love you mom.

I have to admit.

Even though it’s been almost eight years since my mom passed away,
it still seems weird that she’s not around.

There’s many-a times when something happens in my little family’s life, I think,
‘My mom would have gotten a kick out of this.’

Eight years and I’m still thinking how what happens in my life
would affect her life.

I guess it doesn’t matter how long it’s been,
it’s just something instinctive…innate, maybe.

Wish she could have been around for the big digital age of cameras.
She would have loved that…no printing to see your results.
And she could have seen her results on a big ol’ tv.
She would have loved that.

Anyway, I know she’s up there somewhere watching over us,
so I just wanna say…

love you mom.

miss ya.

Which brings me to today’s freebie…in both US and UK styles. :)

    Oh Kerri, thank you for this freebie, and also your story (and for the help last night). I believe that you honestly never get over losing someone that you are that close to. I lost my big brother nearly 30 years ago, and I am constantly wishing he was a part of something going on in my life, or like you, that’s he would’ve gotten a kick out of it. I know he’s with me, I know he IS getting a kick out of things – just like your Mom is with you. Have a wonderful Mother’s Day, and thank you! :)

    Your story mirrors my own. Oh how I miss having my mother in my life. She’s been gone for over 7 yrs now and I still talk to her every day. I like to think she’s watching over me and my family. Thanks for sharing with us.

    Thank you for the UK version Kerri! So very thoughtful of you. We had Mother’s Day in March, but this sentiment is so useful All year round. Hope you have a wonderful Mother’s Day with your family and hope Zak can wish you a nice day by phone or text (I’m assuming that he’s still in Alaska!).
    Have a super week-end. Love from Scotland xo

    I am so sorry to hear about your mom but I bet she would be mighty proud of you! I hope you have a wonderful Mother’s Day with the kids (even though your son is in Alaska). Thanks for sharing pieces of your life with us!

    I can understand your pain because my FIL passed away in Feb. and I know this year at his birthday and Father’s Day time it will be hard to think of him not here to celebrate with. I hope the pain lessens over time but you never do truly forget them.

    Wishing you a Happy Mom’s Day too!

    Hello Kerri,

    Love your work, it is always my first stop when I find some time to be online. Wondering if you can help… I would love to download this file, I am working on a memory album to celebrate the life of my Mother in Law who recently passed away. I am hoping to have it ready for her Memorial service. But I am having difficulties downloading this file (it would be perfect for her book!). Did I just miss the timeframe?

      Hey Sandy! It’s still available. Try using a different browser.
      I know there was problems with the most recent version of Safari.
      If you still can’t get it, email me at and I’ll send it to you. :)
      And I’m sorry to hear about your MIL.
