It's impossible for me to believe that today marks 9 years since my mom died. She would have been 53 right now. I wonder what my mom would have been like in her fifties. We've kept on living just like she would have wanted us to...I finished college, got a good job and bought a house; my sister got married; my brother graduated high school and started college; my dad got remarried and my stepmom is wonderful. But still there is a part of me that feels like nothing will ever be quite right because she isn't here. She really was the glue that held us all together.
I love you mom, and I miss you.
