Today is normally a pretty somber day for me. Three years ago, my mother passed. She was my best friend, my confidant, and the most loving person I’ve had the pleasure of knowing. It was a true honor to be her daughter.
When I was much younger, I feared I was going to be like her. A silly thing, but now I emulate her in my daily life and would consider myself lucky to invoke her essence. Thank you, mom, for all the joy and love you brought to the world. You made my childhood truly enchanted and eased the pain of becoming an adult.
I love you, Mom.
