day 12 of the challenge– What do you miss? (a person, a thing, a place, a time of your life…)
i miss the times when i was able to see my family everyday. it’s something i took for granted until i couldn’t do it any longer. i miss weekend morning coffee with my mom in our pajamas & dad making french toast. i miss them being by my side. i miss being able to pop in anytime i want. i miss the warmth of their arms when i’ve had a bad day. & today most of all – i miss my mom. it’s hard having a daughter now & not being able to have her see her grandma anytime she wants (and vice versa) – it’s hard not being able to share all her madisons firsts with my family. i realize now that i am a mom myself just how she felt all those years & i wish we could be together today. my mother is amazing. she is the only reason I can be a good mom for madison. she taught me everything i could have needed to know about raising a daughter & mostly that includes: be selfless, love more & pray harder. all of which i try to do everyday for this baby girl. without her i wouldn’t be half the person i am today let alone half the mother i am still trying to become. thank you for everything mom & happy mothers day!
