This past month has been incredibly difficult. I know you know this and have been by my side the whole way.
I keep imagining you hugging me, whispering your words of wisdom in my ear. I’d give anything to hear you now, feel your arms around me while you tell me things I don’t want to hear but need to; things only a mother can say in a way that is both sobering and full of love.
Life isn’t the same without you. You always tried to convey that feeling to me when you spoke about your mom. I don’t think it’s anything anyone can truly understand until they too have lost their mom.
Anyway, I miss you. I love you.
Keeping my eyes open for signs of you, your messages.
