Eating My Words.....

Well I was going through some of my mom's things and found a note that I sent her exactly one year ago today. How weird is that? Here is what I wrote to her on January 27, 2006...

Mom-

Just wanted you to know that I love you and I'm thinking of you. I really believe that you are going to be okay. I so enjoyed having you stay with me and I miss you already. You can come be my roomie anytime! I love you! Jessie


I remember writing the note. She had stayed with me for a week after getting out of the hospital. At that time we didn't know she had cancer and I really thought maybe her pain and illness was from stress. She thought she might be dying.... Oh how wrong I was. Little did I know when I wrote it that not even a month later we would find out it was cancer... Crazy looking back. She probably thought I was an idiot when she read that note. She knew she was really sick...

Hi Jessie,

Bittersweet memories. Your mom probably smiled when she read your note, finding some hope in your words, even if she "knew" she was really sick.

I seen you left a comment for Beffers. That was nice of you to do. You can relate to what she is going through and I am sure words from people who have already gone through losing a mother means so much to her now.

Hope you are having a wonderful day! :)
