Missing You...

Donna-Marie Aug. 25, 1946 ~ Jan. 12, 1999

Another year.
That makes 12 actually.
Another year without your smile, your laughter, your hugs.
Another year without your ear to listen to my joys and my sorrows,
no encouraging word from your lips when I need it the most.
I want to brag on my kids' accomplishments to you....because I know you would beam with a Nanny's Pride.
I want to tell you of my heart aches....because no one can comfort like a Mother's embrace.
Life has continued...tomorrow has turned into today and today into yesterday hundreds of times since I last saw your face.
Most days, weeks and months are filled with Joy now....
Most of the time I can think of you with a smile, a chuckle or a warm story.

Today is just one of those days....the other kind.
The kind that thankfully come so much more infrequently now.
The kind that hit me with such force, I am once again brought to my knees in pain.
The kind that remind me of all I have lost...
...and I MISS You.

Forever Your "Hush A Bye Girl".
I Love You Mom.
