It's my mom's birthday today. She would have been 63 years old. This is the first birthday since her tragic and sudden passing December 2021 from being hit by a car walking into work, (she was a nurse in a hospital.) She celebrated everything and made such a huge deal for the special occasions and wins of her loved ones. I always tried to do the same for her birthday as she deserved to be spoiled and showered with attention and love. This day is hitting me hard. I'm trying to do the things she loved doing, (walking, a work out, buying flowers, etc.) but I'm still in so much pain. I know this day and the intensity of my sorrow will pass, but I need to mark this somehow. I need people to know that this day is important. She was so so important, not just to me and my family, but her patients, colleagues and friends. Happy birthday Mom. I would do anything to hear your voice, your laugh and chat about your birthday plans. I can't believe you're not here.
