ParentWish – PARENTS’ WISH

My Mother- My Friend

“Love is stronger then death even though it can’t stop death from happening, but no matter how hard death tries it can’t separate people from love. It can’t take away our memories either. In the end, life is stronger than death.”

Those who know me fairly well know that my mother and I were very close. In a previous post, I wrote about the mother and daughter bond. My Mother passed away December 2nd 2004, after her long battle with diabetes.

My mother was a fighter. I miss her. I only hope that I’m half the woman that she was.

Parent’s Wish is a touching four minute movie file. It is the message of all aging parents to their children. The song playing is, “You Raise Me Up” (by Josh Groban). Please be sure to have tissues nearby. The video made me cry.

A priest once said to me, “Old age is usually referred to as the golden years. I like to refer to them as the olden years, as there is no gold to be found in old age.” How right he was.

I can’t describe the pain that I still feel when I think about my Mother, but she certainly made me look at life and my role as a mother and wife differently. For that I’ll always be thankful.
