Saturday, May 9


Dear Mom. Today is Mother's Day. Looking back, I use to run out and get you that funny card that brought you to tears,a balloon, and some little gifts.(frogs)..Thats why my blogs background is in frogs for you. A blog is another way of saying journal or diary..Crazy Huh. I think about you everyday.And I still cant believe its been almost four years July 10since you went to be with the Lord. . You were in the rehab after your gallbladder surgery and you insisted I fly to Missouri to Be Marks best man. I was afraid to leave you. Remember I went back in the room three times to say by and I love you and will show you Marks wedding pics when I got back.You said go Son .If anything happens to me,You'll know where I'll be. Only I didn't stay I got the call at 8 a.m. next morning saying you Had Passed.I wanted to die right then & there.But Mark sat right beside me and he held me.Kept me from losing it.Just like you knew he would.You adopted him right away. 11 years ago. I remember your lighting face up when I would bring you and Dad a chimichanga buritto home for lunch. And now Dad is there with you June 20Th 09.With out God Mom I would not have gotten Thur this.So much has happened. Oh and thanks for leaving me your ulcer.A painting or a lamp would of been great.LOL . Just kidding. well Mom today I will release a balloon with a special note. I'm going to go to Church and watch the People celebrate with their Moms.(You taught me not to be selfish .So I wont stay home and mope.).But I will carry you in my heart a little heavier this Day.I Love you and Thank you for being YOU.
love Always your son Johnathon
P..S. Does God let you clutter Heaven with Nick-knacks...

  3. John,

    What a lovely note to Mom. My mother used to collect frogs too. I'm not sure why your mom did, but my mom had laryngitis for three or four months and my dad gave her the nickname, "Frog". To this day, it is what he affectionately calls her, lol.

    I could not help at the ulcer comment, and your whole post was so from the heart it brought tears to my eyes.

    I'm quite sure Mom is proud of her John. Take care of you though and that ulcer, change your life up and get healthy. God Bless!

  4. Great tribute to your Mother. Remember she is always with you right in your heart. Send her a thought & I know she'll get it. hope you had a great day! hugz~kbear

  5. God bless you John. Thanks for the 'follow' ;-)

  6. A beautiful post John and one which made me cry. I am sure your Mother is watching over you and always will. God bless.

  7. Wonderful post John, very nice, I know she read it. :) Hugs, Kelly

  8. Oh your mom sounds like she is a amazing woman. I hope you find some peace in knowing she is wearing her crown of glory with your dad and they are dancing right along with our Lord.
    Have a wonderful week.


  9. I have been just passing by your blog after I responded with a comment once and I thought at the time what would a handsome young man want to have an old lADY 0F 79 cluitter up his blog. After reading your tribute to your mom I had to comment It was from the heart. Many years ago my sister in law with a 6 month old and a 4 year old sons went on for gall bladder surgery and died on the operating table. She was 23. We have always wondered why with her youth god would not let her recover from a gallbladder surgery. Bless you John for being a good son. I like your frogs as long as they do not jump. lol
