Thank you all who shared their thoughts.
I've tried to leave this msg on the anniversary every year since she passed. We should always call our parents and let them know that we love them, but today is my mom's day. August 13th my mom would have been 58. I have such a hard time imagining my mom that old. She passed away at 50.
For me, it makes me feel better if others call their moms just becase I can't. The thought of a mom getting a call out of the blue from their child just to hear 'I love you' makes me feel so much better about the anniversary. I call it 'love your mom' day. It's been long enough I don't cry all day anymore. I do cry once or twice usually on the anniversary, but that is usually when I ask someone to tell their mom they love them.
I thank you all so much
I feel like the more people who call their mom, shows my mom how much I love her. It just makes me feel better. Thank you so much.
I am sorry for all you who have lost your moms (and dads) I still have my dad, and I fear loosing him. *Hugz* to all of you.
Please keep sharing mom stories, it makes me happy.
