My Mom

Last night since Kyle was working, I went over to my dads to hang out and visit. I was sitting at his computer when I noticed my moms old daily calendar book. I slowly reached for it as I knew it would make me a hot mess. And I was right. Just seeing her handwriting started the tears. My mom died of cancer in '99. The year of the calendar was from that year, and it killed me to see that she had written stuff down for future months and she never saw those things happen. She died 6 days after my 15th birthday. I ended up asking my dad some questions about when he knew she wasn't going to make it. He said she lived 5 years longer than the doctors had given her. She was determined to live. I still cant believe she is gone. I cant believe I have the rest of my life without her. I of course think of her everyday and miss her everyday but some days just kill me. Anyhow, it was nice to talk to my dad and learn some things I didn't know. He said she didn't know believe she was losing her battle until about a week before. She started to give away her clothes to her sisters and close friends, this I do remember. My heart aches thinking of her last week. She loved the Lord and she went in peace. I miss her so much.

oh wow, I'm so sorry about your mom, I can't imagine! I lost two of my grandparents to cancer- such an awful disease!

Saying a prayer for you!

Hey, I just found your blog via Isle 12. This post made me cry because I lost my mother recently. Uhh, I am starting to realize that you never get over that. Funny, I kept a old datebook she kept in her purse because it had her handwriting and list of things to do for my wedding and various Christmas lists. It's just nice to be able to look at that stuff from time to time! Anyway, sorry for babbling.
