Today just won’t stop coming. Every year September 14th creeps up on me again. Each year is another birthday my mom spends in heaven. Today she would be 78… I keep kidding myself thinking it will be easier. Then the day comes, I wake up and tell myself, “You need to call mom!” Then the memories flood back. Like a television show flashback. And my mind then reminds me, she’s dead. Emotions flood me and I realize this just doesn’t seem to be getting an easier.
My mom and I had out differences of course. We fought and made up. Ups and downs, highs and lows. But our relationship was close. She was my best friend. I told her everything and welcomed her advice. Even though I didn’t take it most of the time. 😂😂
Life is different without her and today I just wanted to reach out to those of you who feel like I feel. Who have had to say goodbye to someone so close to you. I’m reaching out to those of you who wake up in the morning and for a split second forget that a part of their heart is shattered. I pray for you. It’s not easy, please know you are not alone.
So Happy Birthday, Momma.. I love you. Enjoy your special day in heaven. Forgive the tears that are shed for you today. I know you want me to be strong but I am only human.
