I hope by writing here it will help me deal with the fact that my mom is not in the physical world anymore. My mom passed away in August 2007. She was my anchor, my confidant, and above all my friend. As an only child, the relationship we shared was very special. I have only cried once around Christmas at her grave. I have not been there since. I have many wonderful memories of my mom, although at times it's so difficult to believe she is really gone. I was a good son and a vigilant caregiver. I always wonder did I do enough. I know the answer, however I still feel guilty about something. I was fortunate enough to talk to her the night before she passed. She told me she loved me. I guess when all is said and done, I'm pretty fortunate to have that lasting memory forever. I pray for everyone who is dealing with the loss of a mother this year. I plan on trying to make it a "memorable day" in honor of my mom. I know she is safe and watching over me every moment of the day. God Bless! Thank you for having the opportunity to express myself.
