My beautiful loving mom. ❤
...to this horrible thing called cancer. She had breast, brain, and bone cancer. I miss her like crazy, she was my best friend these past couple of years. I feel like a huge part of me died. I don't know what I'm going to do without her, she was always there for me and now, I don't have her, just memories that I wish I appreciated more at the moment. I honestly feel like I didn't appreciate her enough, I was rebellious in my teens and managed to make her life miserable at that time. I'm now 21 and in denial about all of this. I still can't believe she's gone and cry everyday. I'm usually a strong person with a strong personality but this...this is the worst thing that has happened to me in my entire life. She was the best mom in the world, she was my everything, she knew my secrets and I knew hers. I'm crying while writing this because it hurts to know that I can't talk to her after all this pain I feel right now meanwhile before, she was always listening and there by my side when I felt pain. I have no one I can have my really, really personal conversations with. I miss our random conversations, her childhood and teenage stories, her funny quotes, her personality, her style, her voice, her texts, her cooking, her sarcasm, her voicemails, her dances, her everything. She was a mom more than a woman. She was my mom, the best EVER. I love you and I miss you, mom.
