One Year Later…

Today marks the one the anniversary of my mom’s death.

One year ago, I said goodbye. One year ago, I watched you die. One year ago, my heart was ripped in two. One year ago, I said, “I love you!”.

Living this past year without my mom is not something easily put into words.  It’s not something that I can describe in a blog or in tear filled eyes to my friends and loved ones.  This past year was painful.  The most painful year of my life.  Grief does something to a person.  They will never be the same.  I will never be the same.

When my mom took her final breaths, I curled up in her arms, hugged her neck and said, “Go to Jesus.”  I have no doubt that my Savior came and took her home. I have no doubt that she is in the presence of the Almighty King, laughing with angels and dancing with my daddy.  I am blessed to know she has no more pain, that her suffering is over.  Our time on this earth is just a fleeting glimpse.  But when you are stuck in this time, it feels like forever.  It feels like forever since I saw her face, heard her voice or touched her hand.  It’s the little everyday things that you miss the most. 

My family is coming in to town today for our traditional balloon release. 

Here are some pictures from our balloon releases over this past year.

I send up a prayer today for all the families all over the world that are suffering through grief.  To the wives, mothers, sons, etc. that are saying goodbye to their loved ones as I type.  And to all the ones who were not able to say goodbye before their loves ones passed.

Love you Mom!!!
