27 Years Without Mom

My mom, passed away on April 3, 1991 (27 years ago). She was killed in a nearly head-on automobile accident, five miles from home. It is hard to believe she has been gone for 27 years. I have been motherless for over half of my life...and that beyond sucks. :(

Mom and I did not get along very well as I was growing up. I wish I had listened to some of her advice at the time she offered it to me. But I thought I was right and that she was just trying to run my life. I know better now. I miss her and love her very much.

The following, beautiful poem was written for me in May 2007 by a sweet friend, Debi Fisher.

FOREVER MOTHER

I think as little girls
We are all born to be a Mother
The same as all the rest
Yet different from one another
We cuddle dolls and puppies
We fix boo boos and small aches
We have this built in nurse
And do whatever it takes
We all have our little quirks
But the love I remember best
Mom wasn’t there all the time
But when she was it was filled with zest
She’s take me to the beauty parlor
Her hair done , I’d get nails
Being with her , in her special place
Put the wind right into my sails
So now I’m grown and have kids
Two of my own grown and finding their way
I reflect back to the time
When I shared that same kind of day
Once a little girl
And now I am another
I’ll never forget , and my memories I’ll keep
Of my forever Mother
