My mom left yesterday and I'm just a little sad. A month seems like a long time, but no time is ever enough with my mom. The time flew by and the house seems empty now. It didn't really hit me that she was gone until I got home yesterday and I saw the chair she sets in with the computer still set up for her. Even though there were many days we would sit here in comfortable silence, the house seemed oddly quiet.
We did a lot of fun things; wine tasting, bbq, happy hours, a concert, shopping, dinners with friends, etc. But, the best times were the quality times together just talking or watching old videos. My mom is my very best friend in the whole world. I can talk to her about anything and know she will ALWAYS be there for me. There were times while she was here that I got a little frustrated with her and maybe snapped at her a little bit. When I went in her room yesterday, I wished I could take back all of those times I snapped at her. I don't know when I will get to see her again and I should have been cherishing the moments we got to spend with each other instead of getting frustrated. I'm sorry, Mom!
A mother's love really is unconditional and I'm so happy that God chose her to be my mom!
I love you, Mom! I can't wait to see you again!
