To write here is a finality I struggle to face. I choose to remember her arms around me as a child, bouncing me ever so gently on her knee as she lightly sang a Czech lullaby. Remember her watching me garden and telling me everything I'm doing wrong and where I should plant the flowers. Demanding I go inside because my face was becoming red and I needed to cool before the migraine hit. So many memories that will never be forgotten.

I was lucky enough to have a day with mama to say my goodbyes. I can only hope she heard me and how much I love her.
