It will always be my mom's birthday.
I could feel it quickly approaching this year - the second June 24th without her.
A day that used to be full of happiness and celebration.
Birthdays aren't the same anymore.
Especially not this one.
Because instead of presents, special dinners, and an ice cream cake,
we are only left now with memories.
Memories of her. Memories of us. Memories of all the birthdays we got to share with her.
But tonight, she won't be blowing out the candles and making a wish.
But today will always be her birthday.
I love you, Mom.
Sending lots of birthday hugs and wishes up there today!
The same picture was used because it just captures her spunk perfectly.
