Screen Shot 2013-06-30 at 4.18.34 PMTuesday, July 2nd this year marks 39 years since the passing of my Mom.


The last week has been kind of an up and down week for me. I’ve had some great talks with friends and with my Mom. I’ve had some downs of really missing Mom as well as some realizations.


Being here in Arizona, I’m going through the ‘firsts’ again. What I mean by that is, the first year after someone has transitioned to spirit, there are firsts:

  • The first birthday without them here in the physical
  • The first holiday (Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving)
  • The first anniversary

Over the last few years, I’ve been able to visit places where Mom would take my brothers and I when we were kids. It’s where the memories were first created. Being here in Arizona, I can’t just run to the Game Farm and go hiking. 


Though she passed a long time ago, this is my first year without here – in Arizona. So it was my first holidays and birthdays (hers and mine) and now her ‘anniversary’ date. I wasn't expecting the 'firsts' to come up again.


A friend said I need to create new memories and she’s right. Mom isn’t here in the physical, but she is here. And she always liked to hike. So I can take her to places I like to hike – here, in Arizona. 


Things that are the same, no matter where I am? I can still light a candle for her. I can still do a meditation with her. I can still talk with her.


I have had a lot of ‘firsts’ this year, but Mom has been with me every step of the way. 


A friend shared a message from my Mom with me today: She says she's one of your biggest fans up in Heaven. "That's my girl, " she says…”


Happy Anniversary Mom, I love you.


Angel Blessings to you.
