Nick C Posted April 5, 2007 Share Posted April 5, 2007 At 7:20 this morning I still wasn't out of bed...I thought about staying there all day because I wasn't ready to get up and start what would be the second half of the first year without my mother. There has already been and will be a lot of tears today. How has it been 6 months since my phone rang and it was her on the other end? How has it been that long since I said I love you and got an I love you back from her? How have I managed without her there as my Rock through a rough 6 months? How am I ever going to enjoy children? Who am I going to turn to when kids aren't the easiest thing to do? Is she OK? Have the signs of her really been her? Will I see her again? My faith says yes to those 3. But that's tough sometimes. She was so funny. So much fun. We were so alike and as I got older we were getting moreso. Mom, this world isn't nearly as fun without you...not as easy without you. I miss our banter...I miss your stories of your work day. I miss your voice and smile. I miss the love of a Mom. And I am just SO sorry for all those who have had loved ones lost to or diagnosed with this disease. I feel everything you write and am often moved to tears. But your sharing has helped me. It's part of how I've made it through. A big part. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
