The Missing

Mom would have been 62 today. I miss her very, very much. She was my friend, my role model, my Mommy.

Happy Birthday, Mom. I hope you know you set the bar really high, and I strive every single day to be as good a mother as you were. Thanks for giving me so much to miss when I think of you. And so many good memories to look back on and laugh until my sides hurt.

Today's lessons:
1. Be kind to everyone you encounter.
2. Especially your family.
3. Laugh as much as you can.
4. Check your boobies for lumps, and go to the doctor when you find them.
5. Cancer sucks, but it makes you appreciate what you have. Don't wait for something scary to start appreciating what is right in front of you already.
