Wow it's been almost a year since Mom has passed away....yet I keep expecting her to call or wanting to tell her a million different things. Like our Christmas time and how Blake sang in the choir. There were so many other times that I know she was there and proud of us.
We went to a friends 1st Communion on the day of Blake's 9th birthday party. His party was at a bowling alley......and the boys had fun!
Who would have thought 1 year ago when we were planning Blake's Communion, that Mom would have passed away 2 months later? She was so proud of him and very peaceful. Life has changed so much....I miss my Mom and I wish she was here......but she's not. Blake misses his Grandma a great deal too. Whenever he gets quiet in church......or if he does something really wrong.........he starts crying for Grandma. He and my mom were very close and all three of us spent the last 4 years of her life living together. For that I will always be eternally grateful. There still wasn't enough time but if she lived to 99 there would have been 1 more question. Such is life and someday all of our answers will be answered. Until then, love who you are with and know that life is too short for regrets.
