Today is the 2 year anniversary of when my mom passed away. I have thought about her and missed her every day she hasn't been here. It's been a lot harder being pregnant and not having her here. I have a ton of support from my family and from friends,which I am so grateful for, but there is nothing like having your mom. I wish she were here to help guide me in the right direction and help me be the kind of mother she was. I wish she was here to tell me stories about my sister and me when we were little and how we did things at different ages. I don't want to go on and on down this path, so I'll just stop there. It's not easy losing your mom and it's especially not easy when you are so young and have so much more life ahead of you to live without her. I'm blessed to have the love and support of my family and thank God for them every day. Cody said something to me a few months after my mom passed away that really stuck with me. I was really upset and missing my mom a lot one day and Cody just said, "You know you'll get to see her again one day. You just won't get to talk to her for a long time and that sucks." It's so true and that gives me a great deal of comfort. I will see her again in heaven. It's just this fleeting time here on Earth that I have to miss her.
Here are just a few of the many of my favorite pictures of her. I hope you like them.
