I’m so proud to be my mother’s daughter! She was one of a kind, ever conscientious and always protecting all of us. She was a seatbelt enthusiast, a nighttime curtain puller, and an avid door locker. So when someone tells me I’m just like her, I am reminded how fortunate I am! Remembering Mom today on this 8th Mother’s Day without her. Hug your mom if she’s still here – tomorrow holds no guarantees!
My Mother's Daughter at the Dames Ferry dump station at the top of the hill two and a half days worth of our waste sliding down a three inch hose from the belly of our camper into the waste tank you stepped to the back to check the spare tire I looked out over the lake at the bottom of the hill and panicked thinking you, too, might slide ran to the truck set the emergency brake announcing in a high pitch I SET THE EMERGENCY BRAKE! for all to hear to let everyone know you were safe not about to get flattened and drenched in pee sliding all the way down to the lake you walked up the hill wiping your hands with a glove chuckling your secret knowing smile satisfied with yourself I searched your face you raised your eyebrows in answer I love you you said kissing my cheek and there's nothing wrong with this but you are your mother's daughter
