May 7, 2013:
Do you ever long to just be close again to someone you loved so much...? I know I do. My Mama left this world for a far better place seven years ago today. I still have to pinch myself when I realize that it has been that long already...and yet she still seems so near. Only those who have experienced this understand what I mean.
