Someone Worth Missing, My Mother

August 12, 2020

I miss her. 

She’s been gone longer than I’d like to admit or internalize. She was taken far too soon. 

I still need her. 

I still love her.

I still long for her, cry for her, and pray fiercely that things were different. 

I miss her. 

She was living beautifully, with comfort and normalcy, and in an instant everything changed. In an instant everything was different. My world collapsed, my heart broke. 

I miss her. 

She fought hard, braved a long and challenging battle. She didn’t lose. She simply gave in to eternity and put her hope and faith into heaven. She gained wings as I was reduced to scattered pieces, raw and destroyed. 

I miss her. 

She’s no longer here. Her earthly body and soul have transformed into her forever being, embraced by God and held by Jesus. She is out of sight, but forever in our hearts. Gone but not forgotten. Beautiful pieces of her remain, they always will. 

I miss her. 

I always will. 

She’s someone worth missing. She’s my mother.
