:) Laura You Need A Hug
I Need One Too, Still Missing My Mom :( #10209560

Laura E. Swan level-classic July 01, 2012

Yes! I sure did (and DO) and I will totally take those three extra you added!

Back at you dear friend.


Thank you. Mumj told me to let all the good memories of my Dad help me heal. I know she is right so I will say this to you too. Keep them fresh in your heart.

It's takes months and even years Wm for the pain to ease. You will always miss her. It just is so unreal that we will never see them again.

BUT their LOVE and their LOVE for US always seems to stay alive and well in our hearts. That is the miracle for those of us left behind once they are gone. I lost my Mom when I was only 24 and I STILL feel her great love for me in my heart. I am so grateful for this.

I'm broken hearted that you didn't know your Dad. I'm so sorry for you. You deserved a great dad and tons of memories of one. I hope The Lord has blessed you in other ways to make up for it. Wonderful Uncles and Neighbor men growing up. :) ?

I read about your long time friend on one of Lydia's images and left you a note there.

So sad. And he passed the same day my Daddy did.

Happy to hear you got out with your camera! :) Keep your eyes open for butterflies! #10209657

Those butterflies are there for you and watching over you..and once they land, then get that image!! Fun time with you and your Leica! #10210290

Laura E. Swan level-classic July 02, 2012

I agree Lydia. :) Wm...there is something special about the butterflies...I will try and take photos of them now too.

Wm, at around the exact same time my Daddy passed away I was in my home about 20 feet up off of the ground level and a butterfly came and danced at the window for me. He stayed and danced and danced. It was so very beautiful and I stood there in amazement. That has never happened here before...I felt it was a sign. :) Daddy was gone and out of pain now. And he was. The call came in right after that.

Ahhh...the good old ways of shooting sure sound good. I miss my old Minolta.

Have a happy day you guys. :) #10211722
