7 Reasons I miss my mom

7 Reasons I miss my mom

By: Dasha hoskins

 It's been over two years since my mom passed away. Here's my top reasons why I miss my mom.

1. She's my mom.

Especially, for those of us who were lucky to know her and love her.

2. A woman at my age really need her mom right now for advice.

I'm going on 28 this year, and I'm quite lost in life.  I'm finding my way, but it's been a struggle to make it this far.  I will continue on in her name, because I hope she would be proud of what I have done so far.

3. She won't ever see me start a family or have kids.

Not saying I will ever settle down, or have a kid.  But, if I ever do, I know my heart will break and be so full of love at the same time. It breaks my heart to even think about it, honestly. 

4. She won't get to see me walk the line at my college graduation.

I'm going for my Bachelor's in Emergency and Disaster Management.  This is a big thing for me, and she's not here to see me through, and watch me walk the line on graduation day.  Even when I aim for my Master's in Emergency and Disaster Management and Homeland Security.

5. She doesn't get to see my nephews grow older.

The oldest nephew remembers her very well, he just doesn't really talk about her.  I think he misses her, just doesn't know how to say it.  The youngest, yeah he remembers her, but as he grows older I fear those memories will begin to fade.  He was only five at the time after all.

6. She's doesn't get to hug us when my sister and I really need that hug.

My sister and I have both gone through a lot in the last few years.  She definitely has that's for sure in her health.  She's getting there, and so am I with my mental health journey.  But when it comes down to it, we both miss her, and talk about her when we can.  We just miss her.

7. She isn't here.

Plain and simple.  She. Isn't. Here.  

Trust me, there are tons of reasons a 20 something can miss her mom. But some of you are the lucky few, who still have their mom. I'm grateful for the time I had with her and the knowledge I gained and didn't realize it. She has taught me many things even now.

I miss you mom.
