Dear Mom

I feel in my heart you know all I'm about to say.  I miss you.  Fourteen years feels much longer.  April (and May) have been hard months for me, since you and Dad are no longer here.  I'm praying the birth of your recent great grandson and the engagement of your second grandson, will make April a little less sad.  Your granddaughter just celebrated her 29th birthday.  The burden of being the rare bright spot in April, has been somewhat lifted.  Seems just yesterday you were here to rejoice in her birth.  She is such a blessing, but you know that.

It's selfish of me to wish you were here.  You are still my hero, but, I will have to take comfort, knowing you know how I feel, from where you are.  Always seeing, always knowing, always loving us from afar. 








I love you, Mom!

Your mom was beautiful.
Thank you for sharing a little of her with us.

And I love that the family has gone on, grown, and still they think of her with love.

She must have been a beautiful person. She can never be gone as long as you hold her in your heart. What a blessing all the good memories are!

I'm only three years in from losing my dad, but I know without a doubt that I'll feel the same way after 14 years as you do.

The emptiness and sense of loss never go away. We just learn to adjust to living with it....

Michelle Pixie said...

My heart aches for your loss but rejoices in your blessings. I hope you find some peace but I know that is hard to do when a parent has died. Love you!

Ms. A said...

Margaret, thank you. She was indeed a treasure.

Oh my sweet friend. I understand. I had a good cry this morning missing my parents. It's hard being an orphan even at our age, right?
