My Love for you Transcends the whole Universe...

Years ago I got a card from my mom that said “My Love for you Transcends the whole Universe, no wonder I’m a little spaced” If you knew my mom you would understand it was right up her alley... I actually think I might still have that card. Actually I really hope that I still do. My mom loved with everything she had, she would give you her last dollar if you asked and wouldn’t think twice before giving you the coat off her back in the middle of winter. My mom was a friend to anyone and everyone no matter what.

My mom had an incredible spirit and a love for life despite everything she had been through.

My mom would have been 60 today... she’s been gone for 16 years and there are no words to describe how much I miss her. Sometimes I feel like I’m forgetting her.. But then something happens and I’ll hear her voice in a dream or I’ll catch a whiff of her perfume. As I was packing the other day I found a t-shirt I have of hers that was hanging on a hanger in the back of the closet and I held it close.... and it still smelled like her. I just smiled and held it a little longer before I folded it up and put it into the basket with the rest of my clothes.

If you’re lucky enough to still have your parents.. Love them because you never know how much time you have left with them, grandparents too.. I don’t have either anymore and if you know me... I am very willing to sort of adopt parents as my own.

That’s my little PSA of the day...

Happy Birthday in Heaven to My mommy.. My Love for Her transcends the whole universe.
