my mom left this morning and i am sad

sad but also extremely grateful that we had the chance to have her here for as long as we did

not just for me who had not seen my mom in two years but for Lily who didn’t really know or remember my mom

in this past month, they got to really spend time together, get to know each other and i hope that now that Lily is older, she got to build her own memories with my mom

some she will remember

it’s important

and yet so hard when we don’t see each other that often

something we have to work on

i always think of my mom as a very serious person

perhaps because of the fact that she is one of the hardest working people i know

but, seeing her with Lily made me remember her in a different light

she made clothes with Lily for Lily’s dolls the way she used to with me

she cooked with Lily the way she used to with me

she colored, played games, was silly…

sure she had less time when i was younger than she does now but it was good to see that the mom i knew is still in there and she is sillier than she is serious most of the time

i miss her already

happy ARTsy wednesday friends
