I never knew it would feel this way.

People would often tell me that when someone as close to your heart as your mother is, passes on, there is a void that occurs that never leaves.
I didn't understand, then. I do now.
My mama left this place last July   see blog post here----> 'sailing away'

Some days I don't think of it, some days the void comes out of no where, like a freight train rolling through in the middle of the night, unstoppable and overwhelms my thoughts.  I want my mama back, and nothing will change that, I can't bring her back, and nothing will change that.
She was an magnificent, wonderful, lovely, incredible mom.

Spend time when you can, with those you love, it is much more important then bicycling, work, houses, and employment, and a lot of other things we wrap our self's around. There will be plenty of time to spend on our passions. My mama would most always say when I was visiting, did you ride your bike today David. :-)

This is the second Mothers Day without my Mom, but I bought flowers and have them in a vase that I gave her when I was about 6. I miss my Mom too, and like you, I had a very special Mom, and I think of her at least once a day.

I love the first photo you posted of you with your Mom and the Wonder Bread! It is priceless. The second/last photo is lovely too, both of you with wonderful expressions.

I bet your mom was really proud of you Davie G, especially when you stopped over to visit via your bike!

Your mom's love still lives on. Bless your mama on Mother's Day.

She stayed with me all day. These were difficult hours, glad it's over.

Well said.

My mom is still here, though 3000 miles away. It's been about 2 years since I've seen my parents - way too long. We email and talk on the phone often though.

The early photo of you two is a classic. Wonder Bread and the station wagon included.
