My Mom

Today is my Mom's Birthday...

This is her wedding day, she was 18 years old and her and my Dad eloped on that August day at the disapproval of both my Grandmas... Moms Mom didn't speak to my Dad for months.
To the right, quite a few years down the road, I was in High school when this picture was taken.

Mom died in 1999 on February 13 at the age of 59 from complications of cancer. I miss her everyday, even 10 years later. We always celebrated her Birthday and Mothers day at the same time.
She was my best friend and I still catch myself thinking "I need to call Mom and tell her ...." Then I remember. My favorite thing to do is dream of her... it is like we are getting to visit.
Anyways, this post is dedicated to her... I love you Mom!

How sad that you lost your mom at such a young age. I think it's terrific that you still celebrate her birthday (and Mother's Day). And how sweet that she still visits you in your dreams. My grandma (who was like a mother to me) died in 1995 and I still miss her, too. I wish she would visit me in my dreams.

Sharon I love that pic of your momma on her wedding day..She was stunning then and in the picture below..

I am sorry that she passed so young. Cancer is a terrible thing. My momma has had it twice now and myself once. I Pray everyday for her health.

Happy Moms Day!
