Missing Mom…

Today is 10 years since my Mom passed.  I remember it like it was yesterday.  But, I hate remembering my Mom in that way – though sometimes it’s the strongest memories I have because of how painful it was watching her pass. 

I want to remember all the wonderful things about my Mom – the hugs & prayers when I was sick – one of my favorite memories was when I was little & so very sick she’d rock me in her arms in the rocking chair.  Or better yet the Saturday nights we’d play “hairdresser”.  I would pull out my drawer of hair bows & ribbons, get out the brushes & comes & start styling her hair away.  She always loved what I did no matter what it was.

I think of how sick my Mom was my whole life, but how she didn’t let it stop her from giving us the memories of a wonderful childhood filled with vacations and just every day good times. 

I wish that she was around to enjoy, hug & love my Son like I know she would. 

I pray that I’ll be half the Mom she was to me.
