Hi Mom, it’s me. Mother’s Day is this Sunday and I am thinking of you. I always think of you, but you are in my mind and in my heart more the month of May. Mother’s Day and your birthday.
I love it here in Texas, and my house is wonderful. I wish you could see it, you would love it. It’s bright and open and lovely. It has a good energy and people seem to love it as soon as they walk in. I am making it a home and it feels so good. I have even planted a vegetable garden in the back, and will be planting a flower garden too. It won’t be as good as yours, bit it’s already good for my first try.
I am happy Mom, for the first time since you passed away, I am finally happy. It has been a long time, and it took a long time to get over the grief of losing so much family in such a short space of time. Last year was especially hard, because of Jimmy dying.
I am doing much better this year, probably because I am so happy. I just had to get out of Georgia and get a new start. I am so happy I left. I love Texas and especially this little suburb. I love the neighborhood and the neighbors are great too. You would love them.
I am also dating someone new. He is wonderful so far and we really like each other. He is smart, funny, well read and a history and political buff. He is one of the only people I have ever met that could talk with and possibly know as much as you. You would like him. He is also mischievous and has a great sense of humor.
I miss you Mom, so very much. So many things I wish I could tell you, every day. I miss our daily conversations and telling you everything. You were my best friend. You are still the first person I want to tell everything to, all the good and bad news. I miss having coffee with you, or a glass of wine at night.
I’ll miss you this Mother’s Day, but I’ll be OK. You don’t have to worry about me. I am your daughter, so you know I’ll fine. 🙂 And I love you so much, you were the best Mom ever. Give Dad a hug for me, please keep haunting me (I love the lights) and please visit me in my dreams.
May: Your birthday, Mother’s day, Rex’s death anniversary, Jimmy’s death anniversary.
