90 years

My mother was born 90 years ago today.
She died over 36 years ago, so she's been gone quite a few more years than I had her.
 Losing my mother taught me never to assume a person should "be over" their grief.
Never, ever assume.
And the loss also taught me the preciousness of having a mother,
a loving mother who poured into us four kids so much
that she loved and shaped us almost completely before we lost her.
Thanks, Mom. I miss you.
Happy birthday.

I miss my own mom every single day. I don't know if it will ever get better...but I don't ever want to get "over it".

So true, Barb. My mother would have been 98 years old today. I still miss her.
