I decided to spend THIS Mother's Day a little differently than last year. Last year I wallowed in my own self pity. I told Bob that I HATED Mother's Day because I didn't HAVE a mother and I WASN'T a mother.
This year Sonia's mother set me straight on that one too. She told me I will ALWAYS have a mother. She lives in my heart.
So this year I spent the day scrapping my ma. I am so lucky that I have lots of notes and letters from her - so I scanned in one of my favorites. She wrote this after my cancer diagnosis. When she heard that news she mailed a card to me EVERY day. This letter was in the first...
It's hard to read on the LO, but this is what it says:
I don't know how long it's been since I've written you a letter. I do know that I needed to write you this one. I want you to know how proud I am of you and how much I love you. You were dealt a hard blow. I don't know why. You and BT deserve the best life has to offer. I remember how much your Dad loved you and how he held you on his lap and the dreams he had for you. You were my gift to him. I love you Sandi.
My response in my title is... Love you too Ma
