Today is the ninth anniversary of the loss of my mother. It is always a difficult day and I never  expect it to get any easier. No photos today as I am at my break for lunch. Just my sweet mom's face in my header as a beautiful young woman and a small girl. She is the smaller girl in the first communion photo.

It is a bittersweet day for me because my mother passed away on the anniversary of her own mother's birth. My maternal grandmother was the very best friend any girl could ever have. I would not trade her for anyone yet she was taken from me and it was also a devastating loss.

So I want to say today that I miss my other abnd grandmother both! They were such wonderful strong women. They survived so much and raised wonderful families in the process,

I just want to say if you still have a mom or grandmother please give them a big hug for me. You never know what you have until it is taken from you.

On a hapier note the day was perfect because we close on our house tomorrow. God is good. He is very good.

"Walk worthy of the Lord."  Colossians 1:10

Oh Anne, I know today must be hard for you. I will be praying for you. I am also going to give my Mom a big hug. My Mimmie was a few hours away from passing away on my birthday. I can't wait to see pictures of your new house!

Anne, First of all - big hug, as I know and understand how you feel, as I lost my very best friend who was my mum in 2000.

With the years flashing by so rapidly now, very often, I say to myself, "I still cannot believe that Mum has been gone x years" and then I calculate the number of days and then I am amazed that I have not seen her for that length of time!

It is so hard as sometimes I want to share the fact I have two grandchildren now, but then I encourage myself saying, "I know you can see them Mum" and I smile to myself, knowing that our loss is heaven's gain. She was a christian and I know that she is peeping over the balcony of heaven and smiling.

God bless you and your sweet memories of your dear mother.
