For my Mom

This morning I've been thinking an awful lot about my Mom. Her headstone was laid recently and it's been about a year since we found out that she wasn't going to make it. It brings back a lot of memories, and as we approach this Easter season I think a lot about her. My Mom was and is an amazing person. She could make a boo boo better and turn the most odd food combinations into a gourmet dinner. She taught me how to have fun, how to be a friend, and how to love. It's been almost a year now since I was last able to hug her, or heck even talk to her. I think that that has been the hardest part for me. We use to speak every day and having to go cold turkey stinks. But I know that she is still my Mom and that she is still watching over us all. And some day, when I've done everything that I need to do, I will get that hug and we'll sit and catch up and it will be wonderful. What a blessing it is to know that we will be a family forever. For that I'm eternally grateful.
