i will follow….


I don’t normally post on the weekends. I actually don’t really even get on the computer….but i do have an iphone..so it does get checked….but unless it’s something important….i put it aside till monday morning.
weekends are family time.
always have been …..

but this weekend was different…..is different.

I recieved a call from my dad on friday saying he was taking my mother to the hospital……

my mom had been sick for over a week ……in fact we all thought she had the flu……

but in the last few days…she could hardly move…..and on Friday when my dad said

she was not coherent and not able to form a complete sentence…he took her to the hospital.

my mom is my best friend…..we are so eerily similar….

we have the same voice….so when she is at my home…people get us confused on the phone.

my mom is my best friend and i don’t know what i would do with out her.

she was admitted to the hospital with pneumonia…but at a stage where different parts of her body were starting to shut down because she thought she had the flu and was in bed at home.

She is going to be fine.

She is sick…but going to be fine.

I sit here writing……knowing of good friends that are not close with their mothers…..and maybe my situation is different…..because my mom is my best friend.

It wasn’t till after high school that we even forged a relationship that was beautiful.

I was a different person in high school.

I know we all were…..but my situation was different. I almost didn’t graduate…..and my parents made a decision to send me to live with my aunt and uncle.

{that is a whole different post….}

Anyways……my mom is my best friend and she is sick but going to be o.k.

I’ve had friends that have lost their mothers…….and friends that don’t even really know their mothers……so i consider myself lucky……i have a beautiful relationship.

when i left Colorado…..over 2 years ago……..i had a little going away party at my house…just the girls….about 20 of them……friends and neighbors…..and my mom.

well…..there was a book that was passed around called “oh…the places you’ll go..” by Dr. Suess.

….Polaroid pictures were taken of the evening with me and the girls….with each of the girls writing a bit …and on the page was a picture of myself and my mom…..and she wrote….

‘where you go…i will follow’.

becuase that is my mom……
