To My Wonderful Mom


Hi Mom... I just want you and the world wide web to know how much I love you. I have joined this 29 day giving challenge and if nothing else...it makes me think. But you know what? I am generally a giving person. I think that is because I grew up watching a woman who always was giving, giving, giving of herself to others in need. For those of you who may be reading this and so not know us... I had a terrible accident in March of this year. It was my mother who stood by my bedside, MADE ME EAT, lifted my legs to help me in and out of bed (I had 4 fractured lower lumbar)... covered me over with covers, answered my beckons from the bed... made sure I got up and tried desperately to prevent me from not getting too deeplt in to a depression. It was my mother whose face I wanted to see when I was at a very low point one day... and by golly..she drove clear over her and her at my home is where she and her husband, Cliff stayed for 6 weeks.

She nursed me and loved me... even when I was "unloveable" and stubborn, and being a brat.

She loved me through all of it... she drove me back and forth to the hospital and sat by my side.

She wiped my tears, made me face my fears and was my rock. For that and so many other reasons... my mother has been my "rock". Sometimes it takes a long time to realize that. Heres to you , Mom. I hope you like the picture. I love you.

Michael Joseph 1979-2004


WORDS THAT I FEEL... MEMORIES THAT WE SHARED...

My precious son...

I gaze over at a picture of your face so perfect and bright...
I see into those eyes and see to the depths of your soul.

Your smile was that of a movie star... so bright and shining...
the way that you would laugh with that giggle... as your eyes would close as you laughed.

Your life, a bright flickering flame, was blown out 4 years ago,
Why? I'll never know.

I treasure your memory... I loved you with all that I am
I miss your hugs that were so strong and protection all abound
You loved me as much as I loved you.

The dash between your years on earth ... 1979-2004
tells a great story of a wonderful baby, child then man... a story that I adore

You left too soon... and my heart string pull real tight
as I often lay in bed and think of you at night.

I miss you... I love you... You left too soon.
I love that I got to be a part of your "dash"
And I am grateful that I can still close my eyes and see you in flash.
