A Letter To My Mother

Dear Mama,

Today marks a whole year since you left here. It’s amazing that it’s been that long. Actually it’s probably been the shortest year of my life. I didn’t think that I would ever get used to you not being here. My faith really is getting me through. It gets a little easier everyday. I still miss your presence. The thousand phone calls a day while watching the same TV shows. The laughter and the fun. You taught me so much about life and for that I’m thankful. It’s really getting put to use now. I think you would be so proud of me. I’m not exactly where I need to be, but I know you would approve of the work ethic.

I think about the days ahead and I get a little sad. I think about all the things that you are gonna miss, all the things I still need guidance for. Wedding, babies…all those milestones. It’s scary to know that I will be doing that without you. But I know you’ll be there in spirit. You are loved and truly missed.

Love always,
