Off the topic shelf

Creative Writing here I come.

Oh I just can’t do it, so I am going to share a story about my mom, who I miss so much.

When I started college my mom would send me money for books and a little note that always said, “Keep all your books because one day you will have a great library”. The funny thing is that I did and I built it myself and she was just a proud of the fact that my shelves were level.

She would also send me $100 at the end of the semester and say it was just for me and just for fun. I worked full time and was taking 15 hours my last semester to finish.

I am glad she got to see me graduate from college, she felt disgusted with herself after she told me she wasn’t going to my high school graduation because it was not an accomplishment it was my job. She ended up going because a good friend talked her in to it. A few years later my sister dropped out of school and she could not apologize enough. She even wrote me a letter when she found out she had cancer for me to find after she was gone to say everything she couldn’t in person. That letter is my prize possession. I just wish I could have told her I loved her no matter what. I hope she knew how much.

Mommy and me on a water taxi in Milan Italy when I when and got

her off a cruise ship after having a stroke. Ten days before my gastric

bypass surgery and top weight.

 

 

Thank you to today’s inspiration
