365 Days

Dear Mom,

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...
