Happy Valentine's Day!!
This image was taken from a card that my daughter made me, I love those homemade cards:)
Well today is the last day of Cindi's Whole Lotta Love...
thank you Cindi, it was a whole lotta fun!
I really enjoyed reading everyone's posts.
Today my whole lotta love is for my family...my mother, father and siblings...
but especially my mother.
My mother passed away on August 29th, 2010 from cancer and not
a day goes by that I don't think of her.
It still feels like yesterday and it was one of the hardest losses
I have ever had to deal with.
I still to this day think I can pick up the phone and give her a call.
She was never judgmental and always knew just what to say,
and if she didn't know what to say
she would just listen. She was kind, generous and very giving.
She was one of the most wonderful people I ever knew,
in fact everyone called her a saint.
Here is a picture of my family Before I even came along.
(We always say that I am that blob floating in the right corner of the picture:)
As you can see I am the youngest of 5.
We all live far apart from one another, but always make it a point to keep in touch.
We are all grown up with our own children now.
My oldest brother has Down Syndrome and recently was placed into assisted living.
It was getting too difficult for my dad at his age to take care of him properly.
We all usually go home on the 4th of July to meet up but my husband and I
haven't been able to make it in the past couple of years.
Hopefully we can save up this year and possibly make the trip:)
I know we all would enjoy it, I miss them terribly!
Well that's the end of my whole lotta love.
There are so many more things that I adore but I think I've managed
to say the ones that are at the top of my list!
Have a wonderful Valentine's Day...
and remember to always spread peace, love and joy:)
