Today marks the 4th anniversary of my Mom receiving her Angel wings.
I could write on here for day's how I feel and how angry at the world I was when she died in my arms. Crap, I'm still angry! I know that Mom would not want me to do that. So instead, when I woke up this morning, I choose to celebrate the wonderful life she had lived and remember her with every loving thought I have in my body.
There are constant reminders of her in my everyday life that help with remembering all the great things I so loved about her.
~Muffin - Her constant and loving companion of 3 years. (Yes Mom, to this day, she still runs into the house and looks all over for you.)
~Cooking in HER pots and pans. Mom was a gourmet cook who passed that talent on to me when I was young. I can still picture her standing in the kitchen cooking wearing her apron.
~The way she decorated her house here in Florida. Timeless, elegant & classy.
~Her closest friends. They called us today to say "I remember."
~My Dad. How she loved him for 59 years. (And how he drives me crazy now...)
Those are just a few of the beautiful memories that I hold close in my heart.
Who ever said 'with time it will get easier' is just plain ol'e full of BS in my opinion. Life without you is NOT easier, time just makes it more bearable.
Thank you for being the best Mom a girl could possibly have. I'm blessed that you were MY Mom for 49 years.
