Happy birthday to my angel, my sweet mom. Life is hard without you, and I know it always will be. Your loss is a wound that will never fully heal. Now that I’m a mom myself, I find myself needing my own mom more than ever, and I hate that you aren’t here. But I know you’re watching over me, and I feel your presence with me when I need you the most. Je t’aime, maman. Today will always just be one of “those days”- inevitable and difficult and one that I can’t escape. I just can’t wait to be reunited some sweet day.
