Twenty Years Ago -- Entry for March 21, 2007

(Moved from previous blog.)

Well, it has been 20 years (yesterday) since my mom passed away suddenly.

It is a really weird feeling. My mom has been gone for more than half of my life.

It feels like it all happened yesterday, though. I remember almost every little thing in great detail!

This year, it has been ok, just feels weird. The 10th year was hard, but the 12th was the hardest. I was planning my wedding with hubby and had a big woe-is-me period. I was NOT happy that she was not there for I know that it sounds weird, but it is honestly what I was feeling.

She passed away when I was 19 and she had just turned 40. My step-dad (only earthly father I have known) passed away when I was 35. I had a hard time then, too, because I felt way too young to no longer have any parents alive....

I may feel a bit down on Saturday (March 24th), because that was the date that she was buried. I often think a lot about her on that date, too. It is supposed to be wonderful weather once again this weekend, so I plan to spend it outside having fun!

Thank you for reading my rambling

Call your parents today and tell them how much you love them!

God bless you always,
