Damn it. Sobbing in the gym. Again. Damn. Oh SF Ali, my mom and dad are still here. But I lost the two most influential women in my life, my aunt and my grandmother. I squarely wouldn’t be where I’m at today without them. Don’t get me wrong, I love my mom. I’d happily exchange my life for hers. However, her sister and her mother were quintessential in shaping my future. God I hate holidays. And now I’m not making sense as I cry, ride, and type. Thankfully this place is empty.
Hon, I don’t think you need to say sorry to your mom. She knows. They know. They gave us the best they could. We gave the best we could in return. At the end of the day, it’s love that’s the glue. She’s always with you.
May all mothers of all kinds and walks of life, have an amazing day.
Love you Ali. I need to go compose myself. I’m a mess. But I thank you for helping me sort through the very real emotions that are forever present.
