A love letter to my Mom

Dear Reader,

Everything I have written about - the good, the bad and the ugly, my Mom has been there every step of the way.  I say thank you all the time.  But I really want to do more.  I want her to understand that I couldn't have made it without her.  She is there time and time again for the good, bad and ugly.  She always says yes to any help I need for either myself or my triplets.

This spring, while I was in the hospital 7 times and things got hairy and scary, she stood by me.  Even through her tears while witnessing some of the not so fun things, she stood by me.  The kids were in school and her husband has Alzheimers and is going down, she ran two households.  I could see in her face she was weary but she never gave up on me or my children or her husband.  Sure, some things did not get done but who cares - they are small and inconsequential. 

So Mom - please know from the bottom of the ocean to the top of the heavens, you are my rock, my best friend, and a wonderful Mom.  I love you so much - much more than words could ever express. 

Now I need to wipe away my tears.  More later -

  1. Thank you Kelly. It brought back many memories. You were so brave during those days of Emergency Rooms, not knowing what was wrong and what was going to happen to you......then the slow realization what was happening and finally the acceptance (ever so slowly....I'm still having problems with the acceptance). I'll never forget that as soon as your were admitted you wanted to be released....finally you surrendered....Very hard to do. I'm so glad your this for along. I just wish they could give you something to help you with the pain....and be able to eat.
