Days like today

It's days like today that are hard. It's not a particular day. Just that it's about 2pm. Brian is gone to spend the afternoon with a friend who is moving far away in a month or so. The kids are entertaining themselves. It's times like this that I would be calling mom. There isn't anything in particular that I would be calling for, but a lot of the times there wasn't.
I can't believe that I will never be calling her again.

I am so sorry you are missing your mom. I lost my dad when I was younger, but lost my best friend in 2005, she was like a mom to me, the one person I would call. I wish I could say things get easier but it doesn't always feel like it. If you ever need me for anything or need to talk please write me, you know how.

Lori (Emma's Mom)

I can only imagine how hard it is to lose her... all those little moments you shared make everyday a reminder. ((HUGS))

Well named post. . .It's time like those when you're going to miss her. So, well worded, I think sharing this feeling ministers grace to anyone who has ever lost and missed a loved one. I hope there are some sweet for you soon. -ren
