I woke up today thinking tomorrow is Mother's Day; this may be the last Mother's Day that my mom will know who I am. I realize that many of you know that feeling -- you are living it right now, and even though I've been reading your posts for the past few months, it really didn't hit me until today.
It's very difficult to lose a parent,and I know that feeling. My dad died when I was only 13, but that was final, he was gone. Now, looking at mom and seeing her confusionand the lost look in her eyes, hearing her questions daily, hourly and sometimes minute by minute just reinforces the inevitable...she is slowly leaving me and going into her own world, a world where I can't be with her...I am just so, so sad today...

Hi Mimi...

It's hard isn't it...
When I cared for my mom I'd wonder every mother's day, birthday and christmas if it were the last one I'd be spending with her...now that she's gone it seems to be these occasions that are so hard to get through...but the wonderful times spent with her throughout her life helps me now...
Memories are what will see you through the hard times..: )..doesn't matter what is said or how much sense there is...just being together is what counts...
take care...
