I lost my mom August of last year. I dont know if its the approaching anniversary or what but i can not stop crying over her. The pain is so strong. I miss her being here everyday, but also for the moments. My daughter just graduated high school, my son, who struggles, just graduated 8th. I want to call her and share the news. She loved my kids oh so much. Damn i miss her.

I totally understand where you are coming from. I lost my mom 29 years ago...6 weeks before I gave birth to my 3rd child. She was my best friend....took me 10 years to deal with her loss....it does get easier, yet the pain & missing I think is always there! One day we will reunite! I'm here for you...hang in there . If you want to pm me that's fine!!! Love & Hugs!!!! XXX

You can!!! That's the best thing,,,she'll hear you! I know how much you'd love to hear her voice now , I'd love to hear my moms too, sadly that isn't going to happen. How lucky are we to get signs though! Try to remember all the positive memories of her......I'm so so sorry you're going through this. I'm here for you..you can pm me if you'd like. Love & Hugs!!

Posey3550, I am so truly sorry for the loss of your mom. I loss my mother 8 years ago and that first year was the hardest. I was so use to picking up the phone and calling her every day, several times a day to share family matters as well as letting her know when her favorite movie/show was on. It was so automatic to pick the phone up and then the tears would start knowing she wasn't there. The first Christmas, her birthday, my birthday were so difficult. She would always call me on the morning of my b-day and sing and play guitar. I felt empty knowing I wouldn't hear that again.

I needed an outlet for my feelings for her. I needed to be able to continue to converse with her and thanking her for all the memories she made during my childhood. I turned to Legacy.com I sponsored the Guestbook for her. Family & Friends only used it right after the funeral. Now I have it at hand each and every time I want to talk with her, update her on what's going on and just generally reliving all the happy memories of each holiday that goes by. For me it fills that void. I hope you too find a way to keep her memory alive as well as relieving some of the pain you feel each day.

Hoping that somehow sharing my thoughts may help. xx

I'm really sorry. I lost my mommy too, but I was only 15. I promise it gets easier as time goes on, but I still find myself crying occasionally because I miss her. it does get easier though! stay strong
