Another anniversary since you been gone..

I can't figure out why It hurts extra when certain days and times come around. I wish they didn't because I don't want to think about the day you had trouble breathing and took your last breathe. A bond that one has with their mother is like no other. Those that don't have a relationship with their mother, need to get one before you regret it. She's apart of you. You can see that if you just take time to look into her eyes and listen to her story. Instead of you complaining and whining about yours. I guess today I want to let those know that still do have your mother that you need not waste life being bitter. Mothers make mistakes but don't make a mistake by loving with conditions. Love unconditionally. And make memories so that when either of you do leave this world, your tears will be accompanied with a smile because you just caught glimpse of a good time you shared. Pray my strength as my heart is heavy. I know by the end of the day, I will have a smile from a memory that we shared. There's only two loves that are the greatest and like no other... God's Love and a Mother's Love. Continue resting mommy... I love you

Another Year Mommy

Another year without you mommy...(Sigh)

Two years have passed since you been Gone
and I don't dare to question God no more
God took you out of pain and suffering
but you are my mommy and I often reflect how you would look at me
With such love and a smile on your face as I entered the room and a tear rolling down your face
I felt your love even when you stopped speaking
I felt your warm embrace even when you didn't have strength to hold me
Your wonderful scent...I will never forget
Knowing that your safe, makes me at peace
but boy what I would give to see you smiling again
so I close my eyes and I remember....I remember.
Your picture I keep in my purse and one next to my bed
Your memory will always LIVE.
I Love You Mommy

I received this email on January 4, 2011

Dear maria,

Following the unanimous approval of Congress earlier this month, and the thousands of e-mails and messages you and other advocates sent to the White House last week, I'm pleased to share that today President Obama signed the National Alzheimer's Project Act (NAPA) into law. Once implemented, NAPA will ensure our nation has what Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius calls an "aggressive and coordinated national strategy" to confront the present and rapidly escalating Alzheimer crisis.

Today is a day to celebrate. This is a victory for the 5.3 million people who live with Alzheimer's in this country and the nearly 11 million caregivers. It is a victory for you and more than 300,000 other advocates who stood up and demanded that our nation's leaders create a plan for combating this disease. The journey to take NAPA from concept to law of the land is a victory for all of us.

Tomorrow we will return to the hard but rewarding work that lies ahead. NAPA is a milestone and a very important step forward, but it is not the destination. Our destination is a world without Alzheimer's and we can only arrive there through therapies that stop this disease and improved care and support for those contending with it. Rest assured that we will work tirelessly to maintain the momentum evident today. We will work to ensure NAPA is implemented effectively so that it lives up to its promise, and we will work to advance our other legislative priorities for 2011, including a major, immediate increase in research funding.

As you know, there is no time to waste.

Please continue to stand with us in the fight against Alzheimer's. We can't succeed without you. And please ask others to join us in this effort. We'll need to call on every available voice to succeed.

Again, congratulations and thank you.

Harry Johns

President and CEO

Another Birthday Without You...

Another Birthday Without You
Its so hard to take in
One thing I thank God for
is that your pain has gone away
I love you so much mommy
and I will always long for your embrance
When I close my eyes to go to bed
I will feel your warm embrace
What hurts me the most is not being able to see you have happier days
I promise to live my life the way you always wanted me too
It's so hard without you but I know God loved you more
because God took the most precious thing I had
so that he could protect her from ALL.
I love you mommy
Cumpleanos Feliz

Mothers Day

I spent mothers day with my sister and brother. Which helped alot. Sometimes you have to be around the blood family especially when its a sad occasion. One thing me and sister realized is that if it wasn't for our mom,then we wouldn't be moms. It has its ups and downs,but we wouldn't trade it for nothing.

I realized that I not only miss her, but I realized that seeing her hurt and struggle in her life was hurting me because I wish I could have taken that hurt away. Now that I found the problem, now I can work on fixing it.
Fixing me that is.

