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.
