    Ravin, this is beautiful and very toughing. It’s okay to be sad. Remember the love, the laughter, the important moments, and feel the hugs that transcend all.

    Thank you L Richards (adorable litty by the way :) ) I do remember, and it’s a kind of bittersweet sadness, if that makes any sense.

    Beautiful pick, Ravin! My heart goes out to you. I can’t imagine what it would be like to loose my Mom. These are all her favorite colors too.

    It’s a lovely pick to remember your mom, Ravin.

    My dad has been gone 25 years, and I still miss him tremendously and cry. It’s definitely okay to be sad.

    Ravin, what a gorgeous pick to honor your mom! I know how hard it is. My mom will have been gone 1 year on Oct. 30. I still think of her and miss her every day. It gets easier in some ways, but it’s still hard to think that we won’t be making any new memories together. Guess that’s why we have to make them while we can and hold on tightly to them. My thoughts, prayers, and hugs are being sent to you, my friend.

    It’s good to see you back here — we’ve all missed you and been concerned about you. :)

  10. Vampire Chickie Ravin
    Vampire Chickie Ravin says:

    Thanks so much LE…And I agree, so hard knowing we can no longer make memories together, but I do so cherish the ones I have. I’ve missed being here. Some issues going on right now, plus weather, plus debilitating headaches due to the weather, have all been conspiring to limit my computer time…meh…it’ll get better, heh

    So glad to know nothing bad has happened to keep you away from us, Ravin. Take care — hugs to you! :)

    Vampire Chickie Ravin says:

    Nah, nothing too bad, nothing that can’t be dealt with given time, patience, and perseverance, lol ;)

    Mom’s are special people. I am sorry you lost yours but she left you with incredible talent for choosing colors!

  14. Vampire Chickie Ravin
    Vampire Chickie Ravin says:

    Thank you Angela! Yah, my mom was sooooo incredibly creative and artistic! She did the interior and exterior, plus extensive landscaped gardens at her and my stepdads home. Even though I’m adopted, I have no dubt that my own creativity is thanks to her.

  15. Vampire Chickie Ravin
    Vampire Chickie Ravin says:

    On the way home from her funeral, there was this amazing sunset, all purples, pinks, golds, oranges, and reds, just streaking the sky. My step dad, George looked at it, then looked at me and said “I see that, and I know your mom is up there with her paint brush just having a blast.”

    DOG Chick aka Angela says:

    Shannon M says:

    By the choice of colors, your mom must have been a passionate person that was trustworthy and dynamic. From the photos, I think your mom would have loved and treasured anything made with these stones. You did a great job!

    Vampire Chickie Ravin says:

    Thank you Shannon, she was, and would have. I wish I could’ve made something for her before she passed.
