Losing my Mom
by Hillary Stevens
My mom left the world May 13, 2006. I just so happened Mother's Day was that Sunday. I was 12. My mother committed suicide. I have never felt so alone and helpless in my life. I miss her affection, her hugs and her voice. I miss the way she could always make me smile at the end of a bad day... She had a personality everyone adored, I am blessed enough to say I have the same.. Her smile could light up a room, I just wish she was here for my senior prom and graduation. That's the hard part. I try to be happy. But I just miss my mom.
