Today would be my mom’s 60th birthday. And let me tell you, it would have been a PARTY! Mom wasn’t just my mom, she was everyone’s mom. My friends could talk to my mom about things going on in their lives that they couldn’t talk to other people about. She was honest and non-judgemental. And she understood the things we were going through as teenagers.
Mom passed away from cancer 14 years ago this summer, when I was 19. We were just beginning our adulthood friendship, which I know would have been amazing. I didn’t have a chance to really get to know her as a person, outside being my mom. But one thing I did know about Bonnie, was that she loved caesars!
So cheers to you today mom, I love you and I miss you everday.
