Thank you for your comments Anna I pray it gets better but after 14 yrs it feels like it never will. My prayers got out to all the other members here who are struggling especially hard through this holiday season.

David, I'm so sorry. When I lost my mom I felt like I lost the one person in my life who actually really cared about me and cared about everything I did. I'm told it gets better, but I believe they mean we just get more used to it. I wish I could say something to help you. I'm sure somebody's comments on here will help. At least there are people here who understand.

It is almost another year of the anniversary of my dear mother Ellen's death caused by ALS. People say time heals.....that really is a lie. I still struggle every year with the huge hole her passing left in my life. I still cry thinking how much I miss her and her warm smile and her amazing ability to shed light on life's situations. I miss the magical way she was always able to help me feel like everything was going to be ok. My birthday is Nov 26 and she passed Dec 9th of 2002. I have not had a happy birthday or merry Christmas since. I continue to try and find happiness and peace from the loss of the person I loved the most in this world. I love and I miss you Mom.

Theresa, I'm so sorry. After the first couple months, I asked myself, "How do people do this?" It made me realize there are a Lot of sad people in the world, you just don't know it. Prayers for you.

Anna, my mom passed on 12/19, this year will mark one year.

I have mixed emotions, I cry still everyday, she was all I had and was taken so suddenly and unexpectedly.

This year has been a struggle for me.

Comment by Anna on Tuesday
Thanks everyone who read my story and for your comments and suggestions. I feel a closeness with you and yet I don't even know you. I'm not happy that your hearts are broken like mine, but at least now, I know that there are others out there who know what I'm going through and even that helps. I pray for all of us. God will get us through.

Anna, your story brought tears to my eyes. Many of the stories here do but they also bring comfort somehow. How heartbreaking that your mom passed so close to Christmas. This will be my first Christmas without my mom and it will be a hard one. We always went to her house and she would have all this wonderful food made and we'd sit around and eat all evening long and tell stories on each other and eventually exchange gifts. It was sad to leave when we did. Mom was happiest when all of us kids were there and now I know how she felt. I still have two kids at home and one that lives several hours away and I don't think I'll get to see him this Christmas-that will be another first. It won't be the same but I'm trying to plan ahead a little and do things a little different so we don't all feel the pain of mom not there (even though we will anyway). Dad hasn't been able to keep up with the house on his own and it would take my sister and I a lot to get it ready for company so this year, we will be meeting at my house instead. My sister and I plan to make several of mom's dishes to help us all feel like a part of her is still with us during Christmas. There's just no easy way around Mom not being here anymore but I have to keep trying to put one day together after another until I see her again.

Heather, thank you so much for remembering, you will be in my prayers also.

God Bless

I'm missing my mom so much at this time, and know that here I am not alone in that. As I was saying to Anna, I found a way to cope with the holidays better than last year (by getting out of town for family vacations at these times). But something terrible recently happened and I feel the need for my mom at my side more than ever. We went to our mountain home in Gatlinburg, Tennessee with our whole family for Thanksgiving. We treasured our time together and talked about my mom a great deal. It was so much better than last year. We all planned to return home the following Sunday but my husband and I had to stay an extra day because my dad came down with pneumonia and we had to wait for his hospital discharge. A wildfire had started in the Smoky Mountains National Park about 4-5 miles away from Gatlinburg on November 23. The air was very smoky and burned our eyes and throats, but it seemed like it started to get better so we kind of forgot about it. Before we left on Monday I cleaned and closed up the house. Everything seemed normal when we got on the road. We were home by 7 pm. About an hour later our security system in Gatlinburg alarmed with a glass break/burglary. Right after that the entire system went down so I had no access to the interior or exterior cameras. We called the area police and we learned that Gatlinburg was in flames and people were running for their lives, so of course they didn't have the resources to check on an unoccupied home. The next morning TEMA reported our entire resort burned to the ground, our home with it. The next day they retracted that report because they mistook our resort for the one right next to it (the names are similar). So our home is damaged but it survived. I feel so blessed we were able to leave when we did. I am just so sad about the devastation. The loss of lives, homes, and businesses. I've been talking to my mom through the whole thing. I know she can't hear me, but I talk to her anyway. I don't know how to get through something like this without her.

Losing Someone to Cancer

This is for anyone who has lost somone to cancer. I lost my adopted Mom to breast cancer some years ago. She was everything I could have asked for. She loved me because I was just me. She also loved my family and children as if they were her own.See More

"For me, going back to work was a good thing.  My husband was not a part of my world there, so it was easy to be distracted by work. I hope going back to work gives you some sense of normalcy. "
