She left too soon and so loved

My mother was beautiful. I have a picture of her in her wedding suit up at work. People come to stare at it, she was that beautiful...and she didn't know it. Her whole life was dedicated to taking care of those around her: her parents, her friends, her children, my father's parents, her kids's friends.
She always wanted to become a foster parent. Its a shame she never did.
She was my person. The person I would confide in, cuddle, call every day...god, I miss her.
I do believe she is somewhere better, but she passed away 2 weeks ago when I was pregnant with my first child. I feel the loss for both myself, my child, and my mom because she so wanted to hold my baby. She wanted to help me decorate the nursery, take the baby to the beach, hold her, feed her, love her. Now, that will never happen and my children will never know that love she radiated.
I feel the pain from my stomach, to my heart and it seems to start welling in my throat and explode in my mind.
I will never hold her again, she will never again braid my hair or sing good morning sunshine to me, I will never again look into her blue eyes or get her letters in the mail packed full of recipes cut out of her O and Sunset magazines. Her love was so steady, so strong.
I will never again be the same person. This is the worst thing that has ever happened to me. I have faith that I will see her again, but I will live my life without waste, with laughter, with love, modeled after her and how she wanted life to be for us.
I love you mom.

Well, we have to keep on moving, for me, for my death mother, and for the family. It takes us so much power to live a normal life, but inside I am all broken. All is in broken pieces since the Death took my Mom away from me. I would like to come to you Mom. But my time is not come yet. I go further my way til one day I come in your world with a smile on my face. My dear Mom, I love you with all my heart.

Losing a mother is such a devastating experience. I remember this 11yrs. ago. That long journey to the hospital, and my sister not wanting to tell us that our mom had passed away and I was full of anxiety hoping we would get to the hospital in time before she died. I was the only daughter out of 5 girls that did not get to talk to our mother. So I was more devastated. Seeing your loved one in the coffin and just not believing it happened.
Now I lost my husband of 44yrs. to a deadly cancer 2yrs. ago. I nursed him for 3yrs.39 days and I will never get over his death. I am just learning to live with my loss ONE DAY AT A TIME. He will not see his 2 baby grandchildren grow up, and forge that grandpa relationship with them. He will never get to enjoy retirement or any of life he deserved from a 47yrs. working life often 6 days a week and sometimes 7 days a week. We don't get an easy path in life. Having a Faith somehow helps us cope with life better, knowing we will see our loved one's again. Otherwise I would give up and not bother with life. HOPE is all we have. May God go with you and comfort you with His Peace.
