I forgot my Mom on Mother's Day...
I 100% completely forgot to send my Mom even a card on Mother's Day! I'm not joking. Sure we talked twice that day, but I'm not sure how it happened. I remembered flowers for Edith & DeArley, but when it came to sending my Mama ANYTHING, it just slipped my mind! Honestly. I am slightly horrified that I even admitted that to her on the phone, but until that exact second when we were talking, I didn't realize it! Sorry Mom, for my honesty, just know that our almost daily talks clouded my thinking and I forgot! You know I love you. You know my heart aches for you every second. You know that when I call and you are busy I'm kind of sad because we can't talk as long. You know that I come to you for everything. You know I would be utterly lost without your voice. You know I love your smile. You know that I trust you. You know I value your opinion. You know that as long as we can talk, I'll be ok. You know that when you say you have to go, I'll find a way to keep talking. You know that you will receive yard sale jewerly from me. You know it hurts my heart when I can't help you set up, bake and clean up after holiday dinners. You know I would be there if I could. You know I miss your food. You know I would help you if I were there. You know I get some of my crazy-ness from you. You know I heard you when you counseled me about a large family. You know how much my heart breaks when we have to let go and say goodbye. You know I crave your lemon squares, your enchallidas and split pea soup all the time. You know listening to Barry White music when the boys were gone was a little weird. You know I appriciate you. You know I got my desire to serve others from you. You know just what to say when I need to hear it. You know when I need to hear the truth and you give it. You know when I'm lying. And I hope you know I am really sorry for not sending you a Mother's Day gift. You should know I'm mailing it out today. You are my world and I love you.
