It is so true. It will be 12 years since my 20 year Daughter passed away come May, and I still have days. It's does become different, and I miss her, I will always miss her, but I remember her more with smiles than tears now.
Did you know what the cost of being a mom is? This is so true--though I have a hard time with it. When my kids hurt and/or are having a really difficult time with things in life that just kind of slap them in the face, that's hard.
