Laughing with Angels

I am sorry to have been away from my blog and the only posting I have today are pictures of my Mom.   Even though this is a well worn, scratchy photo of her- it is one of my favorite!  We lost Mom on September 2nd.  It is the first time I have been able to write about her without crying.  It never ceases to amaze me that she raised 8 children!  I raised only one and I know it is a very tough job!   I know my parents were strict parents when we were growing up ( I think they had to be) but I always knew they loved us!  My Dad died 5 years ago and I know Mom missed him so much.  

The picture above is Mom and Dad on their wedding day!  Another favorite picture of them both!  They look so young!

This last picture is of them both when my sister, Connie, got married.  I miss them both very much!  The title of this post is "Laughing with Angels" - that is how I want to picture them.   They are both together now with my older sister, Terri.  Knowing I will see them again someday helps too.  Time is a healer and just being able to type this is a sign of that healing.  I have started to work in my Craft room again - being busy does seem to help.  As I talk to people - I know lots of us have to go thru this loss.  I am not alone. My siblings and I were so fortunate to have them as parents.  We do have lots of wonderful memories too!
