I threw the Tooth Brushes away...

A few weeks after my mother passed away I remember telling a co-worker, I know she is gone; but I still cannot even throw out her tooth brush. Well this week I took that step, I tossed out her tooth brushes. It is a year today that my mother passed away. I still have not cleaned out her room because when I step in there… her essence is still there.

Time truly passes so quickly, I wish the emptiness would pass as quickly. I loved my mother and didn’t mind taking care of her. I told her I would be there for her in her old age and thank God I was able to. I always felt so bad that she had to endure the cancer and the chemo… both terrible things. And when she heard that the end was near, she quietly accepted the fate and transitioned from life to death and to life again, without a complaint or regret.

I find comfort in knowing she is in a peaceful place and sharing those heavenly blessings with my father and grandparents… and of course our good Lord.

Love you mom, and miss you, I miss you so very much.
