Day 295

Mom has now been gone for 10 months. I still miss her terribly and yet life has changed so much, mostly for the better. 

A year ago today, I was dealing with moving out of my childhood home and my mom, whose health was declining. Tonight I attended services with my fiancée and remembered Mom without crying. I thought about how grateful I am for everything she did and provided for me. I also realized that I will be able to give my own daughter things that I did not have (which were not by my mom’s intentional doing or desire), like a loving father and siblings. I can’t wait to meet her.
