As I was doing my bus paperwork this morning I realized it was one year ago today I last saw my mom alive.
I told her about Paul leaving, and she was adamant that “Some other woman’s got her claws into him!” How right she was.
She also told me not to worry about money and assured me she’d take care of us. She most definitely did that, though not at all how I would ever have anticipated.
Rest in Peace Mom, I really do miss you, strange as it sounds.
