Today we would have been celebrating my mom’s 80th birthday. Not a day goes by that I don’t miss her so much that my heart aches. Her legacy lives on. I see her in me and my sisters and my brother. I see her in my daughter and my son and my nieces and my nephews. And I see her in her great grandchildren too. We will remember her love for us and her dedication to family. We remember her laughter. Oh how I long to hear her laughter again. And her singing. I miss her singing. That is what I will remember – love, laughter, and song.
I miss you, Mom. We all do.
