Thursday, my mom would have been turning 51. It amazes me how I count down the days. It is like I start mourning all over again, and it has been 12 years. I can't help but think of all the things she has missed out on. Anyone else ever do this?

I think we all do this. Today is my cousin's birthday, he would have been 32. Although my journey is shorter than yours, 4 years next month...I do the same year after year. It always starts when I realize his birthday is coming up and I stay in my grief through his death date. That is the hard thing about having those dates so close together for me. There are a million what if's and why's. I am sorry for your loss.

Well all i can say is its only the beginning for me as my sons birthday is coming closer 30/08 & i know it will be a very emotional & sad day for all his family and friends .My youngest son had his 16th birthday in june and it was very hard for us all but even more for him as he was there to celebrate his brothers (Corey) 16th and his brother wasn't here to celebrate his. So its a year of firsts for our family.
