I Miss You, Mom
by Renee Duvall

I used to think that people didn't need their moms so much after they grew up.
But I've realized that's not true.
So often, when I'm making a decision,
I wish you were here so I could ask your advice.
And so many times, that I know you would enjoy,
I wish you were here to share it with me.
Now that I'm older I've realized how special our relationship is.
And while I'm thankful for this bond, somehow it makes me miss you more..
Mom, I love you so very much.
I lost my own mother in 1986 due to cancer.  And there isn't a day that doesn't go by that her lost isn't felt by me.

If you are fortunate to have your mother still with you, hug and cherish her. Spend the day with her, call her, tell her that you love her.  For there might come a day that she won't be around for you to do so.
If you are a mom, enjoy your day.

Happy Mother's Day Mommy!

Hi Findalis, this is a beautiful and touching post.
My Mother passed away when I was five, so this
is a sad day for me. I hope you won't have such a sad day either. I think once all the hype is over, we can go back to just the daily dull ache of loss that never leaves when your Mother has passed away!
Take care and God Bless.

Such a wonderful post. I was fortunate enough to spend most of the day with my Mother - she's 82 years old. I took her and Dad out for breakfast and my Mom cleaned her plate! :)

Happy Mother's Day to you Findalis and to all the wonderful Moms that hang out here.
