7 Years To This Day

Maxine







My mother died this day 7 years ago. Sometimes you get caught up in everyday life and you forget about the ones you love. You go on, but you can't forget. This morning is different for me because of where my life is today. Some, say you are were you are in life because it's meant to be. I don't always buy that reasoning.

For what it's worth today, I wish I were back in California to be around the people I love and have been around when times were tough.

My mother always smiled when you walked in the door, and always greeted you with a good morning, or good afternoon, and good evening when she answered the phone. I miss our talks when I needed to tell someone, how I was feeling. That is one thing that you miss, is calling her and telling her your day or just to say hello and see how she's doing. 

It's a day of remembrance for me and if the weather holds and doesn't rain anymore today, I'll be out walking for you today mom.

I love you momma.
