Oh Linda. I'm sorry. This will be the first Christmas for me without both my parents. I miss them both and especially the little every day stuff like that.


I am so sorry. Hugs!!

but do you remember her favorite holiday tradition? Maybe you and the family can do something you know she enjoyed together and celebrate her too :)


I'm so sorry Linda! Hugs!!!!!! This time of year brings all sorts of feelings bubbling up to the surface.

I'm so sorry. I feel that way too and its only been 7 or 8 weeks for me. I can't remember my dad's voice. That is what is killing me. I know I can go find my wedding video (and I thankfuly still have a VCR) but I just haven't. Yesterday, my mom had a pile of clothes on the couch and asked if I wanted anything. I took one of his U of U sweatshirts. It smelled like him and it made me happy/sad.

I have tears for you and me and everyone who has lost anyone.


It has been almost 3 years since my mom passed away and I still try to call her when my kids do something wacky. It sucks. A lot.


Sending love and hugs.


This hurts my heart :( I'm so very sorry. I hope it gets easier for you. I lost my mom from our lives before she died, not that it makes it any easier, but I feel the unfairness of it all, all the time.

I just wanted to let you know how much I love and appreciate your blog. Something about what you write and the way you write it makes me feel good.
I think you and your family are very special and I'm so thankful you share yourselves with us.
Thank you.