Love you mommy.

My birthday..

My birthday is Sunday, April 11th and all I could think about is mothers day next month. Dreading it again. Not having my mother with me.

Saturday, February 13, 2010

Feb 13

I'm up at 4:30 a.m.
As I layed in the bed,I was reliving the phone call I received telling me your mom looks like shes not going to make. It was hard for her to breathe. I was trying to rush out of the court house. I was paying a friends ticket. I got in the car to go to mommy and the hospital called again and this time said; Your mom passed away. There was a pause. I said, Was she in pain? The nurse said no, she was with her when she took her last breathe. I told her I was on my way to not move her.

When I got there, a sick feeling came to me. When I saw her laying in her hospital bed, looking as if she was sleep,just as peaceful as she can be. I went to the hallway to try to get my thoughts together. I was pacing back and forth. I felt lost. The pain consumed my body and mind. I went into her room again and I layed next her. She was still warm. Embracing her. Smelling her night gown and hair. I felt like a baby that needed her mother.

I paused so much in typing this. I don't want to relive this.

I layed with her a couple of hours. The chaplain came in to pray and read Psalms 23...

1 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.

2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,

he leads me beside quiet waters,

3 he restores my soul.

He guides me in paths of righteousness

for his name's sake.

4 Even though I walk

through the valley of the shadow of death, [a]

I will fear no evil,

for you are with me;

your rod and your staff,

they comfort me.

5 You prepare a table before me

in the presence of my enemies.

You anoint my head with oil;

my cup overflows.

6 Surely goodness and love will follow me

all the days of my life,

and I will dwell in the house of the LORD


 They picked her up. I said, Bye mommy.
 And I was never the same.

Why is my mind torturing me with this.
Maybe its because I have to let it out.

God help me.
I miss you so much mommy.

Feb 13th

On Feb 13th 6p.m. I have a special blog talk radio segment about my mom. Listen and support me.

I have these moments alot..

Went to the store and an older woman came up to me to ask me for the time..I told her the time while tears were streaming down my face. She reminded me of mommy.

I hate this! I can't even speak about her without crying, or see someone that reminds me of her. I can't describe the pain.

Wednesday, January 6, 2010

Time is flying, but everything feels the same..

Its January already, next month will be 1 year that I'm without mommy. I thought it would be better by now,but I still have nights of crying, or standing in the line at grocery store and it just hits me. I fight to stay positive, because it hurts.

Wednesday, December 23, 2009


I look so much like my mom.
If I could turn back time. And since I can't..I have to learn how to live with myself.
God help me.

Wednesday, November 25, 2009


Started cooking Wednesday(day before thanksgiving). When I was little, mommy use to have a beer in one hand as she cooked dinner,with her salsa music playing. Thats what I'm doing:) Miss you mommy.
I love you.
**My heart is so heavy. Its a cross between anxiety, laughter and sadness.

Holidays are near...

Holidays are near
and I have some fears
because your not here.
I will try my best
to put on a good face
because it still hurts that your not here.
I have to now hold dearly
the memories and the times
I hold so near...

 I love you mommy

(God give me strength)

I Had a Good Mother

There is no name in all the world like MOTHER,It stands out above any other.To be a mother, a woman endures great pain,And yet after the child is born, she would do it again.She will lovingly and tenderly care for her child's development.,Always alert for every unusual little movement.A child will look to its mother for comfort and care,It just seems to know that mother will be there.She will give her all to help her child, her whole life through, Yet, we are often unthankful for all that mothers do.So let her know how much you love her real well,For only that can YOU tell.For one day you'll wish you had, And it will be too late – how sad.

This poem is from J.H. Blackman

Thursday, September 17, 2009


I opened the mail box and there was a letter. Addressed to me, for my mom. My heart went heavy. I hate this. No responses necessary. I have these moments. I get through them. The only time I get worried is when feeling the grief, your not sure how long it will last and you can only pray it leaves fast. Shes my mother, of course I'm hurting.I'm not afraid to show that side.

