Today is the 6th anniversary of my Mom's passing. She battled cancer for almost 5 months and fought a very hard, tough battle. Mom still managed to smile even when she was hooked up to chemo or had tubes coming out of her back. Watching her battle taught me to cherish every moment because you never know what the next moment will bring.
They say it gets easier as time marches on, but I don't think so. I think you just learn to deal with it. I still have moments where something gets me and I end up in tears. I'm sad because I know my future kids will never know her, but I know she'll always be with me, watching over me.
