Officially Missing You… Happy Birthday Mom, RIP!

Sometimes we get so caught up in life we forget what’s most important…

I finally got a chance to look at the calendar and realized today would’ve been my mothers 53rd Birthday!

My mom has been gone since 2006 and it still seems like I lost her yesterday…

I wish she were here to tell me how proud of me she was… I would pay to hear her say it just one more time!

I wish she was here to tell me things would be ok… If I could just see her face one more time!

I wish she could’ve met my son her grandson just once…

But the reality of it is she won’t because she’s no longer here!

Happy Birthday Mom, I love you big much (as we used to say)!!

To those of you who still have your parents, hug them and tell them you love them, you never know when it will be their last day, don’t wait until it’s too late…

I didn’t and now I have to deal with it everyday of my life!

Alicia Keys said it best in her Tell You Something song!

If you never listen to another word I say… please, please listen to this.. I never want anyone else to know this kind of pain!

“Tell You Something (Nana’s Reprise)”

Get so caught up everyday
Tryna keep it all together
While the time it slips away
You see I know nothing last forever

Imagine there was no tomorrow
Imagine that I couldn’t see your face
There would be no limit to my sorrow
So all I can say

I wanna tell you something, give you something
Show you in so many ways
’cause it would all mean nothing if I don’t say something before it all goes away
Don’t wanna wait to bring you flowers, waste another hour let alone another day
I’m gonna tell you something, show you something, won’t wait till it’s too late

[2x] (I can’t wait, I can’t wait, I won’t wait, I don’t wanna wait)

Just a simple conversation
Just a moment is all it takes
I wanna be there just to listen
(I wanna be here)
And I don’t wanna hesitate

Imagine there was no tomorrow
Imagine that I couldn’t see your face
There would be no limit to my sorrow
’cause there’s nothing that could fill that space
I don’t wanna put it off for too long
I didn’t say all that I had to say
I wanna take my time and right the wrong before we get to that place


Just lean on my shoulder,
It’s not over till it’s over
Don’t worry about it cause
I’m gonna make sure our bond gets stronger
I don’t wanna wait till the storm and something wrong and now you’re gone and I can’t find you

[Chorus x2]

[x4] I can’t wait, I can’t wait, I won’t wait, I don’t wanna wait
