Your mother is beautiful. You were so young to lose her. 

However, think of you and your child. That's how much your mom loves you and she wants you to love life ...She knows you will never forget her...but she wants you to enjoy life and her grandchild.

Take care.


well i've three babies to live for now. i know she's proud of me ty but i just still cry alot ive been diagnosed with ptsd. my childhood was terrible but i'll cry alot


Remember our babies are watching us and they are seeing how we deal with life ....the good stuff and the bad...so we must try our best to show them the joy in life...while never forgetting our mamas.

Be good to yourself.


Dear Shannon,

I am very sorry for the loss of your mother.  Mothers are very special and irreplaceable and it's especially harder when you lose them at such a young age when you need them the most.  I know it may not seem fair to see other mothers with their daughters, but take heart for life will not be unfair forever.

There does exist someone who does give us the strength we need when we have to deal with such painful situations. "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation." - 2Corinthians 1:3,4.  Even when we feel we can't go on, he helps us.  "He is giving to the tired one power; and to the one without dynamic energy he makes full might abound." - Isaiah 40:29.

Through his comforting words he wants us to have hope for the future where he promises we will no longer suffer and will bring back to life the ones we have lost in death. "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death wil be no more, neither will mourning, nor outcry, nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." - Revelation 21:4.                     "For just as the Father raises the dead up and makes them alive, so the Son also makes those alive whom he wants to." - John 5:21.

You and your daughters can be reunited with your mother again and be able to share wonderful memories under perfect conditions.  May you hold on to these promises and take comfort in them.

My condolences,
