Saturday marked 16 years of my mom's passing. Ripped away from us by that ugly C word. 16 years of missing. I'd like to say that the tears have stopped, but sadly they have not. The missing....that will never end. On top of that Saturday would have also been our Chloe's 14th birthday. I will forever feel that my mom sent her to me to get over my extreme grief....it did. That I am thankful for. Chloe's entry into our lives did change everything after as did my mom's death. Two events. Life changing. Life does go on and I'm okay. I can be sad, I can cry and I can shake a fist at the sky, but I'm okay!!!!
