Mom lives in Too Far Away from Texas, Montana. She's lived away from Texas since I was a sophomore in college which was 20+ years ago. My sweet little mom also has Lupus and it's slowly robbing her of her good days. This is a hint of what my "L" post will be about.
Mom and I are super close. She was a very young (17) mom when I was born. You can say that we both grew up together in many ways. We also have had our huge fights that I also contribute to our closeness. With moms health being in such a poor shape, and with age, I appreciate my parents and every moment with them more than anything.
I know it sounds like excuses but with mom being so far and with my job and with life in general- it's very hard and painful only seeing her once a year.
I visited her last year and the year before that she came to Dallas for 3 weeks to be with me for my wedding. This year , I have a wedding to attend (my cousin Brad) and the wedding is in Idaho. Montana is not too far so I'm trying to figure out to swing both visits. Of course Mom is majn priority.
I love her so much and worry about her daily. Here's Mom:
Call your Mom! Tell her you love her. You only have one true Mom.
Happy Easter weekend yall!
