Have you ever......

Have you ever lost a parent?

Have you ever wished that the one that was gone was still here?

What about wondering if the one that was still here....wasn't?

How would things be different?

....I still miss her. Crazy- certifiably crazy-as she was....she kept Christmas together.

She had her problems...ones that I've seemed to inherited...but family was where it was at for her.

And for me.

Yep, my dad died when I was 12 in 1979. And my mom died in 2000. She didn't do well without him!

Christmas can be the hardest time, I think.

Thinking of you!!

I lost my dad in 2011... I wrote about his illness and death, and grieving on my blog. it felt like there was a vice grip on my heart and I couldn't breathe.
