    Sadly the first part of this thread was corrupted and is lost. I am hoping that Simon can get to and send me the data in the thread but I would like to reopen this.

    So many of you participated. My heart went out to each and every one. Some of you expressed how much they appreciated the opportunity to express their feelings. So here we are again.


    I wish I had a mom who could love me unconditioanlly

    Who I could call and just say HI

    To tell about my day and what I did

    To make plans with and just drop by.

    I wish I had a mom who loved me right or wrong

    To tell me secrets and my joys

    To share all sorrows and pain

    To share the ups and downs.

    I wish I could tell her that she was really great

    and always knew she was there

    I wish I could hug her

    And say I still do care.

    I wish the hurts of yesterday

    had never been at all

    I wish that she could love me

    Without her thick black walls.

    So mother if you think of me

    This coming holiday

    Please know I wish it was different

    We'd celebrate Mother's Day

    Sorry I missed out on the Part l....

    My Mom and Dad died 6 months apart in 2001. Wish they were here so I could give them a big hug and kiss and make up for all the Mother's Day and Father's Days that I missed out on. If there is an afterlife of somekind, I hope they are happy there together and forgive a brainwashed daughter for all the special moments that could have been.

    In 1978, my mum and dad died withing four months of each other. They never got to come to my wedding and, obviously, never saw my four children. I read the above poem and feel quite melancholy now. I'm a softie at heart. It's good to remember and I'd give anything to be able to hug them again.

    I cannot even imagine your loss and what this time of year might stir up in you. (((HUGS)))


    Lady Lee,

    You are an Angel to post this thread. My mom died four years ago next month...very suddenly. I miss her soooo much, especially at Mother's Day. And it doesn't help that my daughter is shunning me.

    Yesterday, I dropped a fresh bunch of red tulips off at my daughter's hotel where she works, along with my business card. She now has my personal card...from my last flower drop....and my business card. I hope and hope and hope that she will get in touch with me.

    Doing some crying this weekend... Don't even feel like dancin'...sheesh!!!
