Thinking of Mama

Thursday made eight years since my mom left this world. Sunday would have been her 77th birthday, if she would have made it this far.

I miss her!
I miss talking to her.
I miss laughing with her.
I miss hearing her "constructive criticism."
I miss her smell.
I miss her hugs.
I miss her sense of humor.
I miss her sarcasm.
I miss her honesty.
I miss her unmovable faith.
I miss her mischievous eyes.
I miss the way she would arch her eyebrows at me.
I miss her cooking.
I miss traveling with her.
I miss pretending to sit on her lap.
I miss sleeping next to her.
I miss watching a movie with her.
I miss sharing a piece of pie with her.
I miss sharing my children with her.
I feel cheated of time.
I only hope that I make her proud when I see her again.
Until then...
