Just so you know, my mother was ONLY the best mother a person could have!
Sadly, I don’t have a lot of photographs of the two of us. Most of all our things got lost when she died and I went to live with my grandmother. As for mementos, I only had one ring which I gave to my daughter when she turned 15. That made her very happy!
However, I have all the memories. And I have my daughter, who has the same determination and strength my mother had. And that’s more than enough! :)
