I Miss You, Mom ...

Updated on April 22, 2010

I Miss You, Mom ...

I miss the warmth of your gentle hand and the love I felt when you wrapped your arms around me. I miss seeing your smile and the sound of your voice. I miss hearing you say, “I love you.”

I miss saying “Mom” out loud. I miss not getting letters and calls from you just to share our thoughts and day.

I miss your words of wisdom and your gentle ways. I miss the look in your eyes that traveled straight to my heart. I miss the gift of you in the life that I have embraced from the day I was born. I miss YOU Mom!

I miss having you share the feelings that linger deep within my soul; there is emptiness there where you once were. I miss you saying "this is my daughter” and the look of pride you held with each word spoken.

I said goodbye to part of my heart the day you left!

And then, in the Grace of that moment ... I closed my eyes and felt the warmth of your gentle hug once more. I saw your smile as you said my name. I know I can go back into precious memories of you and find your treasured words of wisdom that are protected in a special place deep in my heart. But, I miss YOU mom.

And then an overwhelming sense of peace and love surrounds me because I know you knew and understood each feeling I held within my soul.

The part of me that had to let you go also knows you are the Angel who watches over me. Deep inside my soul I believe there truly is a God and that one day I will walk toward your open arms and hear you say, “This is my daughter; I love you; you can come now”!

And in the peace of that moment, angels flutter their wings and leave me knowing that I must understand. I will be okay, mom, because you are with me in my heart!

Oh, but I do miss YOU mom.

      Georgia, I do share in your sorrow and understand the emptiness when a loved one passes away. Scrapbooking is one way to forever preserve events and memories. However, I've found taking that trip down memory lane can also bring sadness and grief by opening us up to things that once were. Venturing through our memories can be enlightening, but at the same time our pain surfaces.

      10 days ago was the 9th anniversary of the day when my mom passed away. So do I still think of mom everyday and miss her. I will and I am cherishing my memories of those days with her!

      Thank and appreciate your sharing of my sorrow.

      God Bless

      Thank you for your words, Georgia, they mean a lot to me. After more than 10 years, I still think of my mom everyday and miss her. A friend told me once that my mom would live on through me because as long as she is missed and loved, she will never be gone. But, your mom was right, we must accept and let ourselves heal. Cherishing our memories is a precious gift.

      I cry so hard, the deep tugging feeling of heartache about missing my mom. I miss her hugs, her words, her smile, her pet & pet for my Honey(dog).... She is an angle always catches me when I'm fall....

      I'm crying now ....My mom once wrote to me, "Any wound, physical or mental, that is deep heals slowly. No matter what you do to the outside, the healing must come from inside day by day.... Unless there is acceptance of the hurt, your mind can keep the body from healing..."

      Dear Ivori, thank you very much for sharing touching tribute.

      I know that feeling and heartache about missing our mom. She was our angel, she loved us unconditionally and it was forever. I miss her hugs and her smile to. She was there for me when I needed my mom. Thank you for sharing your feelings about your mom. I think we can all relate to that missing tugging feeling in our hearts.
