23rd June

Every year on this day I do something that I think my mom would like to do with me, in case she is near me in spirit.  I like to think that she would rather me be busy and doing something fun or interesting than just sitting and thinking.  Sometimes I have a quiet, thinking day, but this year I am going to hang out with some friends, eat cake and sew. 

Thirteen years go by very quickly.  Days like today I wish I could be at home giving hugs to my sister, Nana and dad.  I love you guys.  Thinking of you all...


Miss you mom...

Beautiful post Amy. And I think you are right - in years to come, nothing would make me happier than knowing that my daughters are with friends and happy. Big hugs xxx

Perfect - I lost my mum 13 years ago too and I spend the day in a similar way.

while it was my Mom-in-law I lost, she was like my Mom, and that day it's hard to know what to do. You picked a perfect way to spend it. Sometimes nothing stops the thinking - but I try to make it positive thinking 'she would have laughed at this' 'you know she would have told you you're a smart ass' sometimes it makes me smile. I hope you smile today at a good memory.

That was very well said and really touched me. I lost my dad 14 years ago, and it is still very tough. Gratefully, I still have my mom. Hugs to you :)
