Remembering...

Thursday, April 01, 2010

one of the saddest days of my life; April 1, 2007. The day my best friend and #1 cheerleader, my Mom Phyllis, passed from this life to the next. I believe with all that I am that she is in the presence of the Lord and that I will one day join her there. But the pain of missing her is still real, even in the presence of the joy of knowing of our future reunion. Oddly enough, my love for her still grows as I grow; I understand her more and appreciate her more now then I did on the day she died. And even though I smile more than cry at the thought of her these days, when I do cry it is over a deeper pain, because I realize more today than I did on that day in 2007 how much I depended on her, needed her, enjoyed her, treasured her.....and sadly never got to adequately tell her or show her.

I love you Mom. I miss you Mom. I look forward to seeing you again one day, Mom.

The resurrection that we celebrate this weekend assures me of this.....

Happy Easter!

    My mom died March 30, 2002. She was my best friend as well and I still miss her. If you ever get to a point where you want to just talk to someone other than those you usually talk to; please, please, please feel free to sparkmail me.

    Love, to you.

    I know EXACTLY how you feel.....my own Father passed away on April 1st TOO. 11 years and I still miss him immensely. I like you have gotten more understanding of him as I've grown older.
    He died at the age of 59, and 5 days before my birthday.

    Hang in there sweets, I'm right here with you!

    It's tough to lose the ones we love, even when we know that heaven is their new home. May you find comfort and joy in God!

    Wishing you a Blessed Easter!
