This morning, I woke up skipping beats. I know I feel sad, and I feel like crying. Perhaps because I know it is Mother's Day and the past few days I've been really really missing my Mom.
My niece and I were sitting on the couch when all of a sudden there's this unsatiated pang that I wanted to see Mom. Of course, my niece was taken aback since we were having fun, horsing around, and bam! I suddenly said, "I miss Mom!" She stopped, with gaped jaw, and from the look in her eyes there was confusion. "Why?" She managed to ask. "I don't know. Maybe because I haven't seen her for years..." The look of confusion was replaced by a knowing sadness that I avoided to see. That I looked away for a while to hold back tears. God, I miss Mom.
