One thing that was certain about my mom… she loved to fish! Put her on any pond or by any lake, and she would have a smile on her face. I did love that. This photo was taken in San Angelo, we just decided to go back and do some fishing that day. I will definitely miss theses times, but here’s to memories. Much love mom.
This has been a year that I would like a do over with, but I can not. There have been hard times, good times, happy times, and times well, times that I cry, spending a wonderful year with my mom, before she died. Today does not seem like the last day of this year, and it definitely does not feel like a Saturday, but it is. Here I sit at my mom’s computer, which is now my computer, typing this out. I miss her so dearly, the tears come day after day. But life goes on, bills keep on keeping, and I have to move forward.
I just want this year to be done, and I want the new year to start, what plans do I have for the new year, well first off, I am going back to church. God has shown me that He is still on the throne. He has shown up and shown out for me, prayers do change things, even through all the hurt and pain that my family are going through, God is still in control, and he has us. The bills keep on piling up, but we are still able to pay them, still able to have enough, God is more than enough.
As I was going through mom’s note tablet, which is about to go to my sister, I found this… It is called “A Letter from Heaven”
When tomorrow stats without me,
and I’m not hear to see,
If the sun should rise and find your
eyes, filled with tears for me.
I wish so much you wouldn’t cry,
the way you did today,
While thinking of the many things,
we didn’t get to say.
I know how much you love me,
as much as I love you.
And each time you think of me,
I know you’ll miss me too.
When tomorrow starts without me,
don’t think we’re far apart.
for every time you think of me
I’m right there in your heart.
I don’t know who wrote this, but it was so beautiful, I cried while I was reading it. This sums up how I am feeling, for my mom. I know that we will meet again one day, but for now, I have to live my life here on this earth, and to the best of my ability.
May you rest in peace my sweet mom, we love you, and we will see you again. Your memory lives on in us, your family, in your daughters and sons, your grandkids, your friends. 2016 was a year that I want to forget, but it is also a year that brought us closer to one another, and I will always be grateful for that. 2017 is going to be an awesome year. I love you.
Looks like this road will finally be less traveled by both my mom and dad. The road between Austin and San Angelo. Today, me and mom traveled to San Angelo to finish up getting prescription’s for him. He is down here fully. And the good news is that he will start his new job in the morning . He will be working, for United moving. Yup, already on a job. It is all good. So this road will not be traveled often. There will still be times that they will go, but for now, these wheels are heading home to Austin Texas.
And on that note… It is a wrap folks, not just a season finale, but a series finale of Justified. I have heard, that the final episode, was the best ending. Now I don’t know but I do believe it had all the things people had come to love about this show. Yes, I have been a fan since the first time my mom popped that first dvd into the player and we sat and watched, I was hooked. From the action, to the well played lines between the characters. So very sad to see this show end, but all good things, must come to an end. One of my favorite quotes is from the lead character Raylin Givens, talking to one of the bad guys that just took his hat and put it on his head. Raylin says… ” Son, that’s a ten gallon hat, on a twenty gallon head ” I just about died laughing, and that is what this show was to me, laughs, tears, and thrills. Thank you Justified, for 6 years of quality episodes.
So with that being said, now I just have to go out and buy the last two seasons, and I will have all six for my collection. If you have not ever seen this show, I highly, highly, highly reccommend it to you, go out get the dvds, and watch it!
Yes, 2014 is coming to an end. It has been some year,some year indeed. A year of self discovery, joy and pain, tears, and laughter. Making new friends, and departing with ones who you thought were friends. Family time and friend time. New jobs , and new adventures. Strength beyond the weakness. Oh my, what a year this has been. Fear not sweet friends, and loyal readers; for this adventure and journey of my life continues on. 2015 is going to rock!
Many blessings, and a Happy new year y’all!
