2 years ago --
It has been 2 years since my mom passed away. I always think it would be nice to take the time to write down all the things that I miss about her, but the list is so long and the list is so emotional that I just can never find the time to want to sit down at a computer and cry for hours. I still feel like I am learning lessons about her every day. As I go to so many different events that showcase the passing of time (birthdays, graduations, baptisms, retirement parties) I just marvel at how much she is missing out on that she wanted to be here for. And how much all of us live our life expecting to be here for these things and then to have it all gone, just like that. She knew she was leaving. She knew she would miss it all and yet she handled the disappointment so gracefully. And since her passing her dad and her sister have joined her and it just all seems unreal in so many ways.
