Its been nine long days since my Mom passed away. How could she be gone? How could it be 9 days already? The sadness get worse every single day. I always knew someday she would be gone but there is nothing to compare to the reality of knowing I'll never hear her voice again or ever see her the rest of my life. I can't believe I will never get another phone call from her or be able to call her and ask for that favorite recipe. I already miss our shopping trips, the daily phone calls, the time together talking, every night calling me to tell me she loved me and would see me tomorrow. There were so many things we planned to do...how could she really be gone...forever? We weren't finished yet! I think of her constantly and I wish I could tell her how much I loved her one more time. She would tell me to go on with my life and be happy but I can't imagine my life without her in it. I never knew I had so many tears.... I miss you so very much Mom!
