Not anymore. I lost my mother on Friday. It was surreal since she was not ill and exercised nearly every day. She experienced a massive heart attack during her morning walk. I was stunned at the lost. She had been the one anchor in my life. She stood by me when I wanted to major in music (on trumpet I might add). She competed with me for grades when in my junior year she went for her college degree (in Education). I always said she could win since she never partied. Ultimately though, my GPA was just a little better than hers was. She was the parent that understood.
My father died of cancer the day before my first grandson was born, it made his life and passing mean something. We actually name my grandson after my father. My mother died after celebrating in Washington DC the first black President, Barack Obama, it made her life as an American mean just a little more as well. She and I grew up in a segregated America. She and I moved beyond it to think in terms of what we do rather than who we once were. I loved my mother. I will always love my mother.
I had planned a recipe for today but my heart just isn't in it.
My Mom never met anyone from Broadvox but she always listened as I explained what they/we did. SIP Trunking she never got, but she did know the ILECs were the enemy. It has been only a few days but I miss her. I was not prepared to lose her. There will be no blog on Wednesday, because I have to say goodbye to her then. There will be no blog on Friday because I need to spend time with my siblings and extended family. I will return next Monday with a SIP blog and perhaps a recipe.
Mom and Dad can save the world no more.
Goodbye Mom and Dad.
I love you both.
May God Bless You All!
