Happy Mother's Day all you moms out there.
I started this blog a few days after Mother's Day 2009. I had no real plan or direction of what I would do with this blog. I was compelled to write something Mother's Day related since it was still pretty much the season of Mother's Day (sales). So I put my thoughts to "paper" and made this post. I just read it again for the first time in quite a while.
It still crushes me that she isn't here. She didn't see me graduate from undergrad/grad school. She didn't get to congratulate me on my first job . . . first car (that I bought) . . . first home. She never got to cry on my wedding day . . . meet my wonderful husband . . . or her future grandchildren. I cry because I miss her. I cry because I'm angry she couldn't be here. I cry because there was nothing I could do to make it so she could be here today. Leaves me feeling so powerless. What I always treasure are my last words to her . . . I love you. It's hard to remember to make your parting words, positive words. I'm so happy I can treasure my last words to her. No regrets. I miss you mom. I love you.
