Today marks the first anniversary of my mother's death. It does not seem like that much time has passed, but it has. Thanksgiving will always be tied in with her passing.
I have found that regardless of the dynamics of your relationship with your parents, their passing will always leave an indelible mark.
I came on here with the intention of writing something thoughtful, something heartfelt. I even contemplated using the letter that I wrote on her birthday this year.
But instead I will mark this day with simply saying that we remembered, and we will never forget.
