    4 years ago today, I lost my mom to cancer.

    There is not a day that goes by that I don't miss her. She was an amazing mom, friend, confidant. Just an over all amazing woman. It was an honor to have known her.

    Dear mom, Like every normal girl,

    I was excited about marriage right from my childhood days. I never thought beyond the time that I would spend happily with my prince charming. But today when I am married, I realize that marriage is not all roses. It’s not just about being with your beloved and having a gala...

    It was nearly seven years ago.

    I still remember the look on my father's face when he heard the news. I remember when the sheriff went into his car and pulled out the two teddy bears to try and calm down my two siblings. I still remember the misery that I felt. The scar that will never fade. The pain that won...

    It's been almost 5 years

    since she passed. Sometimes I forget. Had the urge to call her on the phone and then I remembered I can't call her anymore. I want to be with her. I would rather be with her than here.

    I don't really know why I'm feeling extra sad

    tonight about my mom. I found out last week that my dad is getting re-married, so that probably has something to do with it but I'm really feeling down tonight and wishing she was here.

    like a human being. I cry every time I think of all the times you hit me when you didn't like what I had to say which was quite a lot. You didn't even care if I was happy or not. You only ever cared if your boyfriend and my sister were happy. All you care about is yourself...

    since she passed and I've been doing better. I don't know if it's because I've been keeping busy or because I've put a really thick wall up. My mothers memory is on my mind daily but the fact that she's dead, that both my parents are dead is not. I've accepted it and hopefully I...

    At the holidays and birthdays (which she always
