Personal Notes

My Mother and I had our differences. As I stayed by here death bed, I saw a parade of people some I knew others I didn't. People who loved my Mother and came to pay thier last respects. I couldn't talk to my Mother when I got to her because she was in coma. I realized at the end that she tried so hard to be loved and to love. Thank you Mom for the greatest lesson I have ever learned for as I watched the woman who gave me life pass from this world you once again gave me life.
