I love you, Mom


It's been three years since my Mom passed away. It happened on April 20, 2005 and we will always remember this day.

I spent today with my wonderful, amazing, loving step dad, Jorge, and my family. We shared stories, we bonded and we celebrated my Mom's life even if we were feeling some pain ourselves. I really miss her and I wish we had more time together for me to say all the things I never said... to do all the things I never did with her...

You live and you learn. So, for all of you out there, even if you don't have the best relationship with your Mom, always remember that she loves you and that she deserves a chance. Don't allow yourself to have regrets later... And even if you have the best Mom-Daughter relationship ever, take a moment to call her, hug her and/or tell her you love her just because you can. :-)

We will be attending a mass in honor of my Mom tomorrow at the church where I was married... If you can, say a little prayer for Myriam (AKA Mimi).

Note: The layout above was a page I did over a year ago with a photo of my Mom and Jorge on their wedding day.

Hugs to all and good night!!!
