If roses grew in Heaven, Lord, pick them and put them in my Momma's arms and tell her they're from me. Tell her that I love and miss her, and when she turns to smile, place a kiss upon her cheek and hold her for a while!! Happy Birthday Mom I will always love you.

Winter is here, Mom!
by: Grant, Lisa

Cooler weather is setting in and it's getting to be time for your delicious vegetable soup! That’s not to mention a hot cup of your fresh coffee that you would always on hand. Yes, you know your loving smile & hugs would be the best thing of all! Even better than your famous banana pudding that Timmy loved so much too. There is nothing like coming home to Mama's loving arms. No matter what time of year! No matter what kind of weather!

Thank your for your support

Thank you for your time and support. Losing my first love(mom) was very hard. There's not a day that don't go by that I am not feeling selfish and wishing she was here were I could talk or touch her.

We expected heart failure, copd, and a whole host of other conditions to be main culprite later on. Just poor nursing care and my stupid decision to allow her to go to "that" facility (while i recovered from a surgery and she was suppose to get some therapy)ended up being the game changer in her life. She could have stayed home and passed in her own time in the presence of her loved ones due to the preexisting conditions.

I feel like punching something, a wall or whatever everytime i think about it. which is often. The loss of my first love would have been enough to deal with, not to add to it negligence from nursing home, a unbelievable hospital incident, and a doctor who said this was his floor, as if he was "god" because he was over the intern doctors and every family member, and who tried to disregard my mothers last wishes.

My father passed of heart failure with no horrific incidents like this and i felt great loss. Cried for myself and my mothers loss. It was hard but the wall punching and anger just wasnt a factor. i cried, i questioned, i even felt angry at times but no where near the same type of sitation. His heart failed, it gave out and yes, it was a massive heart attack in which nobody expected. It happened so quick there was nothing my mother could do even though she tried cpr. But that is different than someone else contributing to the factor in major ways.

anyways, i guess thats just something i'll have to work throught or punch through til i make peace with it. i have not threw the first punch for some reason though. i do know that i visualize it, and catch myself, and its a fine line between that and its actions every time. im almost afraid one day that i will explode and it wont be purdy.

I'm always thinking about the shows my mom use to like & watch:

Old shows when i was younger..
Barney Miller,
Pink Panther,
The Twilight Zone,


and more. I'm just drawing a blank now that I wanted to put it in words. i dont know how but I wanted to create a link on facebook like a group or something where friends and family members could take a trip down memory lane and share the things that they could remember maybe some others really didnt realize.

maybe recalling shows, foods,songs, past times and etc of thing she loved, liked, disliked, and etc.

The final days of her life were really horrific to me with doctors involved and all so its very hard for me to think and miss alot of the good things. i get so full of anger at first thought the way we lost her, that it kinda robs me of thinking about the passion and love for her at first thought. not a day goes by that i dont wish i could just take care of her on last time.

To die of heart failure, copd, and other ailments that she had would have been enough to swallow. Rather than after being in nursing home for ONLY two weeks & then she is airflighted to hospital with Septic Shock due to pnuemonia. Really! Staph, Pneumonia, all are preventable conditions and have been around for generations and there are even current medicines for both.

your mother's birthday
by: Janelle

Hi Lisa,

Birthdays and other anniversaries can be sad times. I love the image of God picking roses to give to your mother from you in honor of her birthday. It is a beautiful prayer.

Do you do anything special to remember your mother on her birthday? A friend of mine (who is not a huge meat-eater) always eats a big, grilled steak on her dad's birthday because he loved steak.

Sometimes it is the simplest things that help us connect to our loved ones.

My thoughts are with you today. ((hugs))
