I am sitting here at my desk thinking about you and of all the fun times that we have had. It didn’t matter what we did, we found a way to have fun doing it. A couple hour shopping trip downtown resulted in some laughs because of something that we saw or did. Looking at stuff just for “fun” was something that we quite often did.
We found that we could sit and talk
over a cup of coffee, and it was a great way to just spend time together. It
didn’t matter that we lived in the same house but going and sitting in a food
court and chatting was something that we both enjoyed doing. We would talk
about anything while watching people pass by. Of course, we would then see an
outfit on someone to be something that we wouldn’t wear, but we would talk about
it for a while just because it was something different.
We made tons of Christmas decorations
over the years as it was something that we both enjoyed doing. Our tree was
always full of different decorations, some that we bought on vacation and others
that we made. The memories that those decorations are what made our tree so
special over the years. We would decorate the tree together when I was younger
and laugh at some of the hand-made decorations because they would bring back
memories of making them. As I got older and was working, you would decorate the
tree, but then I would come home from work and sit, and we would again talk
about all the different hand-made decorations on the tree and around the house.
Growing up and knowing that you were always there for me helped a lot. On my wedding day the photographer asked you to give me a piece of advice and I remember what you said, “You fool” and then started to laugh. That picture is one that I look at and laugh at because I will always remember you saying that to me. It was special because you knew that I was happy and that is all that you wanted me to be.
It’s hard now seeing who you have become, but I know that the mom that I love is still there inside. She still laughs a bit and smiles a bit, but I just need to remember all the good times that we have had through my life. I hope that you still remember all the crazy things we did together because I know those are the things that I remember.
I remember all the good times that we shared.
