Mother's Day

Barney thought this was worth mentioning said

Last year on Mother’s Day, my mom had a stroke. We knew she only had a short time to live.

The nursing home gave me the room across from hers to use. They made Lady a bed by Mom’s bed.

A few days later, she was gone.

I was numb during most of this. In my mind I knew that this was going to happen; she had had several strokes previously. But in my heart, I wasn’t ready to let her go. And letting go of someone we love so much, is very hard to do.

Where I was numb last year on Mother’s Day, this year I’m hurting.

I know many of you here on this forum, have lost your mom. I just want to say,

I know…

For those of you who still have your mom, give her an extra hug and tell her how much she means to you.
