So much has happened since the last time I posted. On November 4th my mom passed away. Though she has had problems with her heart this was unexpected. I'm still trying to come to terms with the whole thing. I miss her terribly. She was only 68 years young. This might be selfish but I wanted little T to meet her, to know her. I hurt because this is not possible now. Mom was a wonderful women, full of life, mischief, laughter, giving, and love. This time of the year, Thanksgiving and especially Christmas was her favorite. This year will be hard.

My oldest son had his first wrestling tournament 2 weeks ago. He won his first match and got hurt on his second one. We took him to the doctors on Sunday and they referred him to an orthapedic doctor. When we got there the doctor pulled of 2 3/4 vials of blood off his knee and said it looks like he tore his ACL. He goes to another doctor on Monday in Greenville that specializes his sports injuries. Poor kid, wrestling is over this year for him and most likely he won't be playing baseball either.

I'm so sorry about the loss of your mother. It's not at all selfish for you to have wanted your daughter to have known her. Hang in there. The holidays are rough when you're facing such a big loss. But find some peace in knowing that your mom is now watching over your sweet girl until you come and find her.

I am so sorry about your mother. I think it's totally normal to have wanted your daughter and her to have had a relationship. I hope that you will have many warm memories to help you through the holidays.

It sucks about your son, too. My niece just had ACL surgery and missed out on her whole senior year of basketball.

I'm so sorry to hear your mother passed away. (((HUGS))) My dear father passed away eight years ago and I still feel his loss in my life. Your daughter will see your mother through your acts of kindness.
