It has been one year tonight since I said goodbye to you and that is hard to believe.
I wasn't planning on writing this post as I haven't been here in a long time. 10 months?
Don't get me wrong; I have come here many, many times to write.
I am a different girl today than the one you knew. Not a stranger per say; you would still recognize me. I think you would like this person.
The anxiety you agonized over and couldn't fix is gone. I no longer live by fear.
I won't pretend that you didn't see or weren't a part of all of that.
It was hard Mama.
But I did it.
I love you. I miss you. I think of you every day.
I know more than anything else at this point in my life that I had the greatest mother and I am SO lucky to be able to say that.
I will always be grateful and I will always choose joy.
P.S. Here are a few pics since we said goodbye...