Happy Birthday Mommy

Tomorrow is your birthday

Tomorrow is your birthday..oh how I wish you were here..
I miss your smile and your scent that I would hold so near..
This is the first time I don't have you near..
on this occasion that God gave me you.. for so many years..
God also created you to bring forth life to 7 wonderful, beautiful kids..
Such a beautiful mother you were..
and a beautiful mother I want to be..
because you planted the seed
that made me.. and my beautiful family.

Happy Birthday mommy. I miss you.

Love her Honorably...

Love her honorably

Exodus 20:12

Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.

This is binding as long as your mother lives. Another command says children, obey…non-binding when you leave home, but “honor” is different! If the husband is the head of the home, then the mother is the heart...don’t break her heart!

And remember the Bible says nothing about that qualification…it only asks, is she your mother!

It’s the only one of the 10 commandments which includes a built-in promise of blessing!

Complaining why you didn't have a mother who raised you and maybe you had to be raised by someone else?
Open your eyes and realize that she is a good unselfish mother. She knew she couldn't care for you,so she had to leave. Always love your mother. Faults and all. Don't throw stones. You don't know what a mother is really battling. She doesn't say it all. She can't.Thats how we are designed.

I Am My Mother's Keeper

Who will cook for me when I forget how to cook?

Who will feed me when I forget how to pick up a spoon?

Who will take care of me when I'm sick and take me to the doctors?

Who will dress me when I can't move?

Who will clean me when I get dirty?

Who will love me when I start to change?

Who will be there and not forget me?

Who will pray for me when I can't pray for myself?

Who will love me nomatter what?

Who will remember who I was?

Who will know that I can't control this disease?

How to make life easier for the both of you..

These things can help in making life easier as this disease progresses..

*While they can still sign their name,make sure someone responsible is designated to have power of attorney.You can buy these forms at office supply places or the internet.Have it notarized.
*Make pre-arrangements with funeral home.Its better to make the arrangements when your mind is clear,not when it actually happens.
*Join a support group or mentor
*Put a plastic over the mattress,then put the fitted sheet on
*Put a towel under them when they sit on the sofa
*Make sure you take your loved one to the bathroom before bed time
*Buy "Depends"
*Have certain times for everyday things such as, bath time,bed time,breakfast,snack,lunch,dinner,etc. Have a set routine.It makes it easier to say, its lunch time now. They will get use to the schedule and having a schedule will help in staying on task.
*If you keep them home,hire a HHA or CNA to help you with somethings or enroll them in an adult day care
*If you choose a nursing home,then make sure you do visits weekly,know the staff,attend care plan meetings and label your loved ones things. buy them their own items such as,tearless shampoo,lotion,etc. Let the nursing home know that you want to be called if anything minor and major ahppens. Give them all your telephone numbers.
*Skin gets very dry with certain meds,so be sure to look at their skin and keep it moisturized.if you need to make an appt with the dermatologist, do so.Check behind the ears for chafting as well.
*Have podiatrist take care of their feet.Swelling and other foot problems may occur.
*Massage legs gently
*Assist in hygiene or make sure you know the bathing times that the nursing home does. Always check your loved ones.Bring them their favorite snack when you visit:)
*Buy tank tops or comfortable bras. Comfortability is the key.
*Buy pants that has elastic waist
*Buy nurse shoes.There very comfortable
*If falling becomes a problem, add bed rails to the bed
*Add vitamins,minerals and fiber with their regular meds
*If their losing weight,ask the dr if they recommend ensure or an extra drinking supplement or supplement pudding
*Buy simple games such as connect four,simple puzzles,coloring books,etc.Assist them and prompt them where to put the pieces and let them win connect four, make it fun!Sometime its all about them putting the pieces in the connect four and starting over.It helps with being figity. Also play dough helps with hand grip strengthening.
*Read to your loved one.
*Play music they like
***More tips coming soon!


