Poignant, lovely and hilarious. Thank you for sharing.

This is the most beautiful of posts . Thank you Amy for sharing it with us . How blessed you your mom and dad are to have shared this journey together. The gift of a facial soothing rose moisturizer v can lean greasy sheets and Jammies and your hands your face your mantra all the things that truly matter!

I am so sorry my phone changes words all the time that should be your hands clean sheets and pajamas not that nonsense I am so sorry you have to even read that because I love the gentleness of what you shared

Thank you for that beautiful, love-filled story!

Thank you Amy. It is how I'd like to live my life. No regerts

I was so touched by your lovely story. What a blessing for you and your dear mother to share that sweet wonderful time together.

I love this so. Thank you for sharing this story full of love.♥️

Thanks for sharing these precious memories, Amy.

Thank you Amy, what a powerful message. I am sorry for your loss but greatly appreciate the relationship you had with your mother. May we all live each day with no regrets.

As well sung by the forever-relevant Edith Piaf in one of my favorite songs:

Non, rien de rien
No, nothing of nothing
Non, je ne regrette rien
No, I don't feel sorry
About nothing
Ni le bien qu'on m'a fait
Not the good things people have done to me
Ni le mal tout ça m'est bien égal
Not the bad things, it's all the same to me
Non, rien de rien
No, nothing of nothing
Non, Je ne regrette rien
No, I don't feel sorry
About nothing
C'est payé, balayé, oublié
It's paid for, removed, forgotten
Je me fous do passé
I'm happy of the past
Avec mes souvenirs
With my memories
J'ai allumé le feu
I lit up the fire
Mes chagrins, mes plaisirs
My troubles, my pleasures
Je n'ai plus besoin d'eux
I don't need them anymore
Balayées les amours
Broomed away my love stories
Et tous leurs trémolos
And all their tremble
Balayés pour toujours
Broomed away for always
Je repars à zéro
I start again from zero
Non, rien de rien
No, nothing of nothing
Non, je ne regrette rien
No, I don't feel sorry
About nothing
Ni le bien qu'on m'a fait
Not the good things people have done to me
Ni le mal tout ça m'est bien égal
Not the bad things, it's all the same to me
Non, rien de rien
No, nothing of nothing
Non, je ne regrette rien
No, I don't feel sorry
About nothing
Car ma vie, car mes joies
Because my life, my joys
Aujourd'hui, ça commence avec toi
Today, they begin with you

Bonne journée à tous et bonne année,
Ella (who doesn't regret living in Nice!)

What a nice thought to share precious stories from your readers. This special story from Amy is a timely reminder of the importance of each moment with family members and how humour can be such a great bonus. Thanks. Jennie in NZ

Stunning. Perfect. Perfect writing. Perfect mother. Perfect daughter. Perfect philosophy. Perfect. Thank you for sharing this glimpse into your perfect love. It was an honor to read.

Deeply touching and beautiful, most of my my words fail me, except to say a heartfelt thank you!

A beautiful story of love that brought forth a few tears.

What a beautiful story, Amy. How fortunate you and your mother were to be able to spend her last days together and share your memories and your love. You will never have any "regerts" and you will have her enduring love. Judy Wilcox

Such a beautiful story. Thank you.

Thank you, Amy for such a heartwarming share. Thank you, Corey for sharing it. Starting today I am having No Regerts. Jennie Q

Oh, the care Amy gave to her mom is so beautiful. I love this story. God Bless You, Amy. We all should live with "no regerts"! Thank you for sharing.

The love and laughter you shared with your mom, despite the sad times is inspiring. No regerts! (I also took care of my mom for her last few months and the funny moments were the best.)

Amy, I second every word/sentiment of Jackie’s.
Just perfect. Thank you for sharing your love of your mother with us. I’m sorry for your loss.

Amy,
I lost my Mom at a very young age, truly effecting my life. I thank God that you had this opportunity to share these precious moments to usher Mom's journey to her Heavenly Home.
Thank you so, so much and sympathies to you and Dad...Prayers and Love, Karen from Wisconsin,

Beautiful post, Amy. Thank you. Bless your dear heart.

This is just wonderful.

Corey, Once again a perfect post. Just what I needed today. Thank you for all your efforts to keep us focused on love and giving during these past difficult years.
