Topic: Mum would have been 60 today

It would have been my mum's 60th birthday today, had she not lost her battle with this awful cancer in December. I haven't told any of my friends but thought I'd post it here. Before she got sick, when she was still in her mid-50s, I was fantasising about taking her on a trip to Paris for the occasion...

I've been reading all the stories of those who lost their mothers with tears in my eyes today.

My love to all.

Maria

Dear Maria, we can still wish mum A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY. And someday you can still fulfil your fantasy of Paris as Mum will be right with you!

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's 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.                   By Mary Elizabeth Frye

Re: Mum would have been 60 today

Dear Maria;

I am so sorry about your Mom.  My Mom passed in Feb. this year and I will never get over it.  The doctor's use to tell my Mom she was healthy.  She was until 6 months before she passed.  I had wonderful times with her.  She loved to dance.  Your Mom was so young.  I am sorry you didn't get to go on the trip with her, but the fact that you were thinking of taking her tells us what a wonderful person you are.
