Approaching a Sad Anniversary

This time last year my mom was very sick.  Little did we know that her body was full of cancer.  It started with (what I found out later to be) an excruciating headache. Then came the dizziness, Then the vision changes, Then nausea. Six weeks after the symptoms started she was dead. Even though we’re less than three weeks away from the year anniversary of her death I still can’t believe she is gone. We took her and all she did for granted. Maybe because we didn’t really know how hard everything was that she was doing? Maybe because we didn’t want to know? There’s so many things that I want to say to her and about her. I miss you, Mom. I wish you were here. You were a great Mom and you left us too soon.
