Remembering Mom

Today marks the five years since my mother passed away. Though another year has passed, her smile is still fresh in my memory. I still have those flashes when I get excited to share news of our lives with her, and then know I can't. I think of her a lot, especially now that our son has headed off to college; she'd be as proud of him as we are. At those moments I pray just a little more that she knows and is smiling.

So today I will relish all the memories. The sadness will be there, and a tear or two, but I will try to focus on her smile, her love for her family, the countless dog toys delivered at every visit, and the never-forgotten cards and calls on birthdays and holidays. And the hugs. Mom never missed a chance to give a long, hard hug to those she loved. Those I miss the most.

I love you mom, and miss you still.

Requiescat In Pace

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them.
May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
