A Mother's Love

A mother's love can never be replaced.

You can always find someone to confide in. Someone who you can trust with your deepest secrets or your dreams. But, no one will ever take the place of your dear mother.

Losing my mother to ovarian cancer three years ago has been the hardest thing in my life.

I felt as if I was in a box and couldn't breath. So many things happened so fast. My mother was given six months to live, I was making plans for my wedding and I felt I could not cope with so much going on.

When my mother passed away I almost died. I still got married because that was my mother's dream, to see me walk down the aisle and get married in a Catholic Church.

Not long after my mother had passed away my father ended up hooking up with someone we didn't approve of. People always say that with time you learn to cope with someone dear not being around.

For me it's the total opposite. It's a constant reminder that I don't have my mother here to share all my feelings and thoughts. She believed in me and my career moves. Never judged me and I always felt that I could count on her for support.

A mother is the only one that really knows what's going on in your life and is the only person who will never cast judgement on you. No matter how many mistakes you make in life.

Now that my father has a girlfriend it's very hard for me to deal with it and I feel that my father and I are driftiing apart. I've always been close to my parents and I love my father with all my heart! In my eyes my father is my hero!

I just wish my Mother was here to share in my life!!!!!

A Mother's love can never be replaced.
