A Thoughtful Saturday...

Don't you think there are certain days when you just miss people? Friends, family, places that you left behind or that left you behind? We have had a grueling few weeks...when Den's dad died...memories of my mom and dad and his mom...just seemed to surface. Den talked to his dad a few times a week...one of the worst things about losing aging parents is that you no longer have them to call...there is no need for the check up check in call...so sad...

This is my remembering day...my dad...fisherman, gardener, animal lover...he would do anything to win over Lucy who always only wanted my mom...



My mom...gentle, sweet, funny, fussy...I can still remember how good the sheets in my room smelled...


Den's mom and dad...social, sweet, travelers. Den's mom was an amazing cook...his dad loved deals...the art of the deal was his thing.


The men...helping their dad when he needed them.


My dad...he always told me I was his first love...and he is mine forever.


Peace!

  1. Wonderful post. There are days I miss my mom like crazy... and my dad... and my sister. What I wouldn't give to have them for one more day at a dinner table just catching up of where I have been and what I have done these past too many years.

  3. I really miss talking on the phone with my mom. Toward the end, she couldn't hear well enough to do this any longer, and it was such a loss. She hated the hearing aid. Also...the scents of her kitchen and her smile.

    Thanks for sharing.

  4. Oh yes, I have days just like that. Carl's mother is not doing well right now and it's really making me think about my dad a lot.

    1. I think all it takes is one failing parent and you sort of feel the loss of all of them.

  7. Lovely post. I miss my husband's grandparents. I, of course. had grandparents but never knew them so they were the first set that I called my own. I miss going to their house for Sunday dinners.
