I have been in a horrible mood all day. Just really tired and grumpy and feeling like I'm about to lose it. And DH came home and asked, "Is it because of what day it is?" and I realized it was.

On December 21, 1989, my stepmother, who rescued me when my mother decided she didn't want to be my mother any anymore, was hit head on by a drunk driver and died immediately. I was 17-years-old and a senior in high school. She was a wonderful mother. In the year-and-a-half she was in my life, she was more of a mother to me than my "real" mom ever was. Because of her, I went to college, got my teaching degree, took voice lessons. I feel blessed that she was in my life.

I miss her so much. I miss her for the grandmother she would have been to my children, and the step-mom she could have continued to be for me.

May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace, Amen.

I love you, Carol.

That's what happens to me whenever I try to forget the anniversary of Phoebe's death. It's better to just plan on being a bit out of sorts and go easy on yourself and maybe reschedule any stressful appointments.



Carol sounds like such a wonderful Mom and I'm so glad you had her in your life.
