Today would have been my mom's 94th birthday. My heart aches because I miss her so much. She passed away two months ago on January 8. I think of all her past birthdays, and how she just loved being with her family. She was happy with just cake and ice cream. We didn't have to have a big celebration, just being together was enough. She was the heart of our family. I cry to her every day just like I am again a child. I will always be her child, and she will always be in my memory as a wonderful, caring mother who loved me no matter what. For the times I wasn't the best daughter, mom, I am sorry. For the times I lost patience with you, I am sorry. For all the times I was less than thoughtful towards you, I am sorry. Please know that I have always loved you, even though I very rarely told you so. Your love for me was unconditional. I know that. My love for you will be for all eternity, so until we meet again please know that you are forever in my heart and soul. May your heavenly birthday be the best ever!
