Today marks the sixth anniversary of my moms death. I've been dreading this day all week. Its kind of funny how when I woke up it didn't immediately hit me like I feared it would. I am doing OK surprisingly well all things considered. I do still miss her always will I guess.
The holidays have been hard for me since mom died. My mom is the one in our family who "did" Christmas. She loved that time of year everything done to the max! It was easy to get caught up in her happiness and enthusium with cooking, decorating, presents galore she started Christmas in July. Now not so much.
The thing I know for sure is you only get one mom and one dad and you miss them when they are gone...so if you still have yours call them and love them the best you can. My relationship with my mom was far from perfect but I loved her and she loved me.
Rest in peace mom.
