These are some of the photos on here I find intriguing enough to type a minimum of 100 words about...
 It seems like I'm predisposed to find dead bodies... I don't know if it's Gods little joke on me, but I fail to see the humor in this. On April 22nd I found my mother dead laying face down... My mother had suffered for over 20 years with C.O.P.D  and congestive heart failure. Living about 15 years past her expiration date.

April 21st was my wife's birthday. We had an awesome night full of laughter & smiles... My mother sat on the end of my bed with my Wife, nephew and I before bed. My youngest son was asleep and we were talking about how chunky he is and laughing at his little sausage fingers. My mother brushed his long hair from his eyes and rubbed his cheek gently, Quinn smiled softly and rolled over. I was dead tired and decided to go to bed. We said our "I love yous" and the lights went out... I woke up around 9am & sat on my davenport for a little bit before checking on my mother as-per-usual. She was fine, sleeping good with a good snore... I checked on her again at 11am, she was always a night owl so I left her sleeping, and still snoring. My wife goes to help out at her church at 2pm and I decided I'd take a little nap... 

My wife came home and woke me up, it was 6pm. I seen my nephew pass by and I asked him if he'd seen his grandma at all today and he replied that he checked on her about 3pm and she was sleeping. I go to the kitchen & begin making dinner. We were having burritos. My dad came out of their room and came to the kitchen and waited for me to finish making their plates. I gave him his plate and carried my mothers plate to her room. Entering the room, Mom is still "sleeping" in pretty much the same position as when I seen her last at 11am. Come to think of it I didn't think anything about her not snoring. That should of been my first clue, cause she had sleep apnea. I walk to her side of the bed (she slept at the foot of the bed, closest to the fan) and rubbed her arm gently, like I always do. Her shoulder was ice cold, but I didn't think anything of it because  (A). We live in South Texas, Our Air Conditioning stays on all year long. &  (B). She sleeps super close to the fan, her c.o.p.d. always made  her feel like she wasnt getting enough breath. She usually rouse(s) by mine rubbing her shoulder. And if she doesn't, I then kiss her forehead & that always woke her because of my beard.

She didn't flinch one bit. I then nudge her, gently rocking her... Nothing. I began calling out to her "MOM, MOM! MAAAAAA!" still nothing. My dad and I both at the same time begin saying "no no no no no" I ran out of my mothers room, down the hall to my nephews room & opened the door yelling to him "SHES GONE!!!" "What do you mean shes gone" he said him thinking she was just messed up from her night meds and sleep meds and taken off in my vehicle... and I told him "SHES DEAD!!!" He stood up and ran down the hall way to her room burst the door open and rolled her over... She had been dead long enough for lividity to set in. Her face was dark purple from the blood pooling up beneath her skin. her tongue was hanging out of her mouth. I can not get the image out of my head. I have tons of photographs of my mother, but the mental image of my mother that instant is what's in my head. It's fucking with me; tormenting my every thought. Invading personal space in my head and driving me more insane than I already am. A major piece of me died with her. I've spent all but two years of my life with her. Protecting her. I'll be 40 this year. My mother's birthday was two days before my own. Hers was Sep the 17th, mine was the 19th... We always met in the middle and celebrated together on the 18th. 

I want to grab the 16 year old me & beat the shit outta me for every time I cussed her. Or told her I hated her outta anger. I want to tell him how precious that woman is to me and to be gentle with her orphan heart. I want to grab the 21 year old me and kick the shit outta him for cussing her and making her worry, and to forgive & love her unconditionally & thank her often. I want to grab  me  at 31 year old self and say beg her not to move away. Beg her to stay & I'd like to split my own lip for making her feel like she needed to move. I want to thank the 35 year old me for finally growing up and making her come home. I want to thank him for giving her the best remaining years she could of had. I want to thank him for letting her fall in love with all 4 of my children before it was too late. But most of all. I'd gladly give up both arms and legs & eyes to have her back right now. even for 5 minutes.

Regret is a bitch. I did it to myself. No other excuses. Love your parents like you're gonna lose them, because you will.
