Mom, you were ALWAYS there when I needed you, even when we did not see eye to eye. I hope that I was even in part , there for you as much as you were for me. I will treasure the last three months I had with you, even with all the ups and downs. And yes, if I had to choose whether to do it again , I would. You taught me how to continue with a smile, when my world was falling in. Now that my world has fallen in once again, I know that I will be able to pick myself up once again and walk the rest of this road, that will be that much lonlier till I see you again. But I know, soon, we WILL be together again. From Your daughter.ReplyDelete
