No matter what, there was love. No matter the situation, there was love. It was truly till death do they part. It has been a year now yesterday. It still hurts like the beginning. I cried so much, but life, life moves forward; whether you cry or not.
This has been quite the year… the struggle is real, but my God is more real, and I know that He watches over me, and my family.
One more week left in this journey, it has been a long task, but one I can see my healing beginning. It will take a bit, I just needed a start. I love you mom.
Granted she was not always the best to get along with, she was an amazing woman. I loved her regardless of things that was hard. And she loved us. She was strong in heart and spirit, and she stood up for what was right. May you have eternal peace mom. You were and still are loved by many.
Walks along the dam of life. One of the best places we walked, but also one of which you had to be careful, due to snakes and other critters and wild life. These were fun times. Miss you mom.
Me, mom,sister,nephew… that was a good day. It was taken at my apartment, I believe that it was before they moved down. It was just a visit. Memories sweet. I love you mom.
My mom was one of the strongest women I have ever known. She fought her way through two heart attacks, and other ailments. She had scarlet fever when she was a child, made it through that. She was a stone cold fighter, and I loved her for it.
To you mom, may you have your flowers up in heaven.
She loved culture, so when she moved here I was finally able to take her to The Blanton Art Museum. She loved it. The plan was to take her to more art museums, but that was not the case. I am just happy that she got to experience the one here with me. I thank God for that. I love you mom.
In her element! Mom taught us a love for fishing, well a strong like anyway. Fishing was fun, just go out and sit snd throw your line out there. We have had many fun time doing just that, as well as shooting the shit. Long talks, special times, fun times. Made at a fishing hole. This was Lake Marble Falls, in marble falls texas. Sweet, sweet memories. I love you mom.
Just another trip of many to the Capitol, she loved the Capitol, as did I. We have pretty much the same styles of what we like and this was one of them. That day we ate at the Capitil Grille that is at the capitol. The food was good, we spent time walking down congress street and just enjoying the beautiful, sun filled day. Me and mom. I love you mom, I will miss those times spent, but will never regret them.
A photo taken at the water lilly garden in San Angelo. The last time we would visit there together. It was fun, and quality time was spent mother and daughter style. Her and I were a lot alike, when it came to adventure, museums, botanical gardens. We just vibed that way. I truly miss things like that. I love how she is looking into the distance. Pondering some far away thoughts… or maybe thinking, it’s time to head back to Austin. Much love mom.
To my apartment, me and the little girl. She sniffed, slinked, and scurried around the place. Meowing loudly, finally getting familiar with things. She loves the new cat tree, got a real bargin at pet smart. What I thought was 99 bucks, was on sale for 69 dollars. Oh believe me, I spent money last night, between the cat and some food for myself, I almost wept, but it was necessary.
I now really look forward to coming home after a long days or nights work to see my kittie girl. Now that she is mine and my responsibility. Anyways, there are great responsibilities as a adult I have to do Monday, one of which, need to update my resume. I am trying to stick with this job, for at least a year, not sure that will happen, as so much nonsense is going on there. So that is that.
Last weekend, went to the free day at Zilker, went to the botanical garden. Invited nephwe and sister who have never been, it was great fun. Photos below.
Welp, until the next adventure, keep it fun.
