    At these moments, I wish my mom was still alive.

    Not that she knew all the answers to my questions and problems, but she was always there for me to listen to me. No matter what I did, said or how foolish I was. She never judged me and always found a way to make me feel good. She really loved me and I really love her. I should...

    Three nights before she passed away today,

    my mom hugged me very tightly and told me that she would always love me forever, no matter what. I hadn't felt so comforted by such words since I was young, this moment gave me such great peace, especially considering how the past few years have been for me. I... I truly am...

    I Miss My Mommie

    When I was four years old, my mother had loss her year long battle against lung cancer. She had worked in a factory where asbestos was exposed, she of course did not know that. She struggled a lot, and I can only imagine the pain of the cancer and treatment. The pain of knowing...

    I love my mother more

    than I can express, but recently she has been different. As I am thinking about it I realise that it was always in the background and that the only thing that has changed is that she is no longer being subtle. I guess I should probably start at the beginning then, for the last...

    I wish I could have bought you flowers

    and painted you a picture like I used to every Mother's Day. Nothing compares to the love that swelled in my heart to see you tear up with happiness. I always tried my hardest to show you just how much I appreciated all that you've done for me, but I wish I had done more. I wish...

    been thinking a lot about her today.

    she was the kind of person who took care of things and put others before herself. she reminded everyone of birthdays and made sure everyone felt appreciated and loved. she worked hard all her life, and was better than i deserved.

    I'm thinking of taking a trip to California to

    get away from everything. I just have to get the courage to fly across the states (I'm from ny) I really dislike flying but I need a get away and have always wanted to go to Cali. I'm not sure taking a trip and being away from home will help or hurt my grieving process????

    At the holidays and birthdays (which she always

    remembered..even spouses) you could always depend on her to bring the chocolates and the home made pastries. You could also depend on the well thought of gifts lovingly wrapped with her own special touches. Which we all ever so slightly took for granted. I miss you Mom. Whenever...

    But now she sides with my dad.

    She gets mad slightly more often. I miss who you used to be, mom. You aren't all that different, but the things you say... They sound like they came out of Dad's mouth, sometimes.

    My mother's one year anniversery is coming up

    soon. I miss so many things about her and the fact that a year has past since I've seen her is so hard to accept. It's a struggle to stay in a place of gratitude for having had her in my life, but I know its the only way to keep moving forward.
