Mama it’s hard to believe that a whole year has passed since I had to say my final goodbye to you. Things just aren’t the same and I know that they won’t ever be again. This past Christmas felt like it was just forced, no genuine happiness for me. I will miss being able to prepare dinner for you on holidays and birthdays. Having you come and sit at the table and fuss about how long it was taking me to get done cooking. It would aggravate me a little at that time, but what I wouldn’t give to have just one more day with you like that. Mama I feel like you were all that I had left in this world and all I do now is work to keep my mind off of losing you. I wish I had known sooner that you were sick so that I could have been able to take care of you longer than I was able to, but I guess God knew best. I love you sooo much mama, and will forever keep your memory alive until God reunites us.
