    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...

    The holidays are just hard.

    I'm usually a pretty upbeat person but I just feel lost or like I'm an orphan when it comes to thanksgiving and Christmas. Both holidays were always spent at my mom's. Now that she is dead I feel a void that it irreplaceable and no matter what I do I don't feel satisfied because...

    I lost my mother July 20,

    2000. I miss her everyday. On the day that she passed, I left the house early to study and I regret it so much. I wish I had stayed. The pain of losing my mom is still raw and it is something that I'll never get over. I work hard to try to make her proud everyday. Trust me...

    I wait for you every single day; I know you

    are dead but that's ok... I KNOW you live in joy and light in heaven you abide day and night. You are no longer in the misery and anguish , the pain you bore is no longer there... When you closed your earthy eyes last time , the Angels came for you that time.... And then...

    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...

    Mom, I am sorry.

    Last year, before I left my dear country Morocco to come to the United States for the 1st time, at the airport my mom hugged me tightly and looked at me with a teary eye. She said, "Daughter, don't ever change. Stay the same good, innocent girl I have known for my whole life." I...

    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...

    After over 2 years if silence,

    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 lost my mother when I was seven years old.

    She was killed in a car accident. It is the hole in my heart I can never fill. A part of me has always been missing.

    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...

    It Doesn't Get Easier

    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...

    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'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...

    3 Years ago my mother was diagnosed with cancer.

    She still went to work after receiving chemo and radiation because she refused to quit. 3 Months ago she could still walk - a doctor told her that: "You do realize you're going to die soon." In a condescending manner. She never recovered. She died on the 4th Of February 2015 at...
