{June 1, 2017}   Missing you

Why can’t I have multiple posts in a day? I don’t know, its my blog!

June 1st is bittersweet. I have a grandson who turned four and today is also the anniversary of my mom’s passing. 

My mom, wow. I’ve told you about her a few times, I’m ok with one more. 

She was a force to be reckoned with. Smart, funny, silly on occassion, kind, caring, considerate, stubborn, opinionated, vocal, affectionate, encouraging, multilingual, cultured, well traveled. 

She would take on almost any challenge, escslators were a stumbling block. She was one of the smartest people I knew and she would laugh that she couldn’t add any variation of 8 and 5!

She was there to offer advice if needed, sometimes if not, like any good mom. She tried to save us from making mistakes that she made but there to help when we did. 

She would kiss the boo-boos when we fell, to this day, I miss that. Hey, I still get my dad to kiss my boo-boos, especially when I bump my keppe, that’s your head for those of you not in the know. 

There are things I see in myself and my sister when we interact with her girls, my grandkids, extended family. She would wake us by gently touching our faces and ask “did you take a soft pill today?” 

Did I ever tell you her let names for us? They were goofy, but we went with it. She would call GES kitty litter, I asked what does that make me, cat litter?! No rhyme or reason and we just went with it. 

I’ll leave you with this funny fact. When we were kids and driving with mom, we needed something to call bad drivers on the road. What did we come up with? Pizza head!

I miss you mommy and I love you.
