I can't believe Sunday will be one year since I lost my mommy! It went by so quickly and so much as changed. The entire process was a whirlwind - 6 months from diagnosis to passing - and now the fast going year. I still can't believe she's really gone sometimes still, and sometimes i feel it and miss her so much.....I wish she would have gotten a chance to meet this new baby i'm carrying - it's so hard to have my mom gone esp when I'm preggo. In her memory I will be lighting the traditional Jewish memorial candle that burns for 24 hours on Sunday. My wonderful step-dad (Papa Shimon as we call him) Will be buying everyone desert for the day at what was their favorite resturant, in her memory. Man i miss her! I wish i could call her and tell her how much this sucks and how much i love her.

Oh sweetie

It hurt so bad for awhile but then one day you'll be doing something - showering, washing dishes something...you'll be thinking of her and you'll realize it doesn't hurt so bad anymore and you'll just smile at the memories.

I know how you feel about wanting her to meet your little bean, MIL died the day after we found out we were pregnant and she wanted grandchildren so badly ... but she and my daddy met Lynda long before I even knew of her!

That brings me comfort.

Woman you have me crying now!

Thanks ladies! I def feel like i'm at a better place - i've gotten to were i can think about good memories and not just watching her get sicker and sicker and then pass - which was all i could think about for at least the first 7 or 8 months. But the loss feeling is still just as big.
