Compliment and I Forgot Them

This morning as I sit here while Carly is taking a short nap I still have last Friday on my mind. I think maybe if I write down what I feel maybe I will feel better. So here goes.........

I know being a BLM is difficult. I never know what to say when this question pops up. I know a lot of my BLM friends have blogged about this same issue.

Last Friday I had to run over to Walgreens to pick up a couple things. There was a lady at the check out who I have seen before and she seems really nice. It was nice out a bit windy that day and she said I just have to tell you your a wonderful Mom. I sorta looked at her funny & said Thank you. She went on to say how I see you walk everyday to get the children from school as long as the weather is great. I told her I enjoy walking it gets Carly & I out of the house. Then comes the question ????? Are those all your children ???? Before I knew it I already said it Yes they are all mine. She went on to say I don't see how you do and they cost a lot of money. I told her God provides. She smiled and agreed. She left & so did I. On the way home I thought about what she said about me being a good Mom & how that made me smile. Then I thought about how I left my other kids out that live in Heaven. What a Mom am I ??? Someone thought I was terrific cause I care & am always there for my kids. I felt bad inside. I know they are there and I love them. I just never know what someone is going to say & I guess that's the part I don't wanta have to deal with. I have had to deal with that before and sometimes it's not real pretty. Well I feel better now. So my little vent is over.

Riley , Little Muffin & Sweet Pea ,
Mommy loves you more than you know. I wish so many times more than you know that you all were here with us. I wish when I went to the store I could buy you something. I could go get you at school. I wish we could go on a trip together. I would be happy just to hear you in our home. I know One wonderful day we will be able to do all that as a family in Heaven. I just wish it was now. Just know your never forgotten , always in our hearts. XXXOOO

Love you

You are a great mom! And I don't think you forgot them at all just by the way she worded the question. ((Hug))

You are a wonderful mom!
I agree with Holly. The women asked if they were all your children you said, yes...those she can see and yes to those she can't so you did a great job sweetie.(((HUGS)))

Wow, what I wouldn't give to be paid a compliment like that!!!!!

I wouldn't feel bad about "leaving out" the three in heaven. I'm positive they're not upset with you at all. They aren't able to feel anything bad only good, only love for you.

I think you are a great mom! ~Debbie

You definitely are a great mum... and remembering to think of your other children not with you at moments like these shows how great a mum you are to them too. Not mentioning them is understandable.. I agree her question was about the kids you walk with past the shop - the other three walk with you in your heart xoxo

you are a great mom, Caroline! your love for all your children always shines through as you write aobut them and their accomplishments. I think you do the best too representing your children waiting for you in heaven. Sometimes there isn't enough time to explain adequately to a clerk or a passerby all of our story but that doesn't mean those precious ones aren't in your thoughts.

I think it was a wonderful compliment... and God knows that you are a wonderful mom to all of your children. He just allowed the woman to see what you do everyday and to appreciate it :)
