My Mom

I don't want to go to bed.  I am here all by myself and all I want to do is think about my Mom.  She passed away tonight.  I was making plans to go to be with her but at 8:45 my time, she passed. I am blessed to have had my Mother.  I will always cherish the things she taught me.  Most of all I will will cherish her example of strength.  Strength that she got from God.  She battled cancer for a long time and had a positive attitude right to the end.
My wise husband said that the moment she entered Heaven she wondered why she hung on to this life!

Carol Jean Chivers gone to be with the Lord 9/4/11 at the age of 76.

My next post will be all Cardi related- promise.


  1. Hugs, Rita. It is so difficult to let them go, even when we know the reasons and are expecting that it is time. Bless you and your family.

  2. You will always miss her, but she will always be with you, as well. Our moms teach us more than we know, and that is a gift above price. Wish I could be there to give you a real hug!

  3. I'm so sorry for your loss. My father passed away a year ago after a long battle with cancer...even when you're "expecting" it, it is never easy. My thoughts are with you, and with your newest guardian angel. :-)

  4. Oh, Rita, I am so sorry to hear this. Please know that you are in our prayers as your grieve the loss of your mother. May your mother's soul, and the souls of all the departed, rest in God's eternal peace. Blessings and love, Betsy (and David) Powell

  5. Oh Rita, I'm SO very sorry to hear of your loss of your mother. :( You're in my prayers....
