in rememberance

My mother died 5 years ago today. It is impossible to believe that I have survived without her for this long. When we got the call that we needed to come home as soon as possible, I knew that life as I knew it was over. People said it was a blessing she went so fast. Bullshit. I never got to say goodbye.

5 years equals:

60 months
300 weeks
1825 days
43,800 minutes
2,628,000 seconds

5 Christmases
10 birthdays (hers and mine)
5 Mother's days
5 Memorial weekends
5 Easters
5 Valentines Days

5 Parker fairs
5 springs
5 summers
5 Masters tournaments

a move to our first house
a pregnancy
and a beautiful legacy named Ellie

I miss her like I lost her yesterday.