If you notice a sudden fever, please do not just put it off as a cold and leave untreated.Also make sure you keep doctor appts and dentist appts. Gum disease can cause heart problems and other health problems. They may not want to go,but you have to take them, for there own good. Your loved one may not be able to communicate with you properly about what exactly is bothering them. It can be many things including a U.T.I. if left untreated can cause big problems. I remember I went to go see my mom at the nursing home and something told me,that she is not feeling well.I called the nurse and asked the nurse how she is doing and she said she was good. I told the nurse,just take her temp please. I was right, there was something wrong.
My mother had a U.T.I. It was 3 years ago and she was hospitalized for 2 weeks.She also developed pulmonary problems at the sametime. I just had my second neck surgery and I stayed with her in the hospital. Nothing,not even sickness kept me away from being with my mom. I'm glad I went that day to see her.I was in a neck brace and in alot of pain but I was drawn to my mom that particular day.
When she was released,she lost the ability to walk.The dementia was getting worse.

*If your love ones "balance" is starting to be a problem, they need 24 hour supervision.

Its important to test now..

Having blood work done can do alot of preventing or delaying of alzheimers. People that have complained about fatigue,weight gain,moodiness during the winter months have been linked with a thyroid disorder, hypothyrodism-a condition that if left untreated,can lead to dementia later in life. Recent studies were performed from harvard researchers. Thyroid hormones may regulate the production of a protein called amyloid,which could cause damage brain cells. Ask your doctor for a blood test if your sluggish or have any of the symptoms as stated. Do not leave untreated.

As Mothers Day approaches..

I have been in an emotional state of mind since my mother passed away,
Feb 13th, 2009. I went to a memorial service at the nursing home that she spent her few years being sick. It was very emotional for me and I couldn't stop crying. Entering that building again and knowing that I'm not going to the second floor to see her, was overwhelming for me. Writing about it is helping me. It is truly a journey what one goes through when losing their mother. Very emotional and having your heart feel heavy and no one showing they care. They ignore you probably because they just donot know what to say. For those that are not sure what to say, the best thing to do is just be there to just listen and be there for them. Let them do the talking. When we vent, we allow our emotions to come out,which is a good thing instead of having it suppressed which can turn into depression. Donot say things like,"it will stop hurting in time". Speak in the present. They are going through this Now. They have every right to feel the way they do, it was their mother. Know when to seek intervention if you notice the person is depressed. Take them to the doctor for some preventative help,if it gets worse. You can also seek help from your clergy or a hospice clergy is a great counselor. They are experienced with dealing with death.The person that is grieving will not say when they need someone to console them, you have to be observant.Instead of ignoring them,be there for them in their time of need.

Today I woke up Thankful. I shared some feelings on "I'm Sorry" and I shared some feelings on "A Mother", on here. Now I will share my "Thank You".

Thank you mommy for taking care of me when I was sick.

Thank you mommy for making sure I eat.

Thank you mommy for putting a roof over my head.

Thank you mommy for teaching me how to cook.

Thank you mommy for making my clothes.

Thank you mommy for teaching me how to use my talents.

Thank you mommy for teaching me tough love.

Thank you mommy for teaching me how to defend myself.

Thank you mommy for protecting me.

Thank you mommy for raising me.

Thank you mommy for the years.

Thank you mommy for being my mommy.

Most importantly,I Thank you God for giving me such a Beautiful Mother I had the priviledge to have her for 38 1/2 years. I understand you had to take her back.
Help me when I feel Lost.

**Happy Mothers Day.

No matter what you say or what you do to me I will succeed
I won't let anything, anyone make me think I can't succeed
My children will be proud that Mommy never let anyone hold her down
from being the best I can be
BecauseI will succeed
My children, as well, will succeed
because I planted that seed
that whatever you want to be you will be
I will succeed!
