She Was Wonderful

I had planned on going to sleep without posting anything tonight because the day was long and my fuse was short and right now all of my words taste bitter, but my friend Shelley published the following message to Facebook a moment ago and it sort of broke my heart but also made me smile so I felt the need to save it here.

Mother's Day weekend is hard. I managed to finally watch some videos Mom made me before she died. It took me nine years to get there. She was wonderful. I want her back.
