Thought For The Day

Today’s quotes surround the subject of when both parents are now gone, something a number of people I know are going through presently with recent deaths of either their mother or father…

“The death of any loved parents is an incalculable lasting blow. Because no one ever loves you again like that.” (Brenda Ueland)

“Hold dear to your parents for it is a scary and confusing world without them.” (Emily Dickinson) 

“I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life.” (Maya Angelou)

“My parents died a long time ago. And you know the sad thing? I still miss them every day. I spent my entire youth fighting with my dad over every little thing and damned if I wouldn’t give anything to see him one more time and tell him I was sorry for the last words I said to him. Words I can never taken back that should have never been said. So call your parents. No matter what kind of relationship you have with them, I swear to you, you’ll miss them when they’re gone.” (Sherrilyn Kenyon)

“Your parents give you many things in a lifetime, most of which you will never find appreciation for, regardless of whether they were positive or negative, until long after they are both gone…” (Andrew Arthur Dawson)

Peace, love, light, and joy,
