572 days ago today the world lost an angel. It is hard to believe that it has been that long since I saw my mom, spoke to her, held her hand.
Today would have been her 64th birthday.
I have decided to take this time to write and share a letter to my mom.
You were always more than a mother to me; you were my best friend. Not a day went by that we didn't speak on the phone or see each other. I shared everything with you and I am so thankful for the relationship we had, I wish I told you more often how much you truly meant to me.
Today is your birthday, and if you were still here with us, I'm sure we would be out at the house having a BBQ or taking you out for supper. You never wanted anyone to spend any money on you, always putting everyone else above yourself, but your birthday was one day that we would finally get you to give in and allow us to spoil YOU!
I know you are still with me, but it's just not the same. I miss you everyday, and every special occasion makes it harder. I just hope that you are at peace, enjoying yourself and having a party today, of all days! You certainly deserve it for everything you have done for all of us.
Love you always,
