank you for that.

Kevin,

Thank you!  The fact that you took that step and remembered your mom, is huge for me.  I am so thankful that it allowed you to do that.  When I wrote this, there was no intended purpose other than to just speak from my core.  I hope you had a great day!

Donald,

I did.  Spent time with thoughts about my mom, got my boys off to their mom, so they could have the day with her, and I did laundry and other domestic things....:)  Was a hoot!  Not really, but a necessity.  I hope you are well.  Take Care,
