~I'll be seeing you~

My Mama....November 15, 1922 - May 2, 2007

May 2 Nd is always a hard day for me..As it's the day I lost the most important person in my life..My Mama she truly was the finest Mom a daughter could of ever asked for..She loved me unconditionally. She was the leader of my fan club always there to encourage me no matter what I was doing..I so remember when I learned to fly and talked her into going out flying with me lol! I swear she never opened her eyes or unclasped
her hands from the minute we left the run way until we touched down ha ha!! I can still see her sitting there in the passenger seat with her sweet smile and her eyes closed..
She always told me I could do anything..Just believe in God first and then yourself and it will come to you..Any time I got down..My Mama would tell me there enough pity in this world "Gloria you don't need too add to it"..
Did I ever tell you guys I had my first child when I was 16..Oh I was married to a bum but I was married..By the time I had my first child I was back living with my Mama..My Mama was 36 at that time and hold everything she also was expecting my youngest brother..My daughter is 4 months older than my brother ha ha!! She made room in her home for me and my daughter..So here we are 2 new mothers with 2 new babies..Now I bet alot of you can't say you fed your brother a bottle and your daughter at the same time.. My Mama's heart was bigger than her home..I miss you so much Mama, I miss your humor, I miss your love, I miss your sweet smile, But I really miss you here to encourage me each day!!

My Wally....February 10, 1934- May 2, 1999

And then we have my life's love Wally..He's having lunch with my mama today...He was the love of my life for over 31 years..He make me laugh, smile and enjoy each day we had together..
It's been 13 years today since God called him home..sighs.So as you can tell May 2 Nd is a double hitter for me..So many memories going on within my head and heart..







I Miss you more with each passing day... ♥ BUT I"LL BE SEEING YOU
May all of you have a Blessed day...

Hugs and Smiles Glria

Oh Gloria,
You touched me so much with this post. I am so sorry for your losses and yet I know you celebrate their lives and time with you too.
Here's to your wonderful Momma and love of your life hubby!
Super Big Hugs today,

Helen said...

Dear Gloria,
I will keep you close in my thoughts today ... I lost my father when I was just 16 on May 4th and my mother in 2007 on May 14th ... May is hard for me too. Something we share.

Courtney ~ French Country Cottage said...

What a touching post Gloria. Keeping you in thoughts today my friend and sending some hugs your way too.

Lynne (lynnesgiftsfromtheheart) said...

Hi darling, I would love to have met your mother and Wally, I know they were wonderful people. I can feel the love you had for both. Sending out lots of love, thoughts and hugs to you on this day. Would love to be there to share many a cup of coffee and a long chat.. hugs ~lynne~

NanaDiana said...

Well, now you know that I am sitting here with tears coursing down my cheeks. How sad to have lost two such special people on the very same day of the month. Maybe that is so you only have one day of heavy grieving every year instead of two separate ones. Blessings and peace for your heart- xo Diana

NanaDiana said...

I forgot to say what a beautiful woman your mother was and your hubby was very handsome.

Mid-Atlantic Martha said...

What a sweet post Gloria. Your mama sounds like a wonderful woman! I miss mine everyday. Sending sweet thoughts to your side of the moundain.

Richard Cottrell said...

Oh Ms. Gloria. Your sweet mother was beautiful and looks like she was very stylish. There is nothing like a Mothers love. Kinda like an old mother chicken, put those wings out and chase you off if you come after her chicks. Some day you and I both will be re-united with our dear Mama's. Richard from My Old Historic House.

Barb @ The Everyday Home said...

((((hugs))))) dear friend. This is an incredibly touching post, and whether or not you intended it to - it made me guilty for not calling my Mama all week. So I stopped, and picked up the phone and said "Hey Mama, I'm sorry I haven;t called you." She said, 'Thats ok I know you love me." Boy do I ever. I am so blessed to still have both of my parents with me. Thank you for this gentle reminder to call the ones you love and tell them you love them while you still can. xxoo

Madeline's Album said...

What a beautiful post. Your mother was a beautiful woman. I hope you are doing well. Thank you for stopping by and saying hi. I am doing well and my husband is hanging in there, he has his good days and his bad days. Have a blessed day and take care. Madeline

The Decorative Dreamer said...

Oh Gloria! To loose two of those whom you love the most on the same day must be very hard. On the other hand I am glad to hear you do know that God has them safely in his care and again someday you will join them both! Take care dear sweet Lady! Your mother was so pretty! And from the way you write I can tell your Mama taught you well. You have a lot of her in you too! Hugs!

Special 'K' said...

Thinking of you. I know how difficult these days can be. Chin up Thank you for sharing I do hope our thoughts and prays help. Cheers SpecialK XoXo

Confessions of a Plate Addict said...

Oh sweet Gloria...I don't know why but I never realized that you lost them both on the same date! No wonder this is a hard day for you. I wish I lived closer so I could give you a hug. I know that you are surrounded by your loving family to do that, though. I know a little baby hug from my little sweeties goes a long way so I am hoping you got to have little Landen in your arms today. I have to say it again, your courage is an inspiration to me, dear friend! Sending special hugs your way today...Debbie

Linda (Nina's Nest) said...

Gloria, what a sweet and touching post. It is so difficult to be separated from our loved ones, but thankfully, it is a temporary separation. What a tender and loving tribute to both of them. May God bless you! Linda

Judy at GoldCountryCottage said...

Oh, Gloria: I'm so sorry for your losses. I can see you still miss them so much. As a young girl, I lost my favorite Aunt on April 1. I hated it because while everyone else was making April Fool's jokes, I was miserable. Who was to know that we would lose our son many years later on April 1. You will never forget them, but will always remember the good times you had with your angels.Take care my dear friend..Judy

Yvonne @ StoneGable said...

What a touching tribute to your Mom and Wally!

May all of your memories of them be happy ones!

How blessed you were to have such an awesome Mom Gloria- I can see why you would miss her so much. We all need cheerleaders in our life and don't often seem to be alot of them around!

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Gloria, This is such a beautiful tribute to your loved ones. I am sending you big hugs.
xo, Sherry

Rebecca Nelson said...

OK...I can barely compose myself.

First...I love how you love your mother and husby. Today I feel like sometimes parents are cast aside and many, tho not all, marriages fail for not nearly serious enough reasons. Knowing your beloved and your precious mother are in heaven together makes me leap for joy.

Second...thank you for visiting me. I gulped big when I saw your name....miss you.


Marty@A Stroll Thru Life said...

Shelia said...

Oh, Dear Sweet Gloria, what a beautiful tribute to your Mama and Wally! How wonderful to love and be loved as you have been. I'm saying a special prayer for you today and pray God will love you in the way on He can. You are so special and even though we've never met, you are my friend.
Love you,
Shelia :)

Oh Gloria, what a beautiful, heart-felt post. I have tears in my eyes. Your mother was beautiful and sounds like the pefect mom, and what a good looking man Wally was, and I know from all you've shared in the past, he was a wonderful man. It's so amazing that you lost both of them on the same date, years apart. Sending you love and hugs, sweet friend. laurie
