Tomorrow ~ August 25, 2011

Tomorrow in 1968 my mom passed away.  So many years ago but it still makes me sad!
School starts tomorrow so I will be heading back to work.  As always I am really nervous. This year especially because I will be working with two new teachers.  Plus a lot of changes have been made at my school and with the budject cuts that means more duties for me.
Wish me luck!  I'm trying to be postive but I think it will be a hard day!
Maybe I'll get those Europe pictures up some day.

After years pass, I always feel a spurt of anger. "Okay. It's been long enough. GET BACK HERE!"

eternity isn't fair.

I understand how you will be thinking of your mom tomorrow....I know we have talked before about that my mom died just a few years before yours. As long as it has been it is still very hard sometimes.
I hope the school day goes well.

Anniversaries are always hard for me, too. I will be thinking of you and wishing you well, hoping for a great teaching year, Gayle.

Your post reminds me that my mom died 31 years ago today. I usually think more about her two weeks from now, on her birthday. But yes, it's still sad and I still think of her often. As for your new year at school, I wish for you the same thing I wish for my daughter, who's back to school Monday: that something surprising and unexpected will make this a wonderful and rewarding year.

I hope work starting again is not as stressful as you fear.

Some hurt never goes away, it's just a reminder of how much you loved someone.

I don't think you ever get over losing your mom; its been 28 years and I still miss her intensely. Big hugs....I understand...we all understand. Write and let us know about "the first day" at school.

Sending hugs. I love my mom almost four years ago so I know how painful that is.

Hoping you had a good first day back to school!

It's hard when we remember the day we lost a loved one. But you'll be busy with the start of school and they changes. I hope its a good day!

It's always hard to come back to harsh reality after a dream vacation.
Good luck going back to the old grind.

Sorry I'm late to comment. I'm sad for the loss of your mom-- I know it's not easy. BUt, I hope school is a great year for you and the changes are easier than they appear. We don't start school here until Sept. 7th!

I am finding it so hard to keep up with the blogs I really enjoy this summer. It is interesting to come here and see your tribute to your mother and I have one to mine on my blog also. I am sure it is something we never get used to. So many days, I want to call her or just sit beside her again and talk to her.
Hoping your first couple of days at school went without a hitch.

In answer to your question: PEPSI is my totally private blog where I usually have a rant about one kid or another! Today I was having a rant about our Daughter Lacy...her latest 'partner' told Brylee over the phone that Lacy was her ONLY MOTHER and we were just her Grandparents. In fact we have had Brylee and Griffin from birth and are their only 'parents'. Lacy has only been a fleeting visitor in their lives. So I was very cross that this total stranger had the audacity to talk to Brylee like that!
So, there ya go. You don't miss much by not reading PEPSI! lol
It's only me ranting and raving.
My OUTLET for frustrations.

I lost my mom in 1964, it was such a shock..The rest of my life I have tried to be sweet like she was to everyone..she loved everyone never judged and was so kind and loving, esp. the tiny babies and toddlers, she never met a stranger and always had food for anyone who needed the food, coffee, tea or whatever and someone to listen and help them a real saint on this earth, I favor her in coloring she was from Spain and gorgeous, she left this earth to heaven too too soon, it never gets any better..I think the new school year will be fabulous to one so caring and loving..think about my e-mail and know you will do just fine, Love your blog you are such a peaceful loving human being closer to the Lord than most..happy school year and hugs for your anniversary, I will pray that the good Lord will keep you close to his heart tomorrow and the whole school year...
