The color still faded and dull even 4 years later. The sky not so blue, the grass a faded pale green and the yellow of your roses you cherished, pale and washed out. You were my light, my vibrance, my reason. The world is so lonely without you.

I love you and miss you Mom! You are forever in my heart.

Mother's Day without you again and Forever.

They say it gets easier with time. They say the pain will subside. They say move on, "the living have to go on living" They lie.

I spent another Mother's Day with no one to send flowers to, or call, or be mad at, or be with. Only the memories that would bubble to the surface with a few tears were my company again this day for our Mother. I tried to keep my mind on other things, did "busy work" around the house. But every time I walked by your picture with the candle burning next to it, it would stop me dead in my tracks.

Death scares me now more than ever. My faith waning terribly at times. All the questions that can't be answered, swirling through my head causing bouts of thinking that could drive many insane. If only it were that easy.

Not a day goes by that I don't think about you, wonder where you are, if you are, what your doing, if your watching. Mothers Day more than any.

I miss you terribly. I love you always Mom.

Becoming accustomed to the Pain.

Posted on May 5, 2014 at 7:25am 0 Comments

30 months ago you left us without a word. Vivid in my mind the hour is still, as if it were just a moment ago. The pain of your sudden departure has not subsided or dulled as so many had promised. It is still as sharp and soul piercing as it was then. I have, I suppose become accustomed to the empty pain, not by choice but by unwelcomed force. The color has not returned to the blue sky gone since that day that your soul left us, alone and shattered, and the dull haze remains over what I used to call life.

I miss you more than words could ever describe Mom. I long for the day we meet again and cherish the memories of your life as more precious than anything I've ever known. 

I love you!

Hey Mark:

Just stopping by for a visit:  loved your latest post with the music and pictures, thank you for sharing your family with us.  The holidays were particularly hard for me after the horrible losses of my Father and my Grandmother, but God himself blessed me with the strength to carry on so it will be a new year again with newfound hope.  May God continue to bless you!!!

Hi Mark,


What a wonderful, touching and beautiful memorial you have setup here for your mother.  I was in tears watching the video.  My own mother turns 67 on Monday.  I lost both my father and my dear grandmother this year and I couldn't be happier I still have my mother left who always has and always will be my best friend.  I can tell you loved her deeply.

Take care of yourself and be well!

Thanks, Mark! Great page you have set up for your mom.  Not sure how often I'll be on but keep me posted.  I have lots going on right now but I think about your mom often.  So sorry we weren't able to see each other in person but the connection we had on Facebook was great and we did get the chance to talk with her on the phone a few times. 

Take good care of yourself - the first year is always the hardest but your mom would want you to move on with your life and live it to the fullest, course, you know that!

Hugs,

Lib
