{Mom was only 50 days short of her 7th Dialysis Anniversary}

Mom was so very close to making it into a record for completing her 7th Dialysis Anniversary; only 50 days short!

My beautiful Mom, opening the front door of Afhangweg 8 in Horst, The Netherlands for my 'late' husband - on my wedding day. 
She is so happy looking and this is the house where she came back for her last breath.
Mom in Church on my wedding day, with my baby-brother Jan to the left...
It was on February 9, 1973...
Mom congratulating me after Church... 
Looking oh so happy and for sure she is now together in heaven with my late husband Frans...

Mom during the reception, where guests do present the gifts.
My Paternal Grandmother is seated here and the lady with the black/red dress was my aunt, married to Dad's younger brother. She too went to heaven after having had kidney problems and going through dialysis...

My hair was till my waist at that time!
I will show you my self made simple wedding dress another time.

“We should keep the dead before our eyes, and honor them as though still living” ― Confucius

The bitterest tears shed over graves are for words left unsaid and deeds left undone. - Harriet Beecher Stowe

Those that attacked us for NOT showing up at Mom's funeral, due to Pieter's health issues because of heart cramps, and me still going to rehab for my hand, we forgive their act of bitterness.
May they too find the Peace that is in our hearts!

  5. Hello Mariette, So nice to see these pictures of happy family events, in which your mother participated. The miracle of dialysis gave her almost seven more years of being with her family.

    1. Dearest Jim,
      Such happy family events are being preserved in a nice way through these precious photos! Indeed, the miracle of dialysis did extend Mom's life and we always have to keep in mind that such miracles are not being available to all people on this planet.
      Kindest regards,
      Mariette

    I don't remember reading about your late husband before. I'm sorry he had passed away. The wedding photos are beautiful. Love your dress and hair!

      Thank you and yes, I do treasure these lovely photos from my Mom very much. A happy smile yes and that's how I like to remember her in my memory; forgetting about the years she was ill.
      Life sometimes is sad for a number of people. My hair was a lot better looking than now but that's age related and very acceptable.
      Hugs,

  10. Wat tragisch dat je eerste man zo jong is gestorven. Wist niet dat je al eerder getrouwd was geweest. Je zag er prachtig uit en zo jong en dan dat prachtige haar, schitterend. Ik had in die tijd ook lang haar, moest als kind altijd kort haar hebben maar na mijn zestiende heb ik het jaren niet meer laten knippen. Mooie herinneringen aan je moeder, leuk dat je de foto's nog hebt om van de beelden te genieten.
    Groeten, Marianne

    1. Beste Marianne,
      Ja, al was ik in die tijd niet meer met hem getrouwd, het deed toch pijn om hem al zo vroeg te vertrekken uit dit leven; we deelden immers ook 12 jaren samen! Net drie dagen 22... en láng haar had ik ja, hetzelfde als jij, als kind àltijd kort maar toen ik het zelf kon bepalen, liet ik het groeien. Met zulke foto's ben ik nu heel erg gelukkig, blij dat ik ze heb om nog eens met bewondering naar haar te kijken. Ieder mens heeft mooie en minder mooie tijden doorgemaakt en ziekte is zwaar voor iedereen.
      Liefs,
      Mariette

  11. Lieve Mariette,

    Zo zijn we dagelijks met mooie en minder mooie herinneringen uit ons leventje bezig.
    Jou lieve moeder is bij leven in elk geval een sterke vrouw geweest die haar jaren lange nierziekte moedig doorstaan heeft,en of dat nou zes of 7 jaren geweest is doet er niet toe, de lange tijd dat ze in jullie midden was en ze een hoge leeftijd mocht bereiken is iets om dankbaar voor te zijn.En dat ben je ook aan je mooie en liefdevolle posten te lezen wanneer het over je moeder gaat.
    De uitstraling in het gezicht van je eerste man op jullie trouwfoto, hoe hij naar jou moeder kijkt tijdens het handen schudden spreekt boekdelen, denk dat deze man niet enkel jou liefhad maar ook zijn schoonmoeder.

    Liefs,Ger

    1. Lieve Ger,
      Dank je en ja ons leven hangt aaneen van vreugde en verdriet en alles wat menselijk is. De kunst is om telkens weer het mooie in die ander te vinden en ook in ons hart te bewaren. Oh ja, mijn eerst man Frans was heel gek met mijn Moeke. Mijn schoonvader zaliger was ook een klasgenoot van haar en met z'n beiden streden ze altijd om de titel wie het bèste van de klas was. Dus zodoende is het eigenlijk al twee generaties van vertrouwen en respect. Erg mooie herinneringen.
      Zulke foto's vertellen al een pracht verhaal zónder woorden als tekst toegevoegd... Ik heb altijd te doen met mensen die door band of watersnood àl hun kostbare foto's verliezen.
      Laten we hopen dat ik met mijn nierziekte ook nog zo'n hoge leeftijd mag bereiken; vol met mooie herinneringen.
      Liefs,
      Mariette

      Thank you and yes, I have been married 12 years before I married Pieter. This is a very special photo, the photographer who made them is also for decades in heaven, the husband of a dear friend... Often looking at photos we realize how many people have already passed on. But those memories are a blessing for staying in our hearts forever.
      Happy weekend to you, we had two rainy and cool days and now it is sunny and 18°C but tomorrow 26°C again. Love the warmer weather most!

    ich wünsche dir eine schöne Zeit -

      Danke und ja es war eine wirklich unvorstellbar lange Zeit dass meine Mutter noch überlebt hat durch die Dialyse; eine sehr tapfere Frau! Und ich bin so froh dass ich noch solche Bilder habe von der Zeit wo sie noch nicht krank war; so strahlend und glücklich schaut sie aus. So möchte man sie auch erinneren; ohne Schmerzen und ohne Leiden.
      Ein schönes Wochenende wünsche ich dir und ich schicke Sonne mit rüber!

  17. Good Afternoon Mariette, Your mother was a beautiful lady, with a beautiful smile. Photographs are a wonderful thing as although we hold memories in our mind, a photograph will remind us of things we might have forgotten.
    Your hair is so beautiful. When I was young my hair was similar to yours, as it was waist length as well. I was very sad when I cut mine.
    Thank you for such a treat, your wedding photos are lovely.
    Have a lovely weekend Mariette.
    Best Wishes

    1. Dearest Daphne,
      Thank you so much, yes a photo certainly does underline our memories and when I found these I was so very happy! Those were the years of mini-dresses and waist length hair indeed. Fond memories and I have had only once in-between very short hair.
      Sending you hugs for a sunny weekend.
