Missing Mom

Today is the worst day of the year for me. It's the day I lost my mom. It happened 5 years ago today. Sometimes it still doesn't seem real. It still hasn't quite sunk in that I'll never have another conversation with her on this earth. This picture is of us on my wedding day (obviously). I thought my mom was positively breath taking, and so beautiful. We both had our hair and makeup done professionally and she was not at all happy with her look. I still think she looked amazing, but she hated it and thought she looked like a wild woman. There's not a person on this planet that could be further from the truth. She was an amazing person, and I miss her so much. I'd give anything for her advice, her fettuccini, or to hear her say her little "Praise the Lord".

My Littlest Stinker

Here's a conversation between me and Benjamin when I picked him up from school today.
Me: "How was your day?"
Benjamin: "Good. I got a sticker and a candy".
Me: Surprised I said "You did"?
Benjamin: "Yes, (pause) but it's invisible".
You little stinker. You're only 4 years old. I'm afraid I'm gonna be in big trouble when you're older.
Conversation: Today, 2/2/09.
