I miss you so much. I don’t think it’s possible to find the words to describe what life has been like since you left. Everything is different, and not in a good way. Everything is missing something and that something happens to be you.
When something exciting happens, I still reach for the phone to call you. When something bad happens and I’m ready to break down and cry in my car, I still reach for the phone to call you.
Every moment in life is significantly less important without you to share it with. With every new moment, I find myself hoping and wishing that you were here to share it with.
I hope I’m making you proud mommy. Everything I do, I do for you. Everything I do, I do in hopes that you are watching and are the proudest angel in all of heaven.
Even though our time got cut short, not for a second am I not thankful that I got to have you for as long as I did. I got to have the best mom in the world, regardless of how many years it was for. That is better than anyone else because they didn’t get to have you.
I become more and more like you every day. It’s my favorite thing when people tell me I remind them of you. There is nothing in this world that makes me prouder.
You have, and always will be my motivation for all of my goals and achievements. You are the reason I work so hard. You are the reason I do what I do. I keep going every day, even on the hard days, all because of you.
You were and will always be my favorite person. There isn’t a person in the world that could take your place. There isn’t a single person on earth that will ever compare to you. No matter how far apart we are right now, that will never change.
Thank you for everything. Thank you for showing me love, friendship, and compassion. Thank you for showing me what it truly means to love and be loved. Thank you for being my biggest fan. Thank you for never letting me down and always having my back whenever I needed you.
Thank you for being you. I am who I am today, because of you, because of your love, because of the luckiest chances that you got to be my mom.
I miss you, my angel.
I love you.
