wondermom Posted August 13, 2009 Share Posted August 13, 2009 since my mom left this world. Sept. 8th marks the date. I have been thinking a lot about Mom lately. Missing her too. Thinking about how different things would be if she were still here. I would probably still be taking much for granted. I would be much more carefree. My children would have their Grandma and I would still be able to ask her advice in the mothering department. I don't think my daughter remembers her at all. She always talks about her though and refers to her Grandma up in heaven. I guess that is something right? My son does remember some but I wonder how much of what he remembers is just from me reminding him. We are having my mom's side over to my dad's again to get everyone together in the place my mom so cherished. Her family will be able to see that her garden still blooms, her pictures are still around, and her memory still lives strong there. My dad is still seeing the same woman and she will be there too this year. My mom's family has met her as well. It is kind of strange to think of her there at a celebration of my mom's life. She is a special person though. She even goes with my dad to change out flowers at the cemetary. She lets us talk about mom and tells us she enjoys the stories. We are greatful for her kindness. I know Dad still struggles and I am sure part of him always will. I say this all the time but it is still so unbelievable to me that my mom is gone. I still think of her every day and hope that I am living my life they way she taught me. I hope she is proud of us and smiling on us all in our day to day lives.
