It was three years ago today that my dear mom passed away. There is not a day goes by that I don't think of her. I miss her so much. I was blessed to have such a wonderful mom. She was always there when I needed her. She believed in me even when I didn't believe in myself. She stood behind me no matter what decisions I made. She was there to catch me if I fell. She had this way of making everything better. She was not only a great mom but a wonderful grandmother and great grandmother. They all loved their Grammie Grace. She had a special bond with each and everyone of them. Everybody who knew her loved her. No matter what was going on in her life she always had this big beautiful smile. She was strong and independent and she raised us girls to be the same way. When my Dad passed away. She missed him so much. They did everything together. You never saw one without the other. She lived alone and took care of herself right up until she went to the hospital that February. She was 83 when she passed away. I was truly blessed to have her as long as I did but it wasn't long enough. I wasn't ready to let her go but then again are you ever really ready? Sometimes it feels like it can't already be three years and at other times it feels like so long since I saw her last. Life has changed so much since she left us. The place we called home is no more. People who were once a big part of my life are no longer in it. I do have so many beautiful memories and nobody can take those from me. What I wouldn't give for just one more day with her. One more day to see that beautiful smile, to hear that laugh, to just hug her and hold her close, to tell her how much I love her. It doesn't get easier, you just move forward with your life but you are never the same. Life is never what it once was. It is changed forever. For those of you who still have your parent(s) treasure each and every moment you have with them. I love and miss my mom and dad more then words could ever express.

Sometimes I think I can pick up the phone and call her and my Sister or my Niece none of them are here. There is a Birthday in the Family today and I was thinking of them all too. Its been 15 long years and it only seems like yesterday.

I'm sorry for your pain, and especially on this day in particular. For me, it was my Dad, he passed away July 4, 2009 and it seems like forever since I've talked to him, saw his face, heard his voice or his hearty laughter, or got my look-he had a special grin for me when I walked into the room. You are 100% correct when you give advise to others who have their parents to cherish them, but to those of us who have lost, we have to keep tight to their memories.

I feel the way you feel for your Mom. It is quite a big difference without a loving Mom beside you. I also treasure the days I had with my mother, she passed five years ago, but I still miss her and wished I had spent longer time with her.
