I thought I would be morose today. It’s my mom’s birthday. She would have been 54 years old. And she has been gone for almost seventeen years.
My mother-in-law is also gone as of nine years ago. And her birthday was three days ago. And yesterday was Mother’s Day.
Yeah, mid-May has been a tough time time of year for me.
But today I woke up and felt… good. For the first time in a long time. I am considering it a birthday gift from my Mama. Even though it’s her birthday, she is sending me a gift.
