Today is that day. I still think about her on a daily basis, but as of today, it's been 18 years since my mother passed.
It really is true that time is a healer though. My mom was such a fun person & I was usually right under her heels as much as possible. Fortunately, I only have good memories of her. It still sucks sometimes though that I cant get her opinions about some things, but that's just part of life. Luckily, I have an awesome grandmother who is like a mother to me.
Tulips were one of her favorite flowers & it's so refreshing to walk out my front door this time of year & see my own tulips.
Her favorite drink was Coca-Cola... so I raise my glass of Coke to her today :)
