Anniversaries of the sad sort

Its been 365 days since my mom died.  My heart is aching and the tears are flowing.  I still pick up the phone to call her and the waves of sadness that wash over me when I realize, I can’t call her are still frequent.  Today is the last “first” we experience without my mom.  I had a hard time falling asleep last night.  I kept hoping today wouldn’t come, that this last first wouldn’t happen.  But here we are, July 25, 2010, and she’s really been gone a whole year.  She’s never going to meet her namesake, or see what amazing little people my children are becoming.

I miss her.  My heart breaks again today.  Mom, if you can hear this, I love you.  I miss you.

  • >I completely relate. I'm also a motherless daughter as my mother died 8 years ago tomorrow (July 27). I was 22. I've since gotten my Masters Degree, gotten married and had a baby. It's so hard not having her here physically but knowing I'm not alone and there are other people dealing with the same type of grief is comforting. I hope you find some relief in your grief.
  • >I am so so sorry. My father just passed away yesterday and I know your pain so so well. Praying for you.
  • >Kasey, I'm so sorry you know my pain. Did your mom get to meet your little one? Lots of hugs for you. Jess, I'm heartbroken for you. I'm so sorry about your father's passing. I'll be saying some extra prayers for all of us tonight. Thank you for the kind words.
  • >Lots of love for you, Brett. I know how hard this has been on you. You know I'm always up beyond late...if you ever need talk - I am here.
  • >I am so sorry for your loss. My mom passed away a year ago on July 8th so I know how hard it is. I miss her the most when it comes to my 15 month old daughter... I always wish she could see the new stuff she's doing and give me advice when I'm having a bad day. I'll be thinking of you today and I hope you spend the day with the ones you love!
