Happy Birthday Mom
Today, you would have been 80 years old. I can't tell you how much I miss you. I still have my last mental image of you, sitting in your wheelchair in the nursing home. You were the one who was so sick, yet it was you who was consoling me.
Seven years have passed but it doesn't get any easier. I think of you every single day and wonder why there still isn't a cure for the despicable disease that took you from me. A good friend of mine just lost her mother to cancer yesterday. Why, oh why, can't we stop it?
On this day, the day that will always have a special place in my heart, I think of you and how I wish I could have you back. I know, I know, you always told me that life seems as though it's not fair. Well, it isn't.
Happy Birthday Mom, I love you and miss you so much.
