    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.

    That is a beautiful way to remember your Mom!

    My Mom has been gone for a long time, 18 years, and I miss her every day. You are a very special daughter, and I'm sure your Mother's spirit lives on in you! A special butterfly, bird, dragonfly or other beautiful gift will come your way, and you'll know it's your Mom sending...

    I've written about her many times.

    Tomorrow is special though. She would be 59 years old. Not a day goes by that I do not think about her. It doesn't seem that long ago that everything happened yet it also seems like an eternity. I don't know why God had to take her. I don't know why he didn't just heal her like...

    She Was So Funny

    I don't remember how young I was, but I couldn't have been much older than six. It was summer, and I was home looking out of the window.  (No air conditioner) My mother decided that we could have some fun.  So she grabbed a few of my balloons and went into the bathroom where...

    I Miss My Mommie

    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...

    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...

    At the holidays and birthdays (which she always
