    I miss you mom. Letter i wrote to my mom.

    Times like these hurt so much for me. Every birthday, holiday or any day all I can think about are the things we did together. I thank God for every second I got to see you, no one's perfect and we weren't an exception, we didn't have much, we fought too much but at the end of...

    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...

    "Sometimes when one person is missing,

    the whole world seems depopulated." Dear Mom, I can never stop loving you.

    A thousand words could not bring you back.

    I think my Mom got tired of raising kids.

    Im the youngest (22 now) and somewhere in those vital teen years, it felt as if she gave up a little. I never got pushed in school or had the guidance my other siblings got; I was the last in line, the unfortunate one that often got over-looked. It made me feel lesser to not...

    I didn't get to know you very long

    but you were the best person in the world. It hurts to know that I won't be able to take comfort in your arms again like I did when I was a kid. Growing up without you was hard, being with a strange family who did nothing but hate me. They still hate me and it burns even more...

    Three years ago today my mother committed

    suicide by hanging herself in her basement. I never knew why, the only two theories are: She was so broken hearted about losing the love of her life to cancer a few years before and it was too much pain, or she was diagnosed with cancer herself and didn't want to suffer the same...

    I just went to my mothers grave to bring her

    flowers for her birthday. Her headstone was under 4 ft of snow, never mind the 6 ft drift at the edge of the road. I put the flowers in the spot that I think she is. I feel like a horrible daughter, because I am not sure.

    I haven't seen her since she left

    when I was 12. I know where she lives but I don't have the strength to go to her. She left us when all of us + my mother moved out of L.A. I know she would understand who I am now. Dad doesn't understand.

    But she's not dead. The worst kind of missing

    for me. She is crazy, she has mental issues. I had to leave her and many didn't understand. She didn't take me to school, pretended to homeschool me, screamed at me every other day. But she would swing between neutral, angry and overly sweet and make me food and talk high...
