ICC you are very welcome! I just had to get on here and write to my Mom, Dad, my Sister Judy and her husband Roy. I just felt like I wanted to talk to them and I felt so much better after doing it. I loved all of them but my Mom which just passed away March 28, 2006, she was not just my Mom, she was my best friend some one I could go to and talk to about anything or any problem I had and she always listened and helped me out and give me the best advice she could. I don't have that anymore.
Me and the rest of my family all met at Luby's at 5:00 to eat together for Christmas because I just felt like I couldn't stand up and cook for 2 or 3 days as sick as I have been lately, but I promised my Mother that I would keep the family together and thats what we did. I know my Mom was watching us and looking down smilling the whole time.
On the way back friom eating, we had to drive about 60 miles to where we all met up at to eat and it has rained here all day here and I told my Husband that I wanted to stop by the Cemetary on the way back. He always takes me when I want to go but it was pouring down raining and he said, "Jan, it is raining so hard so why don't we come back another time." I told him no that I wanted to go by and see my Mama and Daddy. I guess he just didn't understand that it being Christmas that I wanted to get out and just go to their grave and talk to them. I got to tell them how much I loved them, oh how I missed them so, and told them Merry Christmas! After I done that I had me a good cry and then I was alright. There was no way I was gonna pass by there and not stop and tell them Merry Christmas because they new I was there and they heard every word I said to them.
ICC, I hope you feel better soon also. It's hard isn't it? May God Bless You and I hope you have a Mery Christmas and a Happy New Year!
