Days like today are so hard when you have lost your mom. I used to spend Mother's Day shopping with my mom, one of our shared favorite activities, or getting pedicures, a close second. Now today is a stark reminder that my mom is gone, and we will never have another opportunity to gossip over mimosas or lounge in the pool and discuss life, love, and the future. I have a wonderful future mother-in-law and some great aunts that help to fill that void, but nothing compares to my mom. I give myself today to be sad, but I know that she is always with me.
I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always. As long as I'm living, my mommy you'll be.
