I called home. <3
Thanks for that reminder, I appreciated it.
You're welcome, darling. Thank you. *hugs* Sets my heart a little easier, after mising the opportunity myself one time when it was there, and I didn't take it, and she died the next day.
One of the saddest, most touching days of my life was in college when a friend's mom died of cancer. After we heard the news and comforted her, everyone snuck away to call their parents and say, "I love you."
Now it is habit when I speak to them, b/c I do love them.
they are in Israel right now (in the safer part), but I still send good vibes that way so they return safely. (a light hearted moment) If I had to take care of their neurotic dog until she dies I would go insane!
Aww!! That's so great about people calling their parents. I was very fortunate to have some very good friends with me for my Mom's funeral.
In fact, she was a second Mom to many of them.

i'm going to tell my parents (and others that love me) that as soon as possible tomorrow. as soon as i wake up. thank you for the reminder, randomposting. you are truly amazing.
You're a sweetie, babe. Thank you. *huggles*
I bet your mama would be so proud of you!
Aww! Thanks sweetie!! :.) I wish you could too! lol. *huggles* I do appreciate the e-bear-hug very much.
i thought about that very fact two years ago when i was all messed up and stuff, so i cleaned up (for the most part) and appologized and now i have a good realtionship with my whole family. :)
I'm glad to hear it, sweetheart. :)
So many coincidences here, there must be something in the air.
I was just now going through my image files, and the tango appeared, somewhat differently, of course.
I can tell you my Dad issues have healed considerably in the last couple of years.
Psychic threads are amazing.
p.s. Not too far, at all.
I tell my parents that I love them everyday.
I had an argument with my uncle 5 years ago, we never fully made up, and we were speaking again, but only a little, when he died of a heart attack. Now my heart is broken as I didn't say I love you, or good bye. I will never hold a grudge again, I learnt the hard way.
It's hard, isn't it? *hugs* I'm sorry for your loss, and I'm glad you and your parents have a good relationship. It's so important.
Aw. I have to go call my Daddy now (and hell, I might even agree to talk to my mother for a few minutes, too).
You rock. Thanks, babe. :)
Aww random. I'm so sorry. *hugs*
You'll have to live up to your Mother by being a good Mother in return, yes? I'm sure she's proud of you.
It is sometimes hard to convey that you care to people. Not just family members, but friends too.
*hugs* Thanks babe. I'm trying to be a good Mom. :) It's just hard when you have questions that are specifically things you want to ask your Mama, and you have to ask someone else, you know? lol. Luckily I have wonderful women still living in my family and wonderful friends. and some of my friends Mom's have adopted me so to speak, so taht's always helpful. ;)
Random...moms know that you love them. I'm positive that even though you didn't tell her the last time, she knew. :)
I like to think so. :) All the same, I wish I had.
I sill miss my mom too. :-/
I love your icon.
*huggles* And it sucks, doesn't it?
Well I am going to call my mom after I leave this comment.
As for my father, I have tried to rebuild our relationship but he shot me down.
I'm glad you called your Mom. :)
I'm sorry things are hard with your Dad. :(
there was this "children's" poet in my other language who also wrote essays and aphorisms. one of the aphorisms said that you were a child as long as your parents were alive. it takes years to learn how not to be somebody's child, especially if that person did make it clear to you what it meant to know you were loved unconditionally.
i am lucky my parents are still alive and loving, although i live far away from them. still, i'm more aware each year what it means for my sense of the world and the people in it that i've never had any doubts about their love for me.
it is very kind of you to remind people about the larger picture. i hope your sunday has been good.
Thanks sweetheart. *hugs*
Many days I feel physically sick and heavy with regret for the things I never got to say to my mom before she died. you never realized just how much you take for granted and take advantage until it's too late. sad truth of life. while things with my dad arent good i have been working to repair them and i hope that when he passes i wont be able to find any mistakes with the way i've handled things with him. this was a good post. thank you.
I know how you feel. It hurts. Thinking about all of the times you wish you would have said something different, or made things more clear about how I felt. *hugs*
