Today was weird in the best way. It almost felt like the last year of bullshit never happened and then I would remember that Mom is gone.
I love my mom, but I don’t want to make the same kinds of mistakes she made, especially when it comes to opening up to people. Sometimes I worry that I’m headed that direction, until something or someone reminds me that I have made my life my own and have a really beautiful community surrounding me through the good times and the bad. I am grateful for that.
