But I Wish.......

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

I know it isn't possible but I still wish I could dial my Mother's phone number and she could answer. I try to be forward looking and generally am, but every once in awhile I get melancholy for no particular reason and it stays with me. It happened last night and I was and am still pretty sad about it.

Today I will be out very early to see a Dr. before a sort of routine procedure happening later this month. It would have been reassuring to talk to my Mom last night but she has been gone a very long time and it couldn't be. I know that, but I wish it would have been possible.

When you think about real estate, it is time to focus. I have helped people for close to thirty years in all areas, and made the process not only simple but enjoyable. Why should you go it alone or settle for less? Call me and find a partner to help, direct and get you where you want to be.

What a poignant post, Sheila. As I go through chemo, I miss my mother all the time. She lived with us the last ten years of her life. I had a similar night recently and I heard her clearly say to me, "FIGHT!" I didn't think much of it until my brother called me the next morning and said, "Mama visited me last night." It was at the exact same time as I heard her. It's given me a lot of peace. Thanks for sharing your heart.

Many of us would love to have more conversations with our parents.

I hope your medical procedure goes well.

I had implant surgery for a front tooth last week. I will not be doing any biting for a good while.

I often have similar thoughts about being able to dial up my mother.  She passed in 1975.  I still have her number, (916) 456-7252.  I should dial it some day and see who answers!

Morning Sheila.

Hardly a day goes by that I wish I could call my parents just to chat.  I miss them so.

I'm going to hug mom extra special today. Thank you for reminding me of the gift of still having her nearby. ( I do wish I could call dad, his sage advice and sense of humor were always a Godsend to me )

It is hard Debb. You are lucky to have your Mom. I lost both my parents way too soon.     Sheila

Oh, such a poignant post, Sheila. I am like that with my grandparents - and while I learned so much and loved my grandfathers SO much, it's my grandmothers that I miss talking to. They were so full of wisdom and their hearts never judged and always loved.
