Happy Birthday, Mom in heaven.
This day especially, today. I ache for you. It’s your birthday and you’re not here.
My wish for today is that I can sit beside you one more time. I can hear your voice, one more time. I wish I can see you in your house-dress cooking, one more time.
I’m so happy I got to be your daughter. I’m so happy we spent many days listening to my music as you cooked or sewed or just watched me play on our living room floor. I’m so happy you took me in as one of your own. You showed me unconditional love and I’m grateful for that because as a mother of 3, my children know that I love them, unconditionally.
Memories of us eating the box of muffins I bought you when I first got paid from my first job at Burger Express, where unbeknownst to me, my future husband was flipping burgers at the time.
Memories of you meeting my future husband and thinking he was Filipino, but he wasn’t. You just didn’t have your glasses on and he’s brown.
Memories of you yelling out to me to help you find your glasses, which of course was on your head!
Memories of you and me watching The Love Boat and The Sound of Music. So many beautiful memories!
My only regret is that you never met your grandchildren. You would love them so much and would be very proud that they are respectful, loving, beautiful and tall, LOL.
Wishing you could see them and spoil them, the way you spoiled me.
I love you so much and missing you like crazy.
Please visit me in my dreams, you don’t do that anymore, and I don’t know why.
Loving you always, xoxo
