Moms are vital in every girls life. I didn’t have the privilege of growing up with that figure in my life. Tragically she was taken from me at 5 months old.

I know I say taken as if I’m still angry. Well I am. Angry, hurt, sad, and a whole mess of other emotions that come with never knowing the beautiful soul I hear stories of all the time.

Today is a shitty day. Mother’s Day I celebrate with my dad and sister, my grandma and aunts, but I will never be able to celebrate with my mother.

Some years are better than others, this year at this time, seeing all the pictures of my family and their moms I’m just not in a good head space. I feel alone and for all intents and purposes motherless.
