If You Can, Call Your Mother Tonight and Here’s Why


My mother died January 4, 2016. That’s it. Even though I had her around for close to 65 years, she’s gone. And yes we could get on each others nerves and I often thought that she should filter what she said and patience was not her virtue. There’s a but here. But she sat up with me when I had the measles and entertained me when I had the mumps and was there before and after they took my tonsils out. Oh and she was at every corny school program, stood up to a particular Nun who had very low expectations of her students, helped me buy my first car, agreed to be on the mortgage of my first house and did all she could for my son her only grand kid.

And now she’s gone. No more conversations or getting her slant on the news and politics or the benefit of her very great instincts about people.

So stuck it up and call your Mom because one day she’ll be gone.

  2. I’m sorry for your loss. No one can replace your mom. I remember thinking when my mom died that no one would ever love me quite the way she did……a mother’s love can’t be replaced and it is forever. Hoping that you feel her presence even though she is gone from the physical…
