I miss you. I miss the feeling of really being home, its idyllic warmth and comfort only mothers can fill. It's never the same without you. Sometimes when I wake up in the middle of the night, I get fully conscious that you're no longer here. It becomes excruciatingly painful. The nostalgia can get so unbearable.
But I gather my own strength and peace of mind in knowing that you're in a much better place now. I still miss you, terribly so. I remember hugging you while screaming, "You're so fluffy!"
You will always be the sweetest thing, Mom. I think I got that from you too!
Happy 60th! I love you... always!
