A Talk With Mom

Hi Mom.  Happy Mother’s Day.  I miss you.  This is a pretty setting.  I’m glad you have a place away from the road.

I wish that I could talk to you.  There are so many things I would share with you!

Dave & Bruce seem to be doing ok.  Dave has found a woman that he really loves.  They’ve been together for several years now.  Bruce & Janette have carved out a nice life for themselves.  They have a nice home; I think you would like it.  It’s in a beautiful area.

Do you remember Denise from Rupeville?  Well, she is still my BFF.  She’s an amazing woman.  I’m lucky to know her.

Me?  I’m doing great Mom.  I finally quit smoking.  Believe it or not, I’m back in Texas!  I know, I never thought that would happen either.  I have a good life Mom.  I’ve got a job that I love and the greatest boss ever!  I just got a real pretty car.  Wish you could see it.  This fall I’m going to put a down payment on a house.  So it looks like I will end up retiring in Texas.  Can you believe that?!

I wish I could talk to you sometimes.  You were always easy to talk to.  I knew there would never be judgments; just understanding and compassion.  I miss that.

I wish I would have asked you to show me how to make your home-made biscuits.  Sometimes, I wish I could just turn to you and ask your opinion, or share something with you, or cook a meal together.

I know I’ve only been here a few times, but Texas is a long way away.  They keep the place up real nice here Mom.  The last time I was here, I noticed that your closest neighbor is also a lone woman.  I hope that the two of you get along.

I hope you’re happy, Mom.  You deserve it.  You put up with an awful lot with me and I know that.

I’ve got to go now Mom.   I know it probably doesn’t bother you, but I will talk to them about the dandelions.

I miss you and I love you Mom.  Happy Mother’s Day.
