My mom was amazing
This is my beautiful Mother.
I was struggling a bit with this today because it has been 10 years since she passed. They say it doesn’t get easier it just gets different. I guess they are right. But the 10 marker is exceptionally hard. Not sure why.
These next few months are difficult it starts with mothers day, her birthday and then sadly her passing.
Almost a month after she passed away My husband and I got married. I remember her begging me in ICU that no matter what happens please still have the wedding. She said no matter what she will be there. And she was. We got married on the beech and we had a dozen roses to represent her. Well there was a hurricane on the island and it brought in some strange weather. During our wedding we had a double rainbow out in the ocean and dolphins playing by the shore. (Have pics to prove it.) My Aunt Carolyn said Look Shannon your mom is here. I immediately started to cry. So mom you kept your promise. And I know you are there everyday after that too.
My mom was beautiful, kind, free spirited, VERY VERY WISE, independent, determined, creative, fair, generous, loving and oh so funny! I miss her so very much and it seems unfair at times that you were taken away from us so soon.
Everyday, when I was very young, we would eat spaghetti Os and watch the Dukes of Hazard and color in our coloring books. I remember she would color the Barbie dog green and I would get very upset with her. LOL
Anyway, I love you mom. Maybe I can give you a huge hug in my dreams tonight.
