Missing My Mother - Ten Years Today

It has been ten years ago today since my mother died. Marian Beth "Bonnie" 1/18/1928 - 3/14/1998. Although I miss her terribly, she is always in my heart. After she died, I found "Mother", a poem by Max Ehrmann that I thought fit just what I was feeling.

I understand. I miss my Father, who died in 1993. I miss my son, who died at age 25 July 29, 2006. I have a longing for them to be with me again. I understand.

Grief has a way of sneaking up on you. My gran passed away almost a year ago, and I've found myself missing her terribly. Like waking up crying in the night type of grief. She had Alzheimer's for the past 7 years, and I didn't even grieve like this when she died. Grief is like that, I guess.... Jenny
