Missing Mom

Today is the worst day of the year for me. It's the day I lost my mom. It happened 5 years ago today. Sometimes it still doesn't seem real. It still hasn't quite sunk in that I'll never have another conversation with her on this earth. This picture is of us on my wedding day (obviously). I thought my mom was positively breath taking, and so beautiful. We both had our hair and makeup done professionally and she was not at all happy with her look. I still think she looked amazing, but she hated it and thought she looked like a wild woman. There's not a person on this planet that could be further from the truth. She was an amazing person, and I miss her so much. I'd give anything for her advice, her fettuccini, or to hear her say her little "Praise the Lord".

Oh this post made me cry. I can't imagine how it feels. I think she looks beautiful (i've never seen her before) and I think she's looking down on you thinking, "Oh Lord did you have to post THAT picture of me?" Love you girl.

I so understand that post--ask our sistr about the sappy e mail I sent her. It was really bad this year and then I have shingles--AGAN_ and the meds are making me cry and extra moody. So this was absolutely the one o the worst weeks of my life also. It really was a beautiful post and Mama is so proud of you. I just wish she could be here with your kids and mine and Grandkids. Gene and Brady miss her lots too and they cry when I talk about missing her. So she is really missed by all of us who had the gift of knowing her. Love you
