|Mom with Lori|
Lori = 3 months and 1 day old
I have been doing this blog for 500 days, which means you have been dead for 502 days.
This number seems inconceivable to me, but it shouldn't.
In my life I have lived through over 19,000 days so far. 500 days is not a significant portion of that number, which means I have lived more days with you alive than with you not alive.
You could not say the same in regards to your mother -- who died when you were 19 years old -- and then you went on to live to be almost 79 years old.
I have fallen behind on blog production, so I am writing this entry over a week later, but this falling behind has nothing to do with how I feel about you, Mom, or the difficult time I am having with missing you at this particular Thanksgiving (as I will describe in another post).
I am done with re-posting content for a while. My new plan for catching up involves about a week of posts of old photos of your family and as many with you as I can share. All new photos that I know I have not shared yet because I have not yet scanned them. These photos will make a tribute to 500 days of blogging and living without you that feels grand enough for that number.
500 days, Mom. I never thought I would make it this far without you.
Reflect and connect.
Have someone give you a kiss, and tell you that I love you.
I miss you so very much, Mom.
Talk to you tomorrow, Mom.

NOTE on time: When I post late, I had been posting at 7:10 a.m. because Google is on Pacific Time, and so this is really 10:10 EDT. However, it still shows up on the blog in Pacific time. So, I am going to start posting at 10:10 a.m. Pacific time, intending this to be 10:10 Eastern time. I know this only matters to me, and to you, Mom. But I am not going back and changing all the 7:10 a.m. times. But I will run this note for a while. Mom, you know that I am posting at 10:10 a.m. often because this is the time of your death.
