My mom was someone who always enjoyed the goofy things with me. She made everything magic and more fun, and we made traditions of these things just her and me – like going to the rubber ducky race in Clinton every July. It’s been almost two years since she has been gone and this was my first year at the race without her. I have missed her a lot, but what I miss most is having her around to do the fun stuff that only we would enjoy. I feel like these things just aren’t as special without her to share them with. I just hope that someday if I have kids I can make things as special for them as she did for me.
