Missing mom


Today I went and planted some flowers for my mother by her grave. It was quiet and peaceful and I thought of all the wonderful memories that I have and how blessed I was to have her in my life. How lucky I was that she was my mom. I know that I am the person that I am because of her. I hope I'm still making her proud as I raise my own family. I know she watches as my girls grow and she will be their guardian angel and mine as we face challenges (big and small) of life. I feel her love everyday and keep her close to my heart.

I just wish I could have more time with her. I want to hear that last bit advice or that comment that used to annoy me so much when she would have an opinion on absolutely everything. I feel like her time was cut short and that it's unfair that she never really got to know her granddaughters. I try hard not to cry when I think of her and all I've lost. Instead I try to remember all the things I gained and learned by having her in my life. I will pass all those things on to my girls and that is how they will know her.

Happy Mother's Mom! I miss you and love you with all my heart!

God bless you, your wonderful mother in heaven, and your daughters on this Mother's Day.
I lost my sweet mother at the age of seven and have missed her most since the birth of my daughter. Yes, they are our guardian angels watching over us. Mother's day has always been very difficult for me. I don't know if I've ever gone through one without some tears shed for the loss of my mother.
Hugs to you.

Oh, this must have been hard to write.

I am sorry for your loss, but you're right. Your mom is looking down on you and your beautiful girls now. She must be so proud of you.

Happy Mother's Day!

This made me cry. I'm so sorry you lost your mom and I feel certain that she is watching over all of you. I loved that you wished you could hear even the advice that used to annoy you because this should be a wake up call to all of us. I hope you had a lovely day with your family!
