On April 20th will mark the second year Mom has been gone. Just in case you are wondering how I am faring during this time . I have good days and some bad days. On a bad day is when something will trigger my thoughts and remind me that she is know longer with me. I will sit and think about what we would be doing if she was here. She left so close to Mothers Day and that is what make these anniversaries so hard.
We paid a visit recently to my hometown and the memories are still strong. You try to occupy your thoughts with other things but she come right back. It has not been as hard as I thought it would be, but not as easy as I thought it would be either. Yes, I miss her voice; our talks and when I just need a Mothers shoulder to cry on, she is not there. My 90 plus Aunt is missing her also. They lived together for years and now she is in the house alone wondering why God is keeping her here.
There is nothing like a Mothers love. For those who still have your mother, please enjoy every moment because tomorrow is not promised. Even when you have done all you can you will still miss her when she is gone.
Yes, I miss her but, life goes on. I will continue to miss her believing it will get easier with time.
