Mom leaves in a few hours … It never gets easier. Ever. Like ever ever.
We stayed up late talking and talking. I will miss her presence in my home. The way my kiddos faces light up when they see her. The way the entire neighborhood lights up when they see her. The way her very existence is soothing and peace to my spirit.
This time we made more memories and did more stuff than ever before! We were talking about all the fun times we have had the past 10 days. It has been beautiful and such a blast!! My mom, brother and I got to spend a lot of time together sans kiddos which hasn’t happened in a long time!
It will be 2.5 months until I see her again in October.
I know how fortunate I am to have this relationship and I don’t take it for granted for one minute.
Even though I am a grown woman, I still cry when my mom leaves us. I have happy memories but the hours after she leaves there is a quiet and sadness. And that is ok. I have embraced the sadness that comes. I feel it fully, cry my face off and then let it go and remember the happy times. It always reminds me of a few of my favorite quotes:
Love you Mom!!! We will miss you!
