Mom, I don't want to adjust to life without you in it. Since you have left this world, the boys have turned 7 years old, I have had my first birthday without you, and we are approaching the first Mother's Day on Sunday w/o you. It just doesn't seem right. Spring time is now here and I know you loved this time of year. I am grateful for the time we got to spend together toward the end and that we got to say goodbye. Five months ago today I lost a part of me. Words cannot express the loss. I miss you and love you.
