Three Years Without

Mama (1943-2003) (1/6)
My moth­er passed away exact­ly three years ago today. There is no day passed that I didn’t think about her. There is so few things left to do for peo­ple you love who have passed, if any. It’s kind of frus­trat­ing. All I can do every year on the anniver­sary of her pass­ing is do some­thing that I think she would like. I thought she would appre­ci­ate me tak­ing pic­tures just for her if she knew that I was into pho­tog­ra­phy, so I decid­ed to cre­ate Three Years With­out, a pho­to essay about her.
Any­way, Troy and I are going up to the cot­tage today for the long week­end. See you guys on Mon­day night!

  1. What a love­ly essay, Fir­da. Your mum was beau­ti­ful, and she’d be so proud of you.
    Anniver­saries are dif­fi­cult, I know. My mum passed away six years ago, and I still miss her every day.
    Be well today. I’m sure your hus­band will take care of you. :)

  2. Your pho­to set and sto­ry are so touch­ing, Fir­da. In them I can feel your love for her and how much you miss her…
    Have a nice week­end dear:)

  3. I lost my moth­er on August 11, 2001. I have many of the same thoughts and feel­ings you do.
    While I’m not a Celine Dion fan, I find the lyrics of “I’m Every­thing I Am Because You Loved Me” make me feel bet­ter. They’re like a thanks­giv­ing prayer to her.
    I wish you peace­ful mem­o­ries.

  4. You appear to be still griev­ing after three years. In fair­ness to your­self and those around you some might say “Its time you learned to move on!” Yes, it is right and it is healthy to grieve …but for how long?

  5. My Mom was my best friend and passed away in 1998 at age 60. I miss her every day and cer­tain­ly under­stand how you feel. I loved her so much!
