I am participating in the Slice of Life Story Challenge (SOLSC; #SOL16) 
hosted by Two Writing Teachers
Each day for the month of March I will be posting a "Slice of Life". 
Please feel free to stop back and check out my other posts here.



You've missed... 21 years of our lives
     ...marriage, births, deaths, moves, celebrations
     ...getting to know this family of mine

We've missed...having you here for Christmas
...your homemade gifts
...your caring spirit
...your being a part of our family unit

They've missed...having you as a grandma
     ...getting to know you more than through pictures & stories
     ...feeling your hugs, your care, your love

I've missed...being able to talk to you and having you respond
...hearing your voice and knowing you're there
...having a mom

Happy birthday to my mom in heaven. She would have been 77 years old today.


  1. Sending hugs your way. I can not even imagine what it must be like to not have your mom to share things with.

  2. What a beautiful tribute to your mother. I love how you used You've missed...we've missed...they've missed and the most important...I've missed.

  3. Gosh, it's so hard to lose our mother. It's hard not to think about all of the things she's missed - I'm sure you feel her presence and influence on you and your family. Hugs to you.

  4. This brought tears to my eyes, Krista. My father passed away sixteen years ago and we've missed him for many special events. Thank you for sharing this special slice with us today.

  5. Krista, what a sweet tribute to your mom on her birthday. My parents have been gone for 36 years and 25 years and I still miss them every day. Hugs to a new friend!
