Dana. She is with you for sure. I can feel my mom's presence too! Our mom's love us so much and will always be watching over us... forever. I've heard my mom say to me in my head repeatedly, "Don't be sad JP", "I love you JP". I'm not sure if I'm going a little crazy but it's what I heard. One day we will be with our moms again. For now, mom is watching over us and would want us to be happy. I know she would want us to be happy and enjoy our life.

Hi everyone, today is my birthday and all I can think about is my mom! If she were here she would make sure that my Day was Special, because my Parents lived with me so She did not have to go far to make sure that I had a Great Day!! I can feel her presence all through this House in Her room which is still the same all their stuff still in it, even though it has been almost 2 Years since they Both have passed.  I cannot find the strength to do it if I do I know that it will make it finale and I do not want that. James I just wanted to say Thank You for Your Beautiful Words, you can not Amagine how much it helped me today!! Dana.

awww James, that is beautiful what your mom wrote....I also lost my mom in December, and the grief is heart is was pretty sudden, for her sake I am glad she didn't linger, its so hard to believe....I am sure you will cherish what your mom wrote....thats wonderful, but I know the loss you feel....I am so very sorry....I am grieving too.....its very difficult.....I found out after my mother passed just how much she loved me....she talked about me to everyone she came across, I knew she loved me, just maybe didn't know how much.....hang in there....Rachel

Thank you Rachel. I really really miss my mom today and have a very heavy heart. Here's what she wrote to me on my last birthday in October. She passed in December...

To James

When I gave birth to you, the miracle never left my heart and changed me forever. Every second you are with me is a gift no one could ever put a price on... you are the reason why my life is so wonderful. Please remember I will always love you and thank you for being my son. Love, Mom

What is a mom?
A mom is one of life's best gifts,
Someone to treasure all life through,
She's caring and loving,
Thoughtful and true,
Someone who is always a special part of your life,
Someone who holds a prime place in your heart,
She's a mentor, a confident and also a friend,
Someone on whose love you can depend.
A mom always has your best interests at heart,
She's someone so dear and so good,
She's a blessing, she's a gift,
She's a treasure like no other,
She's someone that is truly wonderful.
Wherever you go, and whatever you do,
A mom’s love will always see you through,
A mom is truly invaluable,
Indispensable and unforgettable.
I wouldn't want anyone but you,
And that's why I'm so grateful,
that life picked you for me.

I love how people are coming together on the site to express their lost, I know that is something that is very hard to do... I would like to thank all of you that have visited my beachbody website, and have started getting thier lives back together via fitness... I know that is something my mother would have wanted for me to do.  For those of you that have not gotten the chance to visit my site, please go to to read my story...I know it is hard to move forward but we have to at our own pace... if you have anything questions please contact me at

i dont really know what to say it going to be 8 months since my mom died and to be honest its passing by so fast. i just wish i could talk to her just for 5 mins if thats all i could get just one hug and to tell her how much i love her and how sorry i am for all the times i acted like a bratt and that i thinkk she was an awsome mom. And the thing i wish the most is that she could see bother her grandsons now walking and causeing chaos lol. life just seems so different without her in it. Its just not fair. i see so many people that disrespect there moms and make them feel like crap and they still have there mom and taking them for granted and its like why cant i have my mom here? im only 21 i still need guidence and advice and nobody is really there. i just seems like the world is giving me a really hard time i dont know why. i barely talk to anyone i dont really have much family around me everyone lives far away. i just have my son and baby daddy. he tries to help but he hasnt ever gone through  any of this so i cant expect him to be very helpful but its nice when he tries.

Well I joined this group because I lost my Mother, on Dec. 11. In the first few days afterwards alot of people told me "if you need to talk I'm here" but it seems like they really meant was " if you need to talk about anything BUT THAT I'm here" and my Mother's passing is never more than a heartbeat from my thoughts and it hurts. Yes the world goes on and work has to be done and by being on auto pilot I go about doing what needs to be done, but inside I'm am screaming "I have lost my Mother and life will never be the same and though I know she is away and the funeral is over, I still can't believe it. I have a heart full of should ofs and if onlys but nobody wants to hear them. And though I am Very Thankful for the birth of Jesus, I cring when 15 people forget and ask if I had a good Christmas and look at me funny when I say I didn't celeabrate it this year. I want to go out to the cemetary but I can't make myself do it yet. I need to make a memorial to this special lady but when I think about gathering pictures and things I have panic attacks or anyways I think thats what it is, chest pains, numb hands, and a splitting headache. I should have been a better daughter. I'm 48 but feel like a child. I don't know if this will help but maybe at least writing my thoughts and feelings down will clear my head. sorry for rambling
