Wish I had said more...

Mom passed away day before Thanksgiving. She had a bold, glorious & adventurous life living to almost 92. In her own words, "My end here will be with no regrets." While celebrating her life, I find myself wishing I had told her more often how much she meant to me---how much I loved her.

...Food for thought.

Bingo...my mom has been gone for decades now. All I can tell you is that the loss will always hurt. But given time, it will hurt less.

Don't, it is a fools errand: In two sentences you were able to capture the essence of a person who knew you.

Love only needs to be verbal to the needy, she doesn't appear to have been.

I'm sorry for your loss. Your mom's words are inspiring. I think she knew.

May we all live well.

I'm sorry for your loss. I'm sure many of us have wished we had said more after it's too late. I believe many people, especially moms, intuit how we feel without the need for a lot of words. Still, I know the regretful feeling of things left unsaid.

Well said.

Like everyone lucky enough to have been raised by loving parents, I often wish I could share a thought or ask them a question. I do realize just how lucky I am to have two parents that were married for over 50 years, and always had food to eat, and a warm safe home to live in. Parents that loved me. Born in the USA, in the land of the free. Damn lucky indeed.

Sure, we all do: Love is different. If you need affirmation best of luck.

As a parent I had to adjust my children's behavior at times, no kind words spoken. But they knew I loved them.

To the OP: She knew, that was my point, inelegantly articulated.

She certainly did, and IMHO, she shared those thoughts you mention to attest to the fact that she knows you love her!!

The pain of not having Mom or Dad to physically share, is like being homesick; you know where home is, but can't be there at the time. Home is Mom and Dad.
