It is so hard to believe that it has been 10 years since the worst thing and one of the best things have happened to me.
I'm thinking a lot about my mom tonight. It will be 10 years ago tomorrow morning that she went to live in Heaven. I have a lot of good memories of her, and now and then I have a dream where she and I are doing something together. Just ordinary things, like shopping or having lunch at our favorite Mexican restaurant, but when I wake up I feel at peace because I got to spend time with my mom. She was the most amazing woman, and she never even knew it. I loved her, and I miss her. But I will see her again some day, and that brings me joy.
It was 10 years ago next weekend that I met James in person for the first time. For almost 9 months we had only talked via computer, phone, and letters. I was there for a couple weeks and then didn't see him again for another year, when he moved down to South Carolina.
I know that James and Mama would have loved each other.
