Often those of us who have mental illnesses only see shadows of ourselves in the mirror. We see the dark, the gray, the ugly and miss the color of our wings. Trust those who can see your full splendor, not the carnival mirror version you see of yourself.
In grief remembering you inspires me. Tomorrow will be tough, mom and again I will grieve alone..but ironically I truly feel this has made me stronger. I wish I'd have told you more often what a great mother you were. I can't thank God enough the life and time I had with you. I feel so blessed. Love and miss you always..
