A Mothers Heart.......

So this morning I wrote the post below....filled with so many emotions of a Mother watching her children grow and learn about the hard facets of life.

This afternoon the phone rang, and for some strange reason I hesitated to pick it up.

"Hello" I say,

"Hello, Tara, this is Dawn, Dee's Mother"

My heart sank.

"Oh Dawn I say, tell me it is not so"

"Yes, Tara, Dee passed away last night".....says Dawn with a shaky voice.

I start to cry.

"Oh Dawn, I'm so, so sorry".........

and then we continued on our conversation. Dawn telling me that Dee had her favorite dinner [Nachos and Pot Stickers] that she had her son and brothers with her until late evening. Everyone went home and to bed, not thinking that this was the time for Dee to pass. [although we knew that it would be soon due to the nature of her cancer and how it had traveled]

Dee was an amazing woman. We had become friends back in 1994. It is funny, but we both were of the belief of destiny and that things happen for a reason. Our meeting and becoming friends had an important meaning for the two of us......as the years unfolded our friendship grew, even if we only saw each other a few times a year. We could just pick up the phone and call, just to talk. She was a friend, pure and true. We loved each other unconditionally. That is what makes me the sadest today....I lost a friend, a person who had a profound effect on my life...someone who let me know that life was truly a blessing.........Dee adored Emma Sage, she celebrated with me every step of the way, never, ever thinking that T21 was anything but to celebrate.


Delores [yes,,,,it rhymes with xxxxxx, for our Seinfeld friends....and we always laughed and laughed about that episode] you were an amazing woman....a dear friend........a wonderful mother, sister, daughter. I'm going to miss you dearly, but I know your soul is eternal and your spirit I will carry with me until we meet again.

Good-bye dear friend.

I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your dear friend. I can feel your heart aching for her in your writing. And I know the tug of those heart strings as we watch our children grow up too.

If they could only know how very much we love them, how we would lay our lives down for them in a flash...

Hug your friend's daughter especially close today; let her feel a mother's arms around her.

(((big hugs for you)))
