She's dancing in heaven with Daddy now.


I lost my beautiful Mom yesterday.

She is finally with my Dad again, and my sister, and her parents and sister and friends who went before her, and I cannot be sad for that.

But not ever seeing her sweet little smile, or hearing her call me her baby....well that makes my heart hurt.

I love you Mom. You were an amazing mother to me, and I learned all I know about being a mom from you. Thank you for loving me like you did.

I will miss you every day of my life.

Julie,
May you find comfort in knowing others understand and sorry for your loss. Now you have to rely on the good memories,and that you had her a long time. We only have one mother. I lost mine much too soon. She was only 54.

Julie,

So sorry for your loss! She has given you many memories and much wisdom that you will now share and carry with you forever. Whenever you need her or want to be close with her you will reach in and pull out one of those memories or lessons that she left you and move forward in life with a warm smile knowing that she is still right there for you anytime you need her. They never leave us! No love like a parents love! Everlasting!!!

Take care my friend!

It is a relief to know our loved ones are with their family and friends enjoying the rewards of a well lived life. We will get to see them again one day...at least y'all will. I'm stocking up on asbestos underwear.

Beau's Mom said...

You know - without me telling you, that I feel sadness for you. I've been there.

But look at that photo dear friend. With your son, you at the top center, and your darling on your other side, you were forming a PERFECT triangle above your mom. She was encircled by the love!!

Noofy said...

Julie, I too know the pain you feel. Keep your memories of your Mom close, she is with you always. This helped me at my times of loss. I hope it helps you too.

Do Not Stand at my Grave and Weep

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.

Julie, I'm sending big heart hugs your way. It's never easy losing a parent, no matter how old they are....i lost my dad almost 9 years ago and still miss him terribly. You will miss the physical aspects of her - hearing her voice, seeing her, etc. but she will forever be in your heart.

Becky said...

Julie, I am so sorry to hear about your mom's passing. The love you have for her is so beautiful. I pray for peace and comfort for you in the days ahead.

Julie,

Sorry for your loss, I lost my dad a few years back. It's never easy. Take care of yourself and know that you're surrounded by love.

I am so sorry for the pain you feel. I lost my mom almost 30 years ago and I still miss her and think of her often. But I know she's with my dad now and not lonely....just like you know it with your mom. Big hugs.

Cape Cod Kitty said...

So very sorry to hear about your mother's passing. There is no way to prepare for the loss of a parent. Take good care of yourself and feel the feelings....they will morph into so many forms during the next few years. It is an interesting journey.
Comfort and peace to you!

tana said...

I am so sorry. I know that you will miss her.

STILLMAGNOLIA said...

I am so sorry. I did not realize how similar we were....my mom died in April....she joined my dad, my brother, her sister, parents...etc. Amazing how parallel our lives have been. Will be praying for you and your family.

Hi Julie! I see your comments on Lincee's site. I am sorry to hear of the loss of your Mother. Your Mom was blessed to have a daughter and family look after her so well. As someone who is also caring for her mom, I send you all big hugs and support at this difficult time. LeolaK (saggleo on ihategreenbeans).

Ah, Julie.

Hugs, darling.

Danica said...

You know I love you guys and I'm here for you. I'm sorry you have to go through this, but I'm grateful you have such amazing friends and family to help you through this difficult time. Blessings.

You are a fortunate woman to feel so much love for your mother and to have had it returned!! Again, I tell you all is perfect, always has been, and always will be. Love you.....see you soon.

Julie said...

Thank you everyone.

Fragrant Liar said...

Hey, Julie, sorry I haven't been by sooner, but I'm here now, and I'm so sorry for your loss. I always hope the good memories of people I've loved and lost will sustain me for the rest of my days, and I have to think believe will for you too.

All my best and biggest hugs,
Kimber

Julie...I don't have the words. I feel terrible that I am only reading this now. I actually thought about not writing anything...I did not want to hurt you by having you read this comment, because all your later posts seem like you are stronger but I know it's still important to let you know a few things.
First off you are so dear to me...I know I don't comment often but you are on my mind a lot...especially over the last few weeks you have been on my mind. I should have checked your blog sooner...
I don't pretend to comfort you or take away your pain or explain things away...I just beleive that things work out in a certain way at a certain time for a certain reason. It has been hard to accept that beleif in my own life, but more and more it makes sense to me. I hope it brings you some peace.
I send you a great big hug and will hold you in my thoughts.
She made it home Julie...at last.
