I'm currently writing my blog from my cottage in the Drakensberg, Champagne Valley, Kwa-Zulu Natal; South Africa
Today marks the 20th anniversary of my Mum, Daphne's death. I am glad that while she was my earthly mother, especially after she'd been widowed, that I showed her the love and respect she deserved.
My dear mum's passing is coming up to 19 years soon, she too was widowed for many years. Like you, I loved and respected her so much, and still miss her terribly. Even though I moved to the US when still young (19), I always made the effort to get home to England - or paid for her to come here to visit - so we saw each other most years. I have boxes of our letters, and memories of those so expensive phone calls back and forth across the ocean! Managed to arrive home in the UK to see her for a few hours before she died - they say she waited for me.Wishing your good memories always stay with you too Jo.
That is a very important (and no doubt comforting) memory to have.
Yes, Jo. Showing love & respect to our parents is the only legacy we can leave that has true value. " Honour Thy father & mother " ...lots of love..xxx
We don't stop missing our mothers. Especially on significant days.
So wise to lavish loving attention on your mom instead of after she is gone gone wishing you had done so. May you have precious memories.
my mother has been in heaven for 33 years, and I was just saying to Bob before I came here, i wish i could show this video to her. she never saw any of the wonders we have now
You were fortunate.
Thanks for sharing the blog so well and I hope you have something new for me to study.ចាល់បាល់អន់ឡាញ់
