Happy Birthday Mommy. We Miss You.

Today is my mom’s birthday.  She would have been seventy-six years old today.  My mom died three years ago, just after her seventy-third birthday, way too soon.

Mommy, I miss you.  I hope you are in a better place. 

I hope you are:

Playing slot machines and Pai Gow Poker,

Smoking lots of cigarettes,

Drinking your wine or your cosmos,

Wearing your beautiful diamond ring,

Carrying a Chanel bag,

Wearing your big black sunglasses,

Wearing a gorgeous suit from Escada and showing off those always perfect legs,

Doing the New York Times crossword puzzle in ink every day, without a dictionary,

Playing solitaire and Scrabble,

Making people laugh with your crazy sense of humor,

Breathing easily,

Laughing freely.

Mommy, I miss you every single day.  We all do.  Rest in peace beautiful.  We will always have you in our hearts and in our minds.
