Today, it has been one year since my mom passed away. I cannot believe that so much time has gone by--this year seems to have flown past so quickly that I still haven't caught my breath. In other ways, I can't believe it has only been one year. It feels like forever, an eternity. I can go several days in a row before something reminds me of her, and then it's like a bandage has been yanked rather abruptly from a not-quite-healed wound and I'm left with stinging tears and an ache in my heart.
