    Is she gone? No. Is she dead?

    Also no. I miss my mother because she isn't my mother any more. She don't accept me as her daughter, and frankly its all my fault. When I was younger I was really hard on her. I used to say I hated her and that I wish she would die. I'm the one who deserves to die. I tell her I...

    I lost my mother last year.

    She'd had many pregnancies, and she was being a surrogate for her infertile friends. She was carrying twins, too. This added extra strain. She went into labour one day and she never made it home. She died doing what she loved. Simply, her body couldn't take this last pregnancy...

    I miss her so much. I don't remember what she

    looks like, its been so long. She didn't raise me because she wasn't really capable of raising my sister and I and supporting us and defending us from our abusive alcoholic dad (her husband) and going to night school. She was only 16 1/2 when I was born and my parents didn't...

    The two things I miss the most about my mother

    are her laughter and her smiles. She really loved to laugh. I see that in myself, and I think I hold on to her that way. She had a beautiful smile that I wish I could describe. All I can say is that her smile made me feel warm inside.
