Autumn Changes



Last week I celebrated my birthday 
and had a fun evening with 
my family... we all met at little pizza place. 
We chatted and enjoyed
each other... the little ones moved here and there
 from one person to the next.
I couldn't have enjoyed it more.
 For a moment I just watched and took it
all in and thought about how grateful I was for my family.

The next morning I got a phone call that my mom had passed.

I always start the month with my birthday... and she ends the month with hers.
I am grateful that she held on one more day.


She will be missed by so many but I know she has been wanting to go home
and didn't have any more fight left in her. 

As a child, she always made me have Halloween themed birthday parties!
I hated that! (smile)

My sympathies to you and your family Sinta. Losing Mom is a tough thing. I lost mine just three years ago and we thought life just couldnt go on without her and yet here we are 3 years later muddling through. Memories are a wonderful thing. They help keep loved ones close. Loved your little memory of yours.

Susan said...

Sinta, sorry I'm so far behind reading my fav blogs. I'm so sorry to hear of your Mom passing. My Mom has been living for 8 years with Alzheimers - if you call that living. It's sad, but we know it's God's call. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

Barb Gibney said...

Ahhh Sinta...sorry im a bit late in responding to this post. My deepest sympathy, I too lost my mom almost three years ago and was so sure I wouldnt be able to face the coming days without her. But oh the memories, im so very thankful for them. They really do help to ease the pain. I like tbe little memory you shared about your bday party. I bet it brings a little snicker and smile to your face everytime you think of it....enjoy those precious memories. Hugs, Barb
