13 Years

I can't believe it's been 13 years.

I know I say that every year. But I really can't believe it's been that long.

I don't have much more today except this:

I miss you Mom.

I can't believe you've been gone so long.

I can't believe you will never see your grandchild.

I can't believe I still miss you so much even after all this time.

I'm not dwelling on sadness today. Two of my favorite families are visiting and we are spending the day at Disneyland. I think that's a pretty good way to spend what otherwise might be a sad day. I just feel the need to mark this day somehow, as it was one of the worst days of my entire life 13 years ago and I miss my Mom especially on this day.

Cheesy as it is, I always thought that Barry Manilow had it right for his song written to his grandparents who had passed away.

"This one's for you wherever you are
To say that nothin's been the same since we've been apart
This one's for all the love we once everything else I have, this one's for you."

Peace and comfort and hugs for you my friend.

I know you miss your mom.... I miss mine too... I don't think it ever really gets easier. I am sure there are times it gets worse. This year has been so hard for you and I know that if your mom was around it would be so nice to have her advice and comfort. My heart goes out to you today as you remember your mom.

Sending you huge hugs. My dad's been gone for 23 years and it's always a difficult 'anniversary'.
