Happy Birthday Mama – Part 2

Happy Birthday Mama – Part 2

Mom always made me feel I could do anything and when I felt down and a bit defeated she would always find a way to make me feel better. Mom was wise, forgiving and loving. I miss her every day but I feel her in me. I see her in my hands as I grow older and I see her in my face and I hear her in my voice. I am my Mother’s daughter and for that I am eternally grateful! How I wish I could talk with her now. I am 67. My life is beautiful but I want to ask her about “these years”. How to navigate the “back nine” as my brother Brent calls it. Mom was a very young 84 when she passed away. In spite of health issues, she made the most of every day whether she was planting flowers in her garden, visiting with friends or playing with her grand-children that beautiful smile never faded. I want to ask her how she did it? I want to know her secrets, I want to hear all those stories I was too busy to appreciate when I was younger. I want to let her know that she is THE BEST MOM any child could ever hope for. I want to feel her gentle touch and have her tell me one more time, “It’s all right”, and it WAS!!! I miss you Mom. I love you to the moon and back a million times. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

XOXO,

Susie

Daddy… October 27 – Part 1

Daddy… October 27 – Part 1

Today my father, Wally Anton, would have turned 93. Daddy passed away on June 6, 2002, D-Day. He was 77. It was too soon but we were all so grateful to have had him for all those years. My Dad survived two wars, WWII and Korea. He served with the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department until he retired. He was a man of great integrity, kindness, humor and love. Love for his wife, Lou Ellen, his children, Greg, Susie, Brent, Peggy and Todd and his many grandchildren. Love for his community and love for his country. He also LOVED the DODGERS!!! So here we are, it’s fall and his BOYS IN BLUE are once again in the World Series. I know he is smiling down with that twinkle in his clear blue eyes. He is watching the games with his sweetheart, our Mom and they have the best seats to all the games. It makes me smile and warms my heart. My Daddy was the hardest working man I ever knew. He always had more than one job and if a neighbor or a stranger needed help he was the first one there to assist. He was an affectionate man and showed my brothers that it was okay for a man to cry, hug another man and say, “I love you”. He was humble about his own accomplishments but eager to share with anyone how proud he was of his beautiful wife and family.
