lately my thoughts have been firmly rooted on my mom. her birthday was last week, and today marks the nine year anniversary of her death. i always think back to the last night that i had with her. i cant hear “Sweet Child of Mine” without being transported back to her hospice room. that night, i was sitting in a chair, headphones in my ears, singing aloud to her in her comatose state. my elbows were leaning on the bed next to her legs. i gently sang song after song to her; ones she loved, and ones that reminded me of her. eventually, i went home to get some sleep, planning to be back again in the morning - like i had been doing. i awoke to my cell phone ringing. it was the hospice calling. i couldn’t answer, but i knew what it meant.
the last nine years of my life have been so different without having her here. i still have an instant urge to call her to share good moments and bad moments, thoughts, fears, and my struggles. she was such an inspiration to me, loved by everyone who met her, and was a mother to all of my friends. the world seriously lost someone truly special that day. but knowing that her and my dad are back together again always puts a smile on my face.
