    Mama, I guess I’m writing this to you not about you. It was one year ago today exactly that we had to say goodbye. Oh what a year it’s been! Sometimes it seems like you have been gone a long time and others it feels like yesterday. I miss you so much, I have a hard time remembering the softness of your skin, the feel of your shiny black hair. But I won’t forget you, you will always be a part of me. A big piece of who I am comes from you and the memories we shared.
    I can still see your dark glittering eyes, your smile with the one top tooth that just went over your front tooth, but it was still such a beautiful smile, full of integrity, joy, love, a little silliness and mischief even!
    I did my best to keep my promises to you and I think you would be proud most of the time. But having to try to live this life without you, I think is the hardest thing I will ever do. I know you know what I mean because I know how much you love Grandma and you lost a piece of yourself when we lost her too.
    What a gift and a curse to be a mother or a daughter, to grow to know, love and emulate someone so much and then to have to let them go…
    No you weren’t always perfect mama but you always showed us love. I will never forget sitting on your lap as just a tiny girl and you rocking me in that ugly, squeaky gold chair, yup you know the one. But it was the most soothing noise I ever heard because when I laid on your chest I could hear your heart beat, your laugh, the light thud of each pat on my back with the rhythmic sqeak of the springy chair. It was like a lullaby that I’ll remember all the way deep in my soul! And even at 35 you still held my hand, patted my back and even let me snuggle on your lap (before you got to sick and weak). You were everything a mother should be and so much more.
    I won’t forget you, I will never stop talking about you and the times we all shared. I promise we are ok though, we are taking care of ourselves and each other like you asked.
    Happy Mother’s Day tomorrow mom, and just in case I didn’t say it enough…I love you!!!
