Today marks the 30th year since my Mother went home. Thirty years. That is hard to grasp. I was in my early twenties when she passed away. One would think I've had plenty of time to assimilate the fact that she has been gone longer than I had her. And yet, it is like a puzzle piece that doesn't fit. There are days that the memories are so hazy, and others that are sweetly crystal clear.
Thirty years later...I still miss you, Mom.
