Remember Me

| 2 Comments

Today is the 10 year anniversary of my mother’s death and I find myself having dual emotions. I feel an aching in my heart because I miss her so much, yet my heart is full of love for my family and friends. I think this year is harder as it’s the first time my house has been empty. My youngest,  Brian if off to college and my oldest, Brianna is teaching college. ( talk about duality) My husband and I have never lived alone and we are truly enjoying our time together, yet both of us miss our kids. I find myself feeling sad and happy at the same time.

Today I am remembering my mother and feeling so much gratitude for all of the memories I have of her.

I remember when:

  •  You would laugh until you cried
  •  Your generosity
  • Your love for Pepsi and Lays potato chips
  • Your smile
  • Turning the music up and dancing
  • How much you loved to watch football ( Go Buffalo Bills!)
  • How much you loved Christmastime
  • How proud you were of your grandchildren
  • When I would hold your hand at the doctors
  • How you trusted me to help you with your medical care
  • How you never complained, no matter how much pain you were having
  • How you collected coins, dolls, & new dollar bills
  • Your love for shopping and a good sale
  • Our traditional Black Friday shopping- even in your wheel chair- and especially our last one where you able to walk again
  • Your love for Elvis Presley
  • The last time I told you I loved you

 

 “Love me Tender”, By Elvis Presley

Love me tender,
Love me sweet,
Never let me go.
You have made my life complete,
And I love you so.

Love me tender,
Love me true,
All my dreams fulfill
For my darlin I love you,
And I always will.

Love me tender,
Love me long,
Take me to your heart.
For it’s there that I belong,
And well never part.

Love me tender,
Love me true,
All my dreams fulfill
For my darlin I love you,
And I always will.

Love me tender,
Love me dear,
Tell me you are mine.
Ill be yours through all the years,
Till the end of time.

Love me tender,
Love me true,
All my dreams fulfill.
For my darlin I love you,
And I always will.
