When I lost my mom a few years ago, I lost so much. It was more than just losing a mom. It was losing my best friend, my cheerleader, and my biggest fan all in one.
Nobody in this world could take her place. Not even close.
1. I miss her hugs.
I miss the way being in my mom’s arms could take away the pain of whatever I was going though. I miss the way she’d hug me when I was upset and not let go until she knew I was ready.
2. I miss her guidance.
My mom always knew what to say. No matter the situation, no matter what I was going through, she knew how to make it better.
3. I miss her comfort.
Having my mom be a phone call away for whatever I needed was a luxury that I took for granted. Having her to lie with in bed when I needed a break from life was a privilege that I took too lightly.
4. I miss her voice.
Voicemails just don’t do justice. I would do anything to hear her call my name again.
5. I miss the names she had for me.
She would always come up with a new cute nickname for me, no matter how old I got.
6. I miss her smell.
The smell of my mom was home. I still recognize it. One of my biggest fears is the thought that I could forget it.
7. I miss her friendship.
Not a person in this world could and will ever compare to my mom. She was the best friend that I will ever have. She was my secret keeper and my favorite person to gossip with. She was everything a friend should be, plus more.
And I will continue to miss her every day.
