I've always been a wimp when I get sick. I don't know why, but when I feel horrible, I'm a whiner, a moaner. I just hate getting sick. But perhaps the worst thing of being really sick is not having mom to run to.
I don't know that I would run to mom right now. But knowing that I can't makes me feel all the more worse. Even as an adult just a few words from mom on what I was feeling, the over protective "you should do this, or you should do that" was met with "i'm fine" from me, but deep down I loved the attention and would try those remedies.
My mom has been gone now a little over two years. And while I miss her every day. It's days like today, that I truly miss her. I wish I could just stop by the house, have her offer me some advice, or just be motherly. Because sometimes the best medicine is mom.
I miss you mom.
