6 Months


It has been 6 months since my mom passed away.  Somedays it feels like yesterday and other days it feels like she's been gone forever.  I miss her so much.  No one does it like she did it; no one says it like she said it; no one loves me like she loved me.  She was and will always be the best!!
I love you Mom

Your mom was definitely "One Of A Kind". I used to love to hear the stories Dawn would tell about how funny your mother was, and how she was just simply "fun" to be with. How she was so calming and soothing to be around because she just made everything better. I wish I had been able to get to know her even more than I did. Thank heavens so much of your mom lives on in each one of you. I feel like I continue getting to know who she was through all of you. Your mom knows how much you miss her. She loves you still. And she is proud of all you are doing and how you are trying to press forward, even in her absence. Keep living in the moment and enjoying life to its fullest. That is the best gift you can give your mother. Have a peaceful, prayerful day. AH

Your Mother is beautiful. And from everything you have told me about her you are a great legacy of who she is. I wish I could do something to help, but I am always here if you need a shoulder to cry on, or just someone to talk to. ((hugs))

I can't believe it has been 6 months. I know it doesn't get easier and it is always hard. You have been so strong to deal with her loss and face this new adventure! I also have no doubt she has been right there watching over you!

Think about you and your family lots and lots!

Hang in there!

I've been thinking about you all day. Hope you are okay. My heart is aching for you right now. I promise, time softens the pain. Call me if you need to talk. Love ya.

Of course at quilting yesterday we talked about her. And all I wanted to do on my way home was call her like I used to every single quilting day. I really liked her haircut at the end. So cute. You and your calm demeanor are very much like her. Keep smiling. She did.

What a journey we are on.

I miss her. :(

I hope you are doing ok...Wish I could have been there to make that day a little easier. I was working on my blurb book that other day and I was doing the page where I blogged about you and your mom. Your mom is an amazing person and you are a great reflection of her. Missing you...a lot...

Okay two things. You need to listen to the song by Taylor Swift "Best Days" I cry every time I hear it but for me it just puts all the words I want to say about my mom in a way that makes sense. I just love it. The second thing is to read the book my mom gave me and I am pretty sure she is giving to all of us kids. It is called the message. I thought of you several times while reading it because you and I have talked so much about the spirits that are around us and how involved they are in our lives. I bawled like a baby, but I know that my Grandma and Grandpa Hatch and recently Grandma Lee have helped me in my trial of getting pregnant. It is an amazing book. If you don't want to buy it or if mom hasn't sent it yet, I will gladly share it with you. It only took me about two hours to read it!! I love you, hang in there!!

That is such a sweet picture. I'm thinking of you. It must still be difficult getting used to this "new normal". You truly amaze me though in how you're handling all of it. Your mom raised an awesome daughter. Love you. :)
