I Miss My Mother

    My mom passed away last year (January 2013).

    She was eighty-eight years old, which was very fitting for her to have lived in years, the same amount as there are keys on a piano; because her life was built around her love for playing the piano. We had no clue that mom was sick. She had no signs or symptoms of there being...

    I miss my mother very much.

    I think of her every day, thinking back on all the good memories she left behind. I have not visited her as often as I'd wanted, since I do not live there anymore. My mother died a few years ago. She died in 2004 and I was only 7 years old. I was so small, and I remember the...

    It Doesn't Get Easier

    I know people say only time heals the pain of losing someone, but it doesn't. I think about my mom all the time. Sometimes I spend a whole class at school remembering things about her, and thinking about her makes me feel depressed. I guess I handled it having my brother to...

    I think I was like four or five years old, on vacation with my parents, and I saw my mother putting on some mascara before we went out to eat. I saw it and asked what it was, and if I could have some too. I was still so young though, so my mother said that it was a one-time...

    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...

    Christmas was her favorite time of year.

    We didn't have much, but she made it so good. Sometimes I would hear her crying and saying to herself that she wanted better things for us. We were happy though. We had her and each other. I remember the white tree in the den. We would turn off the lights and sip sparkling grape...

    At the holidays and birthdays (which she always
