My Mom

Tomorrow will mark the one year anniversary of my mom's death. It's hard for me to believe that it's been a year. I had never spent more than two weeks away from her before so the idea that it's been a year now and I've survived is shocking to me. I miss her so very much. I thought that time would make it hurt less or that eventually I'd stop missing her but I've found that neither of those things are true.

I've also learned in the past year how much I'm like my mom. She was one of the toughest ladies I know. No matter what happened to her she would pick herself up and laugh it off. She just pushed forward and nothing stopped her. I don't handle things as well as she did but I've learned a lot from her about how to move forward and still be happy.

So here is a little slideshow I made of my mom. I've never done this before but I had a lot of fun putting it together so I hope it works!

I love you mom and I still miss you!

I can't believe it has been a year too. The slideshow was awesome and made me cry. Your mom would be so thrilled on what you, Heather, Shawn and Amanda have done this year. I know she is looking down and smiling and watching over you all.

It's been 15 years since my mother passed away and I still miss her terribly. What a wonderful tribute to your mother.
