I SAT UP IN BED THIS MORNING AND STOPPED AND THOUGHT ABOUT HOW MANY TIMES I SAID THE WORD "I" WHEN I STOP AND THINK ABOUT IT I REALIZE THAT THERE PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO ARE IN THE SAME BOAT. YET THEY THINK "NO ONE ON THIS EARTH IS GOING THROUGHT THE SAME THING AND THEY WILL THINK I AM CRAZY." SO WE LIVE IN A PRIVATE HELL OF GREIF AND WORRY WHAT OTHERS WILL THINK OF US. NOW I MAY NOT KNOW WHAT YOUR RELATIONSHIPS YOU HAD WITH YOUR MOMS. BUT WHAT EVER THE CASE WE STILL LOVE THEM. AFTER ALL THEY WERE EXCITED THAT WE WERE ON OUR WAY INTO HER LIFE. WE WERE NURSED, DIAPERS CHANGED, HAVE EVERY CUT HEALED MY A MOTHERS TOUCH. WHEN WE WERE KIDS WE THOUGHT NOTHING COULD EVER HAPPEN TO MOM. WE HAD THOUGHT MOM WAS WONDER WOMAN OR SUPER MOM. IN OUR HEARTS AND MINDS WE STILL THINK THAT. BECAUSE WE WANT THAT SECURITY BUT AS WE GET OLDER WE COME TO REALIZE THEY ARE STILL OUR HERO. REMEBER TOO SHE DIDN'T HAVE TO LOVE AND TAKE CARE OF YOU. BUT AT TIMES YOU MAY THINK "SHE IS SO OUT OF THE CENTURY" BUT ALSO REMEMBER SHE WAS IN YOUR SHOES. SHE KNOWS WHAT IT IS LIKE TO BE IN LOVE AND HAVE HER HEART BROKEN AND KNOWS WHAT COLLEGE LIFE WAS LIKE. BUT IN MY CASE I WENT TO ANNAPOLIS AND TOP GUN, SO EACH AND EVERYONE OF US ARE ALL EQUAL AS WE THINK ABOUT MOM. SO THE NEXT TIME YOU THINK OF THE WORD "I" JUST REMEMBER THE PERSON WHO GAVE HER LIFE TO YOU SO YOU CAN LIVE, LAUGH AND LOVE.

A friend sent this to me..As far as I can see, grief will never truly end.It may become softer overtime, more gentleand some days will feel sharp.But grief will last as long as Love does - ForeverIt's simply the way the absence of your loved onemanifests in your heart. A deep longing accompaniedby the deepest Love some days. The heavy fog mayreturn and the next day, it may recede.Once again, it's...
