I really miss my Mom!
Although I lost my mother Diana in April 1998, I still remember like it was yesterday. It was the day that my life changed forever. You see, I loved my mother more than life itself. She was very well liked and loved by all. She displayed kindness in every way. She wasn't a saint, but she was close to it. My mother died from breast cancer and she knew of her condition for 2 years prior, but chose to keep it to herself. I have wrestled with this fact she couldn't tell me. I now understand that she wanted to spare us the pain. My mother could have told me anything. I would never judge her because she taught me not to. I still don't know what I would do if I had it. She chemo/radiation done and I felt so helpless as to what to do to comfort her. Her appetite diminished and she had no strength. She was gone in 3 months. To those who have recently lost your moms: Don't let anyone tell you how long and when to grieve. Some may say "Get over it, already". I would give my life in order to see her again. As I cry as I write this, I remember the great times and will continue to cherish her legacy.
