my momma

my mother is the world to me. she was always my rock. i talked to her every day on the phone or she came and stayed the weekends with me and the family. she was a huge part of my childrens life and my nieces too.
we lost her 1 year ago may 4th. now her birthday comes tomorrow on may 11th with mothers day on the 13th. last year may was the worst month of my life. now as the 1 yr anniversary comes i cant help but weep.
i miss her so much. i miss our everyday phone calls just to hear her tell me what happened in her day and what was on the news. she would even let me know about the traffic. they say it get does but you never stop wanting your mom. she was my best friend. she knew things no one else did.
she will always be my #1 hero for all that she went through in her life. from being a battered wife and struggling to survive to becoming an independant woman that wanted nothing from anyone but love. SHE IS THE REASON I THRIVE! SHE IS THE REASON I LIVE!

what an inspirational story. Here I am feeling so sorry for myself and missing my mom just as much as you. we also had the same kind of relationship and I am still in the hardest part of trying to get over her death and the feelings of loss of all the memories that I wont be able to share with her. Amazing that we are actually who we are because of our moms. You are an inspiration. And just helped me to realize that I am also who I am because of her strenghth and determination to do what was best not for herself but for us. I also live because of her. And my mom would tell me now if she was still here to dig my whole and poop and throw up on myself till I had enough and was sick of it , and then when I am ready , climb out of the sh#& whole go and shower and get a life! Thank you for reminding me of the amazing spirit and zest for life my mom had.
