This is the month:

The month I lost my sweet mom.

The month I got my last advice from her.

The month I apologized to her for any stress I had caused [because we know there was a lot of that]

The month I thanked her for being the greatest mother I could have asked for.

The month I reminisced with her about when we'd go to the movies and order Mr. Pibb.

The month I put her coat on for her for the last time.

The month she walked out the door for the last time.

The month I hugged her for the last time.

The month I kissed her on the forehead for the last time.

The month I heard her say, "I love you!" for the last time.

The month I said goodbye.

This is the month:

The month I will donate my hair in honor of her.

The month I will start to write one of my books.

The month I will begin to be as strong as she was.

You are truly inspiring. You are a great person. Many people allow sorrow to turn them bitter, you just ran in the opposite direction. I know your mama is proud of you. Stay strong, girl.

XO, Charlene Zale
