Missing Mom

Tomato & Basil Chicken I made last week! So so good! 

I want to tell my mom how Baby Max tried to use my long necklaces as a rope to climb up to a standing position on my lap last Sunday afternoon. 

I want Mom to know that right now it is a sunny and warm April day and I am listening to a waterfall in my own backyard!! My very own waterfall. 

I want to show Mom my writing desk in our study. She would totally love it.

I want my mom to see what an amazing daddy her grandson is. 

I want some of Mom's cinnamon rolls this morning.

I'd love to see Mom's surprise at how much I am cooking these days and that I am beginning to like it...a little bit.

I wish my mom could walk through my new house. I know she would point out the bad bits, but she would like it I think.  

I want to go back in time and call Mom more often. I probably wouldn't roll my eyes so much now.

I have questions that she probably could not answer. But it would be nice to ask them anyway. 

I want to tell her that I get it now. I understand some of her crazy-grandma antics. I would be a little less grumbly about them now. 

Even a grandma needs her mom sometimes.

  1. Awwwww, (((Hugs)))) to you my friend. I totally understand this missing Mom thing. I do that a lot too. Somehow I think she is already aware of these things...and she's reaching down and hugging you right now. I do wish she could send you some cinnamon rolls too...that may be one of those things you'll have to learn to make. That's what I've tried to do...when I'm missing my Mom I bake an apple pie or a coconut cream pie or some of her orange cookies...well, maybe not everytime I miss her...if that were true, we'd all be really fat. Sending you hugs and warm thoughts. I do understand.

  2. I did not think I needed to cry this morning but maybe I did. Thanks Sis.
    I just had a conversation with my future son in law about how much I wish he could have met her. I've been having some of the same thoughts as you.

    1. Hi David! The big moments in our lives remind us of who is not there to see it.

  3. yep, i get this. i have been having lots of those " i need to tell my mom" moments.
