Letter to Mama
Today is that day. I guess you can call it your birthday in a way or your anniversary or something. You went home to God 16 years ago. While it was the most painful day of my life, I am grateful of where you are and who you’re with. I was thinking about it earlier in the week and realized you’ve been gone for a third of my life now. That threw me for a loop. How could I not see my Mama for a third of my life? That just baffles me.
I am not in the place in life I wanted to be. I hope you didn’t see all the chaos and drama that happened since you left. It took its toll for a while. I had to work hard to get life back on track. I think it’s almost there. Maybe. I finally did something you really wanted me to do; I finished college! Mama, I didn’t think I would ever finish but I did. It hurt that you weren’t here to talk to about it. That would have been the icing on the cake.
I miss you so much, Mama! I love you. I’ll see you and Daddy again. I just have some more living to do for now. But I miss you both so much!
