Hard to believe that 5 years ago today I said good-bye to Annie. It's still as fresh in my mind, and as sharp in my memory, as it was the day she died. Those years have tempered the pain a bit - and opening up here a while back helped - but I still think of her daily and miss her all the time.
Especially when I'm putting groceries away, which is something I just did. That was my phone call time with her.
So today I'm going to raise my glass of wine, toast my mother, and tell her again how much I love her and miss her.
