Mother's Day Changed Forever ...

Amber and Jennifer last year ...  happy times :)

This is my first Mother's Day without Amber.  It has been a difficult day without her here with us.  She brought such joy to us in her nearly thirty years on this earth.  It's just not the same without her.  My life changed forever for me and my little family last July 24 ... the night Amber went to Heaven so unexpectedly.

My husband, Jennifer and I had a quiet day together.
Amber will always be in our hearts forever ....
Hold your children a little tighter tonight and never forget to say "I Love You".

God Bless!
Donna

I know this was a very hard day for you Donna. My best friend lost her 17 year old son 5 years ago and Mother's Day has always been so hard for her since then. Like you said, it is never the same. Jennifer's upcoming wedding will be something to look forward to, but a very bittersweet time too. Praying for your family! Love & blessings from NC!

Hi Donna :) It's now Monday morning and Mother's Day has come and gone ... I was afraid it might be a difficult one for you and sent up some prayers for you yesterday. I hope that your heart is a little less heavy today now that it is over. God Bless you my dear and I'm anxious to hear all about the Shower on Saturday :)

I thought about you all day yesterday, Donna. All the "firsts" are so hard.

Put on those purple tennis shoes and do something that Amber loved! She will be laughing in heaven :) And you will feel her spirit!

So very sorry for your sadness on this first Mother's Day without Amber. Those "firsts" are always the hardest! God Bless.

The "firsts" are very hard. I'm sorry for your loss!

Donna, you were on my mind all day. You and Debbie both were having your "first" Mother's Day without your daughters - and I my second without my son. It is so very difficult, I know. Just know that your beautiful Amber is smiling upon you and was giving you hugs all day.

Stay strong....God is there for us, always.

((hugs))

God bless you Donna!!! And your family!!!

This is my first visit to your blog and I feel sad about your precious Amber! My mother just went home to Jesus April 27 so it is a fresh feeling for me. She would have been 83 the first of May and Mother's Day was also different for me. But This IS NOT the same as your dear child! Your Amber is 2 months younger than my daughter Donna. I'll pray for you all. You WILL be reunited with Christ!
