I'm One Lucky Girl To Have A Beautiful Mom

I was going along in this "Thing called Life" when my world was turned upside down. I always worried about what hard thing would happen to me what sort of trails I would have to overcome. I never thought for a moment it would be losing my Best Friend in the whole world. About a year and a half ago my sweet mom was re-diagnosed with Breast Cancer (The first time she was diagnosed was in 1998 and it was small and we took care of it agressivly and felt very confident about her chances after that) She found a lump on her neck and was very worried. When she went in it was stage 4 Breast Cancer and she was given 3 years to live. She did chemo and alot of natural things but Heavenly Father had a different plan for my Mom. She was called home to be with her Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ on March 12 2007. I was there when she sweetly left this life and passed through the veil into the spirit world. I know where she is and this is a great comfort to me. I miss her more than words can say. Somtimes I wake up and I think this is a huge nightmare and I want it to go back to the way it used to be. I grow stronger daily in spirit and strength. I try to keep and eternal perspective I know she is my mother for eternity, no one can take away my eternal family. I feel her often and have many experiences to let me know that she is with me often. I love you mom for ever and ever.

Thanks so much for that post, you're right she is sooo beautiful. I loved all the pictures. You are a rock! I am continually amazed by how you are able to go through this and still manage to be a mom, wife, sister and friend. I'm proud of you!

You are the Woman! You know... (if I may be cheezy for a second) It sure is nice to know the larger picture of our lives. Your mom is a part of you, and part of your other siblings too. Her looks, personality, and desires she had for her kids carries on through you and when you look at yourself in the mirror know that not only is she behind you in everything you do, she will always be a part of you. I admire your ability to deal with this huge change in your life. You will make it a possitive change and that is one great thing about you. Not only are you a rock like Ginnie says, you also rock! (and Ben's igneousity is of very high quality also)
