Mother has been gone now for 2 years and there are days I still wake up thinking I need to visit mom today. Well, in a way, I do visit mom and it's not just in my dreams. My visits come through my thoughts during the day. They come through something said during a conversation and especially looking and talking to my daughter. She spent so many years around mom that she picked up a lot of her traits that I am beginning to see as Amanda gets older. When mom passed, she left her flame of life here on earth and that flame continues in her family that remains and it will continue until we are gone.
"If I had a single flower for every time I think about you,
I could walk forever in my garden."
