When Mum passed away, David was there to guide me through the grieving, since he knew what it was like having experienced it himself. He always said, take your time. One day you'll realise that it doesn't hurt as much. But until then, take your time. Allow yourself to feel.
This was the second birthday we've celebrated without Mum. She would have turned 70 today. She was sweet and kind. Loving and patient. And wise. So so so wise.
I cannot adequately communicate how desperately I want to make her proud. I want to make you proud Mum!! I hope you see what I'm doing every now and then.
I love you Mum. Thank you for everything.
