Even though my mom is no longer with us, I still treat this day as if she were here. Today means so much to me. I am grateful that I had my mom with me as long as I did and I am grateful that in the amount of time I had her she showed me so much. Today is always a hard day because I can't help but wonder what would she be like now...what would my life with her in it would be like. She would be in her 50's now and I wonder what her beautiful face would look like now. Today is definitely a difficult day but also a day that I am filled with lots of love and gratitude.
Today and always I will remember my mami as the most important woman in my life. No amount of time will ever change that.
Happy birthday, Mami.
