    I know for me I really miss the way it felt to hug my mom.

    This also may be hard to understand but I miss the way I used to say “Mom” or “Mommy” when I was actually calling to her. Just felt different.

    I miss gardening and planting with her in the spring and summer.

    I miss the way she used to snort a little when she would laugh really hard.

    I’ve just noticed that it’s the little things that I miss the most. I mean, of course I miss the big things but I find myself trying to remember all the small lthigns that really made her her.

    I miss my mom brushing my hair for me. She used to do it every morning.

    I miss her nagging me to eat my breakfast.

    I miss hearing her blow dryer in the morning.

    I definitely get what you mean about the way you used to say mom. It’s definitely the small things that catch you off guard when they pass. And I also try desperately to remember.

    I miss the sound of my dad’s voice from the sideline of every sporting event I ever played in growing up. He always knew the right thing to say or do, even more so than any coach I’ve ever had. His voice is something I wish I could hear again and would do anything to get back. I miss his hugs after the games and even his advice and constructive criticism during the car rides home. I’m scared of forgetting his voice.

    I miss his laugh. He lit up a room with his laughter and was always the life of the party. I try to remember how much he lived life to the fullest and I attempt to live as vivaciously as he did.

    Although it is difficult to remember every little detail of your parent after they are gone, the little things often come to you when you least expect it. And at first these memories are bittersweet but in the end they always bring me a big smile and I’m grateful for them.
