I sit in think back to that phone call in the middle of the night, that I was needed at the hospital on January 7th 1991. By the time I got there she was already gone to heaven. Today I miss my mother. This is the day I get to go decorate her grave because decoration day at the cemetery is mother’s day. If you have your mother call her, love her forgive the mistakes because people are sometimes, the best parents that they can be with the tools and knowledge they are given.
I reflect on my children. The two in heaven that I miscarried, the four I have walking this earth making mistakes on the journey of life.
My daughter latisha on June 1st 2016 will have been clean for a year from her ice/meth addiction. That means it has been a year since I took her out in the country side and talked with her because I had had enough and was not sure I would be here much longer. It has been a year since the girls laken, lacin and Gracen left my home.
Kyle is trying to find the best way to be a weekend father when he is allowed to be and dealing with not waking up to his children.
Kevin the son born not being able to hear, with a cyst on his brain and not speaking till five years old the one diagnosed retarded which is a word I hate is finishing up his 3rd semester in college with As and Bs just to prove sometimes the medical profession is wrong sometimes , and god is a better all-knowing person. He speaks and can hear.
Caleb my wild child is enrolled in college and will start in August. I am so proud of him.
And the marriage that I have taken a lot of public and private opinions about. I finally at 47 have peace in my life it is sad that it took from age 13 till now for me to figure out , that I need to take care of me. It has been a year since my friend Debra Ellig was diagnosed with lung cancer and July it will be a year since heaven gained a new angel.
Kathy Conley you are very special in my life have a Happy Mother’s day.
I am blessed to be alive and blessed with special people in my life. Have an awesome Mothers Day everyone.
