My mom's been gone for many years. She passed away a week and a half before Christmas when I was 12. Even though I'm in my 50s now, I still miss her. I especially missed her during all the landmarks in my life--graduations, getting married and having children. However, I do have this happy fantasy about her. I imagine her sitting in heaven with all our other deceased relatives sipping on a cup of coffee and looking down at me cheering me on when times are tough, smiling when times are good and looking after my sons now that they're grown and on their own. Happy Mothers Day Mom!
