Ground Hog Day


Dear Mom

I know you are always around, but I wanted you to know that we are all alright.  To be honest your passing has brought us, Noelle, Aimee and I, closer together.  I am stronger because of your early departure.  I am a great Mom because of you.  I love being a Mom.  Breton and Daphne make me so proud.  I talk about you with them.  I tell them how much fun we had together, how much we laughed together and they see your pictures around the house, their Baba.

I am more sympathetic and empathetic to others who have my shared experience, I jump in with both feet, I don't waste time, I value my time, experiences and the people in my life.  I credit you for this because I do not know if this would be me if I hadn't lost you.

You have seen my struggles but you have also seen so many highlights.  I wish I knew more about you beyond being my Mom.   I guess I just have to reach out more to those that knew you and ask...

I heard Rod Stewart's "Do you think I'm sexy?" today and I smiled.  Rod Stewart, Linoel Ritchie, Tina Turner, even Tom Petty's Free Fallin' always make me think of you, oh and George Michael.

We are all healthy and happy.

Miss you and remembering you today and always.

Love Robyn

PS Could you flicker the lights more often?

You are an amazing Mom, friend, sister and partner and your Mom is watching over you and proud of who you have become. I love hearing of your adventures together and hope to hear many more.

Your mom is part of so many of my high school memories. Funny enough I also always think of her and your Dad when I hear Rod Stewart :) You are an awesome Mom and a great friend. I'm sure your Mom is super proud. Hugs!!
