Dear Mum

I've never done anything like this before, so I apologise in advance if anyone reads this as it might be a bit soppy. It's hard to believe that 23 years have gone by since you passed away, nearly half my life time. I often wonder how different our lives would have been if you were still with us. Over the years I've noticed that the older I get the more I miss you, is that is normal? It saddens me that we never really got to spend time together as adults. Never did the normal mother daughter things, catching a movie, going to an art exhibition or a craft show, browsing antique shops, shopping for fabric. Even just spending time together having a chat and enjoying each others company. I also lament that you never meet your grandchildren or your great nieces and nephews. I know how important your family was to you. I miss your laugh, your warm and generous heart and most of all your loving embrace.
