For Bea on Mother's Day
Today is Mother's Day and it is a day when I miss my mother with such intensity. She died in 2007 and even though the sadness lessens with time, Mother's Day continues to be a difficult day. My mother loved being acknowledged with a mushy card and a phone call. She never wanted gifts, and would be clear about that if I ever did buy her something. Our daughter took us out for breakfast today - a yearly tradition that is so sweet. And as some of you know, she is due to have her first child in July. The cycle of life is profoundly moving to me. For today, I just want to acknowledge my mother, Beatrice, whom I loved. I love you Mom, and miss you like crazy.
