My life in dreams

I Miss You.

on June 26, 2013

I know it has been a while. I am sorry! It has been a difficult month of June.

I would like to write about someone today, someone who I miss dearly.

So here it goes:

This is one is for you, to you …I miss you!

I miss our long talks about nothing and about Everything.

I miss your voice on the phone right after work, before work and at the most inappropriate times.

I miss your daily text each morning telling me how much you love me and how much you think about me.

I miss you telling me how much you worry about me and how I am like one of your own.

I miss sending you your monthly supply of Ensure, even though we both knew you were too young to be drinking that stuff.

I miss you visiting me and our talks about your cooking. What you made that day. How you treated you neighbors and your roommate to North Eastern delicacies.

I miss your daily gossip about something or someone and then having you change your mind about that person.

I won’t forget your smile, generosity and your wild spirit. Our arguments were classic but always ended on a happy note.

I am happy that I made you feel comfortable in speaking to me about anything you wanted. I know I never made you feel judged by your decisions and your actions. I know you never judged me.

We got along so well and we simply “got” each other. I was so lucky to have you in my life. I miss you.

Thank you for always being there for me in the good times and the not so great times. For being my listening ear and for taking my side;  even when I did not deserve it.

But, that is just how you were. You took charge and control of everything, even when you were not in charge. Even if at times we did not agree, you were going to live your way.

I want to thank you for watching Carrott, while Mike and I vacationed. I loved the room you booked for us. It is as if you were giving us a gift before your eternal good-bye.

I will never forget that day when Mike and I were so close to your home and we got the dreadful call. We arrived at your home to find all of your neighbors that you had spoken about so in-depth with me, way too many times. They each knew my name. They knew exactly who I was. I had never met them before and knew exactly who they were. They hugged me and tried to console me and I tried to do the same. It felt surreal.

But, thank you for speaking so highly of me. I am honored to have helped you and been there for you, just like you were there for me.

Thank you for coming to my wedding and having a blast. I was honored we were the only wedding you got to attend, out of all of your children.

Thank you for being my mother when I needed one.

Thank you for being my best friend.

Thank you for being the best mother-in-law a woman could ever have.

Thank you for keeping every piece of clothing or card I gave you.

I love you and I think about you every day!

I will miss you every day!

Love Always,

Your Daughter (in-law).
