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!

    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. :)

    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:)

    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.

    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?

    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!

    My father passed away over 19 years ago, my sis­ter 13 years ago, and I still think of them both every day.
