STRENGTH

I M I S S M Y M O M..RIP

Mom. Mother. Mommy. Madre. Ma. It's one of the first words you say. It's the word you use when you're content, scared, or upset. I'm 15 years old. My mom died last year of a massive heart-attack. It is insane to think how much my life has changed. I lost a lot of things. My childhood, my innocence, some of my happiness, a piece of my heart. But along with that, I gained. I gained strength. You never know how strong you are until being strong is your only choice. Because a mother is one who can take the place of all others but whose place can never be taken.
