Mom would have been 78 today but she died in May after her health had rapidly failed for about six months.
Fortunately she enjoyed good health up to then.
She was so infuriatingly stubborn about some things sometimes, but she was also a great friend and always wanted the best for me.
I have regrets but I know they came from the mistakes of youth and inexperience, and she always loved and forgave me.
The pain has subsided over the past few months, but not today.
Today it’s like the world has stopped for me again.
I love you Mom and I miss you so very very much.
