30 Days of Truth: Day Fourteen: My Hero

Day 14 → A hero that has let you down. (letter)

Dear Mom,
I know it wasn't your choice to leave. I know that the icy road and the car accident took you from me. But I needed you. I still need you. Thirteen years later, I still need you. I know that you dreamed of the day that you would get to enjoy your grandchildren... they're here, but where are you? I tell them about you. They know you are in heaven. But how can I explain how wonderfully goofy you were? How can I let them now that my relationship with them isn't fully complete because you aren't here to complete the circle? I miss you Mom. Most days I block out the thought of you... because the thought of you not being here, still breaks my heart.

Day 15 → Something or someone you couldn’t live without, because you’ve tried living without it.

  1. Amen! Your mom was one of my favorite people in the world! She always made me feel so comfortable when I was with the Michels. I still remember her telling me the story of when she rode a roller coaster with her date, and her fake ponytail flew off! I think of her often, too. She was so special.
