I have lost both of my parents and the pain is still as if it happened yesterday. In 2007 I lost my Dad; then in 2014 - I lost my mother to pancreatic cancer. There are times when I feel absolutely lost. I yearn to speak with my Dad and neither he or my mother is here to answer my call.
Even if I do not receive any reply from anyone - just being able to release the pain in writing is so therapeutic. What enables me to cope with my pain and sorrow is the promise given at Revelation 21;3,4.
Without the hope and promise given in the Bible - I honestly don't know where I would be - I would probably have such a deep void in the pit of my stomach.
I miss the phone calls I use to receive from my Dad - you know, the calls you take for granted when they were alive. How I miss those phone calls but I do know one day I will hear their voices again.
I lost my dad August 8, 1991 he had supraneucleus palsy. It was the same thing that Dudley Moore the actor from Arthur had. My dad was a singer and always won competitions and sing in bars. He knew lots of famous people such as the rat pack. I recall him saying he bought Jackie Gleason beers. One time when dad was in a singing competition the judges couldn't decide who should be picked as the winner either my dad or Dean Martin. He had that same kind of charisma and singing style.
My mom and dad met each other at a carnival. Mom was 15 years old and dad 17 years old. My dad told his friend just from looking at the back of my mother that he was going to marry her. They had gone together many years and always had a chaparone when they went out. Usually, my mother's older sister. Mom had tolerated a lot from my father. She had taught dad how to dance and with his singing, charm and good looks he was out all the time having a good time. He was asked to go to Hollywood with a cowboy band. My dad could sing all styles and never had a lesson. He was blessed. Mom was a dressmaker and could cook and bake to the point that people always remember her for all the pies she baked at Thanksgiving. She'd make pizza for dad's friends from the corner bar. Dad wanted his cake and eat it too. He had both until the day he passed. My mother tolerated a lot from him. At the end she told me that even that he did the things he did she was happy with him. She loved him and I was glad she told me on the telephone while she was in the hospital. I never thought I speak with her on the telephone again because of the circumstances. Mom passed on Monday Nov.19, 2012.
I will continue moving forward and living my life. I've had to endure a lot with some other issues that were truly uncalled for. My mom and dad loved my son Joe and considered him their 3rd child. My son was taken from me, mom and his dad who adopted him when my first exhusband suggested it. My dad was 76 1/2 and mom was 96 years old and 7 months when she passed. No matter how long someone has a parent it's we still only have one mom and one dad. I will continue to live life as best I can and try to enjoy every moment. That is until a wave hits me and the tears roll down my face.
The issue for me is on moving forward - Im seem to be stuck in a perpetually rolling wave of emotions, but still have things that should be done. However I never seem to get any good results since and during. I miss them both and would like them to be proud, but the more I do the more I screw up. I know it wont be this way forever but I dont know how to create a better whats next.
