" Life is tragic simply because the earth turns and the sun inexorably rises and sets, and one day, for each of us, the sun will go down for the last, last time. " - James A. Baldwin
I lost my Mom when I was sixteen years old and this quote helped me alot during that period. I had been depressed for awhile off and on when this happen, because my Grandmother passed away 10 months earlier. My Grandmother spoiled me non-stop and was one of the most amazing women, I've ever known. My Sister reminds me alot of my Mom, in the way she handles her children. She is loving and kind with them, but they know when she has had enough of their nonsense! My Mom could give you one look and you knew you were done for!
That reminds me of this time we were in the grocery store, and I decided to throw a temper tantrum right there! This is something I knew better than doing and I had never done. But, I really wanted these new erasers for school. So, in my pretty frilly Church dress I screamed and jumped up and down like a maniac. My Mom gave me this look and I could have died right there! I was so scared to go home. I really considered running away, for fear of what was going to happen behind closed doors! I of course was spanked, put on punishment, and put to bed without desert.
My Mother is my hero for showing me what it means to be a real woman. I know many people say it, but my Mom was the best! She was always there to talk about any and everything. Due to a divorce, she raised two outstanding daughters on her own and worked hard to give us what we needed.
Anytime I'm missing my Mom, I think about this quote and know that I have it in my to push on. Because, death is a natural part of life and it helps to smile through the memories, good and bad!
