MOM 3-9-33 to 9-5-00

Hello family, fellow bloggers and friends:  It’s that time again to wish my Mom Happy Birthday today would have been 83 years young.  She didn’t get to watch her oldest great grandson turn 18 nor will she been at her oldest great granddaughter graduation in May of the year.  She has been missing a lot since she has been gone but no matter what we still all think about her a lot and still miss and love her every day.

I have a habit of wondering what it would be like to still have her with us and enjoying the company of her but then I remember that she was in lots of pain before she had to leave us and I wouldn’t want her in pain plus I know I’m being selfish by wanting her to be here.  She is up in heaven with my Grandma, Nana, and all the others who have gone on before and after her so I know that she is surrounded by family and her friends who have gone too.

Mom I hope you have a great birthday today and I will be seeing you soon.  I love you and miss you every day.  Everyone is doing okay and missing you too.  Mark is still at the paper however you always said if he retired the paper would fall apart I’m starting to think you might be right on that score.  Well Mom that is all for now take care and thanks for everything.

Happy Birthday Nick

Happy Birthday Nick today is your 18th birthday and you are a man today.  I am so happy for you and very proud of you also.  Life is rough and you have had your fair share of rough but you have a your share of good too.  Something have been beyond my control but I want you to know through it all that no matter what was said when your Mom was pregnant with you I have loved you through all of it.  We all make mistakes and if we didn’t then God would not have sent his son to die that we could be forgiven for them.    I’m sure in life your other Grandma has said things when she has been mad that she hasn’t them count against her.  Just saying not causing issues.  I hope you have a great day and if you want to see me today I’m living with your Great Uncle Mark right off the freeway.  I love you and want nothing more than you to be happy in your life.
