    Bk Buds and Babes....

    Feeling a little melancholy and wanted some imput....
    This could be about your first date, your first kiss,..First time you ever met an absent parent...or they asked to meet you...you found out you were adopted....found out your brothers lied and they were adopted....

    wished they were adopted....Ha!

    your first job interview..the first time you got fired.....

    what chocolate tasted like for the first time....the buzz from your first taste of a Pepsi.....

    what it felt like to see your first child born....and see the last one graduate....see them marry...

    we have so many things that touch us..many we don't even give a second thought too...

    pay attention... we don't do that enough....
    and your probably wondering what brought this on...
    my youngest,, my mini-me....

    Said.."Mom did you see your shadow today? ....I was holding your hand...and I said I love you"

    told him heard your "I love you"....

    then he laughed with the biggest chicken sheet grin on his face and said this stuff works!!!!!

    My baby gave me a memory today....

    the look on his face was priceless....

    I will carry that thought for let rest of my life..........

    When I was 21 I joined the Air Force to "get away" from my daddy's controlling hand in my life..I've always been his little girl and with that comes stipulations! lol My son was born in April the next year and I took him back home once a year to see his Granddaddy. For the longest time, the night before I was to leave, Daddy and I would sit up until late, talking and holding hands or his arm around me holding me like his little girl...and the next morning, early, I would put my son and our things in my car and drive away, crying for the first 30 or so miles. I thought I was leaving my daddy in bed and resting... not until years later, after my daughter was born and both kids older, did I find out the truth...his heart was really messing up and he was facing open heart surgery...my step mother, wanting me to know my father completely, told me, "for years your daddy has stood in the upstairs window and peeked through the curtain and watched you drive away with those babies. I've seen him cry until his legs gave way, not knowing if you all were coming back or not." He never wanted me to know..he didn't want me to be sad leaving him! I'm going home in December to see my Daddy...haven't been home in almost 2 years...he turned 71 this month. Guess I'm needing to be "Daddy's Little Girl" again for a week or so...THAT'S my most memorable moment..being Daddy's little girl!

    For some reason this has never left my memory... there was absolutely nothing the slightest bit extraordinary about it... but one morning I was awaken by the sound of rustling. I quickly but quietly got up and went to my son's room (he was maybe 7 or 8 months old) I knew he was awake but I didn't want him to hear me. I stood silently at his door and just looked at him in awe and my heart smiled watching him lie on his back while playing quietly with something in his crib. I guess I stood there for 3 minutes or so when I moved and the floor creaked. He jumped up so fast ...his face lit up like a christmas tree, he was so excited to see me there that he squealed with delight.
    Then the pain ...overwhelming pain in my heart the day I left him in Chicago to start a new life for himself and his girl.
    Don't remember who it was that said this to me but it helped. I was crying, (more like bawling) because I missed my boy so much and someone told me that as parents if we do our job well ...they will leave. Job well done. I still think about that all the time to ease my missing him. I know I'm blessed, what a gift I was given.

    Not pleasant but what will be forever burned into my heart and soul was watching my Mother fade away from Alzheimer's Disease. Before she was totally lost, she would have moments of clarity and tell me not to let my kids near her because she didn't want them to remember her that way!! She faded slowly over a period of 2 years to the point that when she passed it was almost a relief to know that she wasn't going thru the daily agony of not recognizing her own family!! The last couple of months she was alive she always looked terrified which dam near ripped my heart outta me to watch!! As I got older I became more aware of how fortunate I was to have her in my life as I've found out most people never have anyone in their life like that, no less to have a Mother like that. She had the ability to always make you feel good about yourself no matter how chitty you felt or how bad you fukked up, she always knew exactly what to say to allow you to love yourself and forgive yourself.

    I'm certain I'll never know anyone like her again, but I'm grateful that she was in my life for as long as she was. She taught myself and my brother and sister what it is to be selfless and compassionate and forgiving. We all learned by example what true absolute unconditional love really is thru her. I can only hope to be half as good a person as she was. She is responsible for all of my spirituality and , believe it or not my crazy azz sense of humor. After her being gone 10 years I still think about her everyday and talk to her. I will always strive to live up to the standard that she set for us as a human being. I try not to judge people, I give all respect untill they give me reason not to, and try to be true to myself, however weird that maybe!!!!

    Ah chit I'm babblin sorry about dat, i gotta get outta here



    Hey Doc? I love you Brother! Sure wish I had known your mom! You know the story of my own...you were so very blessed my sweet friend!

    The feeling of freedom........
    I will always remember it.

    The gift each of my children gave to me the day each was born.

    The feeling of sorrow and defeat in the final seconds of my marriage.( even when it was I who did the split.)

    The awe of seeing my Mother's spirit rise up out of her in her final moments of life......

    The hopeless feeling when that jet crashed into the first tower........
    Knowing life as we have lived it would never again be the same.........

    The warmth your soul feels when you gaze at a sunset, an eagle soaring, a baby smiling, two lovers embracing, when you're so damn tired of the road and you come around a bend in the mtn. road and there's a alpine meadow, just for you....
    soaking in the hot springs......
    the roar of a twin engine...
    The wind in your face....

    And for right now... Waking up in the morning.

    I have several moments that I will never forget.

    First one is getting "the" call from my exhusband telling me that our son had been in a car accident and I needed to get to Florida. Second memory is seeing my son lying in an ICU bed badly injured but alive

    Third was after his surgeries the doctor telling us he was stable and we could see him soon.

    Best memory was my son opening his eyes smiling and saying he was going to be OK that was the best moment of my life.

    My son is completely healed now and has no physical disabilites but he did lose a childhood friend and that still weighs heavy on his heart.....but is doing well and is able to talk about it now

    i think there are several moments in all our lifes that make the tops

    graduating high school--we went into NYC afterward--drinking age was 18 there then--and even thou i was 17 no-one id'd us--hahhaahahahaha

    my wedding day and the anticipation of what the future held

    giving birth to my 1st and only daughter--she was born at home delivered by the police and 1st aid squad and the look her father had on his face seeing her enter the world

    giving birth to my son--again not in the hospital(fast deliveries) in the back seat of a pea green plymouth fury station wagon

    a bad one--coming home from work on valentines day "84" to a note from my then husband to wake him--for him to tell me my brother committed suicide and not believing it--my brother that was 19 mths my jr had killed himself over a women and was living in Georgia at the time near Ft Benning--i did not remember life without him--hard time
    there are soooo many more ad they make us cherish life more

    I have 3.
    The first would be at a friends party in high school. After realizing that my buddy was MIA, I went looking for him to see if he was driving the porcelin bus, but instead found him in his bedroom in a pool of blood, he had just shot himself in the head with a 22. He had just had his heart broken by a girl, he died in my arms while I was screaming for help.
    The second was while racing in Ontario, a little Frenchman passed me as he was lapping me. Just after he went by, his bike went into a speed wobble (tank slapper) and pitched him off. I witnessed him tumble into the guardrail and have his head ripped off by one of the support posts on the guardrail. I didn't know him personally and I don't remember his name, but that sight kept me off bikes for 15 years or more.
    The third is a happy one thank Gawd. It was the first time on stage doing stand-up. I was at the Yuk-Yuk's Comedy cabaret in Toronto. I don't remember my act except in little snippits, but I do remember that rush, that sense of relief, and being the most pumped I have probably ever been when I came off stage to cheering and applause.
