Meant To Be

Today, Mom, you would have turned 79. I had always imagined celebrating your 95th birthday with you just like you did with your own mother.


But it wasn’t meant to be…


The last birthday we shared together was the two of us spending five hours in the urgent care because you were dying of lymphoma. Only nobody knew.


Because it wasn’t meant to be…
