Treebywater Posted September 15, 2005 Share Posted September 15, 2005 I was in the basement today and passed by an open tote with some of my old college textbooks (that have been there too long). I felt like reminiscing, so I peeked in the box and this book called Mama Drama was there. I didn't think much of it at first, but then I got curious. I picked it up, and judging from the inscription on the inside it looks like Mom must have sent it to me my Freshman Year of college. And in it she wrote, Val, An instruction book--Not that you need it. After all, I'm so easy to get along with!!! I love you very much. Mom The thing makes me happy and sad. I lugged it upstairs. I loved seeing the words, "I love you very much. Mom" in her handwriting, but I wish she was here to be easy to get along with. I lost my Mom JUST as I was starting to interact with her as adult to adult. JUST when I was out of the stage of, "What does Mom know?" and in the stage of, "I better ask Mom." I don't know... It's like this symbol of what I wish I had now, and what I did have, and what I took for granted, and what I loved about my Mom. It might just become a talisman of sorts. Anyway. I just thought I'd share. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
