Thinking of my Mother

Thinking of my Mother. by Mary Stebbins Taitt. My mother loved to throw rose petals up in the air and watch them fall against the blue blue sky. She loved blowing bubbles, she loved singing, and she loved little children. So this is for her.

This is a bright and cheerful image. She would have liked it, I am certain.

This is beautiful! Your posts about your mother are inspiring me to do one for my mother who is slowly dying from alzheimers. Thankyou

C'est très très joli ! I'm sure you will understand this :-))

Thank you so much Sara, Blue Rose, and Marie for your kind comments!

Yes, I think Mom would have liked this.

And yes, Marie, I do understand. Thank you.

Blue Rose, I am so sorry about your Mom. My Mom had dementia, too, and it was sad to watch a once super, funny, creative and intelligent woman forget almost everything. Except she retained her sense of humor 'til the end and often still recognized us (at least as soemone she loved). I send you love and warm wishes.

Your mother is all around you in the bubbles...

Yes, im sure your mom would have liked this. And yes, im sure she is all over those bubbles sorrounding you and the kids all the time. I still feel my father is around the park, right infront of my office building, where he is every morning, to see me and say hi. I miss him so much, and really still feel that I would see him there, even a year after he passed away... I miss him so much more during family gatherings when he was always with us. Last night was my sister's birthday and we all had a nice time. But I miss him so, the morning after, when we were all home and got to thinking that he was there...

I am so sorry Pea that you are still missing your father. I still miss mine, too, and he died in 1998. And I miss my Mom--LOTS! My thoughts and prayers are with you!
