She never failed to tell me good morning and goodnight. She never failed to remind me that I was loved. She never failed to tell me that she was proud of me.
I want to share with you the letter I sent my mom on Mother’s Day, one year after she passed away.”
Last Mother’s Day, I lost my mother to cancer. As a tribute to her, I’m mailing my card to heaven this year. Moving on is such a strange term. I don’t want to pack you away and say ‘would have been’ because now it has been long enough since she died that almost all my memories of her are gone. It has also been long enough since she died that now writing letters like these can heal your pain and ache. Heaven is a beautiful place and it seems as if they had taken just the right people there because no one should have to go through what we’ve been through or anywhere near close.”
This year, this will be my first Mother’s Day without my mom. I’ll miss her. I’ll always miss her. She will always be in my heart. I am so grateful for the time we had together, and for her love and guidance.
