Today is not for sadness and sorrow, although you might feel that from time to time. Today is for remembering, and for celebrating. Today is for talking about the memories that makes us laugh, cry, and smile. Today is about celebrating the fact that our lives were blessed by our own literal angel on Earth. Things feel far from real no matter how many years it’s been. I would love nothing more than to be able to hug, kiss, laugh, speak, and see you. Some day we will all have the chance to do that again, but until then we will re-tell our memories of you til it feels like you have still been here all along. Memories keep a soul ALIVE. I have the same birthmark as my mother and it is always a constant reminder that I always have her here with me. I’m constantly surprising myself with how I speak, write, and think. It’s then that I realize these are all traits I have gotten from my mother. I couldn’t be more proud of that.
