BULLIES come in all ages

BULLIES come in all ages
(click to see movie trailer)

Surround yourself with positive people,
energy, and situations;
always avoid negativity.


Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
So, love the people who treat you right.

Forgive, and then forget about the ones who don't.

Monday's Memory ~Mother

Tomorrow, June 29, marks the 9 year anniversary of Mother's death.

I believe a woman does not truly grow up until she loses her mother, her primary role model for womanhood.

Please join me as I remember the life of a very special lady, my mother.

Yes, we will miss our mothers all the days of our lives. I many have grown up a little since mine passed away but there are times - there are times when I just sob wishing I could feel her arms around me just one more time.

Kit that was such a beautiful tribute, I LOVED all the pictures and the Glenn Miller Orchestra music which played in the background. Your mom was a beauty and you look just like her. I can see where you get your love of dogs!

Time seems to pass by quickly when our loved ones pass on. My dear Aunt Bette died in 2006 and I still think about her most days I miss her so much. xoxoxo

What a beautiful tribute for a very stunning looking lady, I have to admit to getting teary at the end but thank you so very much for sharing that with us. She looked a beautiful, warm hearted lady who loved you very much judging by the way she looked at you in the photos.

What a beautiful and touching tribute! I loved the pictures and getting a glimpse into your memories! I have also lost both of my parents, with my Mom passing just about 3 years ago. So I know all too well the heartache of that loss and and how you miss them more than you've ever missed anyone.

What a lovely and loving tribute to your mother! I will watch it more than once for the memories it brings! How fortunate you are to have all those pictures...and to have had the time with her. You look so much like her. I do agree with you about growing up. I am struggling with that. Thank you for sharing today. Bless you.

What wonderful memories. It doesn't matter how old we are, our parents will always be our parents whether they are with us or not.

Madi and Mom said...

Oh my word Ms K that was the most beautiful slide show I've ever seen. What a tribute to your beautiful Mother. I'm a little misty eyed.
The music was PERFECT.

I see you inherited you love of puppies from your Mother.

I'm 100% sure she is smiling down on you today.

Very touching.

Neat header pic.

Oh, Kit, I was crying from the very first photo. This is such a great video. I love all these photos and what a collection of memories of your mother's life. Thank you for sharing it with us.


MAXMOM said...

Oh Kit!
What a truly beautiful tribute to a beautiful lady! You must be so proud of your mum...and I am sure she felt the same for you! I loved the animals constantly around her and the obvious love she displayed in the photos for those around her.
Sending lotsaluv to you on this special day.

Such special memories.

Thanks for sharing such a wonderful tribute!!

Remington said...

I liked the video. Beth said to tell you thank you for the priviledge of letting her meet your mother. And she agrees that sometimes we don't truly grow up until they are gone. Beth lost her mother 16 years ago and she misses her SO much....

Aksharaa said...

That was a very endearing, vey romantic story...thank you for sharing your memories with us.
your mother must have been a very special person..

dewdana said...

So sorry, I understand completely. It is a life changing experience. For me I have become more like her ever since that day.
And that is a beautiful header photo even though it does not have any dogs in it ;-)

Kit, this is truly a beautiful memory album. You are so fortunate to have a lot of photos of your mother from an early age. I really enjoyed the video. We seem to have much in common: both May babies of the same age, both retired first grade teachers, and now, both our mothers died of lung cancer. (My mother never smoked. How?)

Thanks for sharing the memories of your mother.
