Yup…today I am older, I turned 59 today.
Photo Taken December 2012
This is a bittersweet day for me…my Mom was 59 when she passed away. I think of my family and how it would be if all of a sudden I just wasn’t there anymore, and it is devastating to think about it, and to feel it every year….I miss my folks more, not less, as time goes on….wondering about all of the great memories we still had to make, the second grandson they never met…they were the BEST grandparents to Bryan if only for a year. I wonder what they would think of the person I have become, I hope they would be happy with her.
This is a photo of Mom and Dad just shortly before they were both gone…my Dad died 14 months after my Mom…he was just 60.
I wish I could say that today feels good…..it doesn’t…..and that is just how it is….tomorrow will be a better day. :) Thanks for letting me be honest, it means a lot…
