Tina in Chicago
I came to the site for my first post last year when my Mom passed. I did not think I would ever "get over it." I didn't, but I got through it. Today I am not as lost, I am not as broken, I am not as fearful, and I have filled that whole she left somewhat. I am not who I used to be.
But I am OK. I still miss my Mom, I still cry some days and I still feel occasional guilt. But I am OK. I still love my Mom so, so much. I still wish I could talk to her and I still Love her with all my heart.
I Love you so much MOM. But I know that God helps me every day and I know if he let's you, so do you.
It is coming upon your birthday this month and it will be the first one we are not together in my life. I will celebrate you that day, your love for me, your dedication to raising you kids, your strength, your faith in God, your gentleness, your roughness, your no nonsense approach to things, your consistency, your dependability, your being given to me as a gift.
I love you now and always Mom.
