Sad on Mothers Day
by Judith in California
It was Mother's day 2006 my husband had a TIA when we were out at a nice restaurant . He always made sure I had a nice day. We would dress up and go out. My handsome man as always. He knew my son always waited until the last minute to call me because he felt he shouldn't have to tell me happy mother's day on a designated day, blah, blah, blah. Anyway while we were out my husband had this weird grayish look and then began sweating and lost his focus so we had to leave the restaurant and go home . He was fine then and told me not to worry because I was crying , so afraid he was going to die.
We got home and he rested. That was the last Mother's day he was to take me out.
On May 10th 2007 he fell due to his Parkinson's and fractured his skull and in September of 2010 he passed away. So he will never be here to make sure I had a nice Mother's day. My son hasn't called me yet and it's 11:18 a.m.
I'm sad and missing my husband.
If I could tell couples anything it would be to love and care for one another fiercely and daily. Never argue over the same old things. If you can't resolve it let it go. Ask each other is it so important that if one of you died would it matter? Live each day knowing you have no regrets of saying or doing something that hurt each other. AND if you do , then learn to say I'm sorry before it's too damn late. Bring God into your lives lives and live by his expectations.
