Missing Mom...

Recommended Posts

My Mom passed when I was 17 years old. It's been nearly 9 years now... she had a very rough life and passed away from cirrhosis of the liver. A very hard and sad way to go. When she died, I saw a butterfly fly away. That is my guiding spirit now.

 

Martin and I just got back from celebrating Mother's Day with his Mom. It all of a sudden hit us that we are leaving for our wedding 1 week from TUESDAY!!!

 

Mom, I miss you so much, and I pray that you will be there in spirit on our wedding day to see what a wonderful, caring and brilliant man I chose to spend the rest of my life with.

 

I'm in tears right now, but it's not all sad... just very emotional.

 

I decided the other day to make my something old a gift from my Grandma - she had my parents wedding bands melted down and remade into a pinkie ring for me. It doesn't fit but I have a pouch on my garter belt to hold my "sixpence". I hope I can find that ring and that it will fit into the pouch as well so that I can carry a part of my mom through the ceremony... cry.gif

 

Mom, I love you...

oh girl I love you! I had a rough day too. My dad died 10 years ago today. It was a rough mommas day. Its so hard this year cause all I can think about is I'm getting married in a couple months and he won't be there to walk me down the aisle. I've spent alot of time on the phone w/ my grandma (what a rough day to celebrate being a mother on the 10 yr anniversary of your youngest childs death), and my lil sis. She's always had a rough time when the anniversary comes around and she's preggers so its kinda her 1st mothers day.

 

I'm here for you girl! You're momma will be there!

aww jaime, i just totally cried reading this. *hugs* i think the ring on your garter belt will be a really sweet and personal way to carry her with you. i have to ask, are you incorporating butterflies in your wedding at all? i think it could be another really beautiful way to honor her memory without being too sad on your happy day. i know she will be smiling down upon your wedding, and as others have said, so very proud of the woman you've become!

Jaime and Jacilyn I am 150% sure that your parents will be with you on your wedding days. It is always the holidays, milestones and important events that hurt the most -- when you start to wish those we've lost were with us to share in those special moments. But I truly do think our loved ones are always looking down at us during those times, showering us with love, sunshine and all the happiness in the world*

This was my mom's first mother's day without my grandmother and this father's day will be my FI's first without his father. It's super hard. Sending you big hugs!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
