Life Ain't Complete Without You

God could not be everywhere and therefore he made mothers.

~Jewish Proverb


Dear Biboy and Tabebs,

I miss you. While you are only 45 minutes away from me vacationing with your grandmother, I feel an empty space in my heart. It was only Thursday when you left, but I already feel the drowning silence inside our house.

You wished for a vacation to meet your friends, one you don't always meet on regular days because of your parent's works. And now that I allowed you to go, it seems as if a hole is tearing me apart, I miss your laughters and shouts. I miss your kisses and hugs, and I miss reading bedtime stories to you. I miss cooking for you, I miss everything about you including you nasty acts.

I just want you to know that I may never be the perfect mom for you, but I swear I am doing everything I can to give you the best things life can offer you. When you were still babies, I have kept you softly and securely in my arms, never allowing a single insect to come near you. Now that you both can manage to be by yourselves with little attention, I can only watch from a distance making sure you are safe and out of harm's way.

I cry in times you are in pain, my heart aches when you are discouraged. My tears fall when you are aching, but my heart doubly rejoices in your happiness.
I miss you, and I pray you are well.

You are the only reason I am making my days more productive. You are the very reason of my existence. Life is never complete without you.

I am excited for Monday as we will see each other again. Today is mother's day and you ain't around to greet me, but nevertheless, I know, deep in my heart, my love for you never ceases, not by day, not by night. I will satisfy myself with hearing your voices on the phone.


Remember, I love you, more than you'll ever know.


Love always,
Mommy
