Out of the Blue

I'm thinking about my mom a lot these past few days, as it was five years ago today that she died. I bring this up not to bring you down, nor do I need anybody's sympathy over this. But if you still have your mom, dad, or both, I'd like to ask you to give them a call or a hug today. It sounds corny, but it makes me feel good suggesting that; maybe because I know my mom would have liked the thought.

Thank you Blue. I'm one of the lucky ones who not only still has both parents but consider them two of my best friends... and still I should see them more than I do. I honestly don't know how I'll cope when they pass.



Without trying to be disrespectful to Blue or any others that have lost loved ones, I'd like to offer anyone who's lost a parent the option of adopting my mother, on the condition that she's then yours, and you can't give her back.

I hate hearing that nin, it honestly makes me sad. But even though I obviously don't really know you, I'm pretty sure you're a good guy who hasn't used the "bad parent card" to justify being an asshole like so many people do.
