Today is a heartbreaking day. It is the end of a wonderful era...to me anyway. It is the end of my mother's visit to Pennsylvania; she flies back to California today. Sigh. It was much too short.
I should be grateful for such a visit. She stayed here for a month and a half, which is a lot longer than most people get to vacation. Plus, at least I get to see my mom, some folks parents are no longer living. Yes, I am blessed.
That does not mean I am not sad. Seeing as my mother lives cross country, I do not get many chances to see her. The last time she saw her grandchildren was 5 years ago. A lot of growing up happens in that time.
Even though I am a "grown-up", I still wish my mother was here. I miss her like crazy. I know my days (and hers) here on earth are limited, so does that make me a little selfish wishing she could be here with me?
Yes, but that doesn’t change my feelings. Anyone with a wonderful mother can attest to the fact that having your mom around is a blessing. So while she did a wonderful job raising me to be my own person and I am able to survive on my own, I still wish my mom was here…
