3 Years

3 years ago my world was completely turned upside down. 3 years ago I lost the most important woman in my life. 

3 years ago my beautiful Mom, Kathy, lost her brave battle with cancer.


There are no words that can accurately describe how much I miss her. 

I miss her sarcastic sense of humor

I miss the way she made everyone feel like they were special

I miss picking up the phone and hearing her voice

I miss her fierce love for her family

I miss how she could make me feel better when I was sad

My Mom and I always had a special relationship, I could tell her anything and she was always honest in her opinion. She never sugarcoated things and I needed that. I inherited her love of cooking/baking, animals, old movies/music and Disneyland. She was the best Mom that anyone could ever hope for and I am so lucky that she was mine.

She was taken from us far too soon and there is not a day that goes by that I don't think of her. I am sad that she is missing out on the lives of her family. She doesn't get to see her grandchildren grow up and she doesn't get to grow old with my Dad. 

I miss you, Mom and I hope that we all are making your proud. Thank you for always teaching to be the best person that I can be. I love you always!
