Love is just a memory now

my beautiful mama’s 62nd birthday should be celebrated today

instead it is an emotional day for me/us

it has been nearly 10 years since she left this earth

some days the emotions are stronger than ever

Her birthday is always one of those weepy days

I wanted more years with her

I wanted her to love on my babies

and watch them grow

this was the last picture I had taken with my mom

February of 2001

see Abby bundled in my niece’s arms

she was 4 months when my mom passed away

it breaks my heart that my babies never got to know her

she was really good with kids  =)

This picture was taken on her last birthday

Jan 19, 2001.

Happy Birthday mom…

I miss you all the time…

I love you!

I hope that you are watching my babies grow from heaven!

xo xo xo

your youngest daughter


To all my bloggy friends that still have mamas on this earth…

Cherish every moment ~love love love them!

Seize as many days/moments as you can with your mamas!

You are blessed!!

    Jenn, my heart is aching for you. Your mother sounded amazing, and though sadly your children didn’t ever meet her in person, it sounds like you do a good job of keeping her alive in memories. Sending hugs your way. (((hugs))))

    So sorry to read you lost your mom at such a young age… life just isn’t fair. I am also reminded that I have limited time to be a mom here on earth too; what kind of memories am I creating?

    Hugs from Oregon to you and yours:)

    Oh, Jenn! I cannot even imagine! After losing my dad at the end of 2009, I think about what it would be like to lose my mom – I can’t even go there!
    I grieve with you and hope that today is filled with all the good memories you had, and that you pass on her legacy of being a good mom…because you certainly are a good mom!!!! And I’m sure she is looking down on heaven, proud of her little girl who is doing such a fine job with her grandchildren.

    Cherish them indeed. I have my mom, but I lost my dad, so I understand your pain and emptiness.

    I’m sorry that you lost your mom so early! What a heartbreak. However, I know that you are a wonderful mother just like your mom, and I KNOW she is looking down on all of you!

    I can’t imagine losing my parents. I am so thankful they are healthy!
