My beautiful mom passed away September 30, 2010, four days after my birthday. Last year was very hard and I did lots of crying. It was the first year I didn't receive a birthday wish from her. She was still with us but she was already gone. Now almost a year and it will be my first birthday without her. I'm dreading it. I love and miss you so much, momics!!

Mom birthday Sunday and she not here to celebrate.
by: Anonymous

How do you celebrate your Moms first birthday gone from this earth? My mom died almost 6 months ago and her Birthday is this Sunday, 2 days. And how do you get through the day not being able to get her a card or a gift or to just tell her happy birthday mom I love you ? Getting through my birthday 2 months after she passed was hard as she always made my day special. I had to take it one day at a time while others just rush through the process and tell you it will get better. How is all I want to know? The women who brought me in this world is gone at a young age of 65. She would have been 66 this weekend. It's so hard and I hate thinking back to the last day when I watched her leave this world, I miss here more then anyone will ever know, she lived right beside me and I close my eyes and see her walking in my door. This is soon hard. I know The Lord is the Bly one who can and will help me through this.

I am 26 years old. My mother passed away actually a day before yours last year. So this week will be a year and I am still in shock about it. I have some "ok" days but for the most part I still feel that void that I am assuming will never really leave. I miss her everyday and still see or hear things that I want to tell her about and have to remind myself that I can't. I'm sorry for your loss and I too was sad when my birthday came and she wasn't there. I don't think anyone can ever really know the pain and guilt that comes along with the loss of your mother or even the void that you feel from the loss. However I talk to her and tell her I miss her and I even still have a voicemail from 2 days before she passed that is still on my phone that I listen to. I hope you're coping ok with the one year anniversary and I'm glad I found this site. Be well.

Happy Happy Birthday
by: TrishJ

It should just be another day right? Wrong. I just celebrated my first birthday without my husband yesterday and spent most of the day in my new apartment crying and feeling sorry for myself. My husband was not the most romantic guy in the world but birthdays, anniversaries, valentine's day and Christmas were all very special to us. It's so lonely not the get a "happy whatever" from him. I know he and your mom are looking down on us but that doesn't ease the loneliness while going through all of the firsts does it? My favorite thing about yesterday was my son, daughter and three little grandsons calling me to say, "Happy Birthday." Oh what I would give to hear that from my husband just one more time.
God's blessings to you. Hold on to your beautiful memories and try to have a happy birthday. Your mom would want you to have the best birthday ever.
