A year ago, Mom died. I miss her more than words can say.
It seems like forever ago. It seems like yesterday.
Being with Mom when she died was one of the greatest gifts ever given to me while on this earth. Between us there was nothing left unspoken. No anger. No regrets. Just a big hole in my heart. Nothing left to the imagination. She brought me forth into the world, and held her hand as she left it.
As she said about a month before she died, when we knew the end was coming, "We sure did have a lot of fun, didn't we." And how we did, indeed.
But this is the one year mark, and it marks the end of mourning. Her headstone is in place, the estate is closed. The year has come to a close.
I could not have gotten through this past year without all of you. Whether I read you blogs and laughed, or you commented on mine, thank you for being there when I needed it.
Life has to go on, and now so do I.
