If she could. She would.

As I take this next leap into my life. Putting myself fully out into the world and launching my gig with gusto I hear my mom's voice pop into my head. If she could. She would. Tell me that she's proud of me. My mom, that's what she would say. I know that she'll always be with me. Her voice, her words, her love will never disappear : even if she can't express it like she used to.

My mom has dementia. It started when she was 65. It's been a long, lonely, interesting journey and at the same time it's been so incredible. (more on that later) But for now I just wanted to remind myself of this moment, while I felt it. Makes me cry + smile at the same time.

I share this because I know that I'm not alone. I know some of you know exactly what I'm saying and how I feel. So lets make a deal, ok? Let's keep reminding each other that even though some of our loved ones are gone or have changed - they're still with us and we have each other. Thank you for being here. And thank you mom, for loving me.
