    This sounds like a darling book for kids. My son still remembers when his stuffed whale went to the hospital (never to come out) for a burst seam! Sigh.

    I’m so sorry about your mom. I think of mine most days and even imagine she is there when I hear errant sounds or shadows. It brings me much comfort.

    Beautiful post. My parents love just driving too, so much so that they’re selling their house and traveling the US in a trailer starting this fall.

    I’m so sorry for your loss! I go home and visit my parents in my memories, too.

    You seem to have rich memories of both parents – and the short story adds a deeper level of reflection. Thanks for sharing, Juneta .

    Congratulations to Elaine for the release.

    That was a beautiful post.

    Going home in memories. That’s so true. Both of my parents have passed on and I sometimes miss home. It’s better think of still being able to go home- if only just in memory.

    So hard to lose a parent so young! Your story really seemed to capture the feeling–or the inability to feel, to think, or anything. Losing a parent is never easy, but 17 is such a vulnerable age. Thanks for sharing the memories and joining the hop.

    How sad. My grandfather died in January 1981 as well–I wasn’t born yet, so I never met him–but my dad has talked about how it was a shock that Grandpa went so fast.

    So sorry that you lost your mom so young. My daughter lost her dad (my late husband) at that age too.

    I lost my father years ago and was by his side when he left us. My mother is still with us, at least in body, but her memory has been failing her the last couple of years. She still tells some fabulous stories from the past, but her short term memory is failing. She lives hundred of miles away and won’t be visiting tsunny Florida this year, so a trip to the north may be in order. Thanks for sharing your mom and Elaine’s cute book.

    I lost my father when I was 11 and surreal is the perfect word to describe it.

    Losing your mom is such a traumatic event, esp. at a young age. I was much older when Mom passed, but I still feel her loss. Hugs.

    I’m sorry for your loss. Your post has touched me.

    “Mama said we were never lost because we could always find our way home.” I love that!

    Thanks for participating in the hop!
