Storms Likely

The sky matches my mood this evening.

Cloudy with patches of blue.

Intermittent showers possible.

In the words of Ms. Fabulous

through violently gritted teeth........

I HATE this!

I miss her, I miss her, I miss her.

I didn't have enough time.

Forty seven years, eleven months

and sixteen days

were not enough.

So afraid for her to suffer,

I prayed for mercy.

For my compassionate God

to welcome her soon.

He did.

And I am grateful.

But I am still

a child without her mother.

And it hurts.

So much.

Just sayin'....................


  1. I love the pictures of her from this day!

  2. Oh I'm so sorry.... It has been since 1990 when I lost my mother. I STILL have days when I cry, but they are fewer and farther between. You just have to concentrate on the years God did give you together. Your missing her shows just how much you loved her....

    Love you girl.

  3. I do too, Jordie! My favorite one is the one of her standing under the tree holding her purse. She was such a cutie!

  4. I do fine most of the time , Donna. Some days are just harder than others...but, then I know you know that. Thanks for understanding.
