New Phone Line
Posted 4/28/2011 5:25:00 PM
Today is my dear mother's birthday, my lovely mother Dorothea. My mom passed away five years ago, but to this day I still go to my cell phone sometimes in the car to call her on my way home from the station as I did every night.
Boy did I love my mom. She was the classiest, sharply dressed, kind and believe it or not coolest mother. We had the house on the street where all the kids came over to hang out and play. We had the house with all the parties, any excuse for a party. Mom loved to entertain. Everyone loved Dorothea. I miss her so damn much. You know that ache you feel when you really miss someone. So every once in a while, especially on a day like today, mom's birthday, I long for a phone line to heaven. I won't even talk that long, just long enough to say happy birthday and I love you and miss you, and a quick "hi" to dad too with the same I love and miss you. What I would give for that phone line. Happy birthday mom!

    Dan, I know exactly how you feel! You sound like a son, a mother would be proud of! I lost my mother to liver cancer, in 1992, and to this day, I still miss her deeply. My father had passed away in 1987, unexpectedly. I miss him just as much. I feel like there's always something missing in my life, and I know, it's them! They weren't just my parents, they were my best friends. Happy Birthday to your mom! She sounds like a really special mom.

    OMG,Dan just wanted to cry reading this. I feel the same way about my dad, I miss him and it will be six years in May. There are some many things I want to say to him. Next time you pick up the phone and have a out loud conversation with your mom, god bless her.

    Thinking of you!! I know exactly how you feel. My mom was my best friend and on June 9th it will be the one year anniversary of her death. I just got married (2nd marriage) on April 23rd at Fenway Park and it rained so i'm thinking she was bringing me luck or maybe crying happy tears. Happy Birthday to your mom!! I know they are in a good place now.. We cry for ourselves now and not for our dear loved one who was suffering.
