I’m a few days late in posting this video package for my mom’s birthday that @brianfyeah and I put together (...okay, fine, I napped at his feet while “we” worked on it).
I’m obviously in most clips because mom’s life clearly revolves around me (she likes it that way). But there’s one clip I’m not in and it moved my mom to tears when she saw it was included. My mom tried not to show our family what a hard birthday it was for her since it was the first one she’s celebrating without her beloved Grandma, but I saw right through her. Mom even put extra effort into making herself the perfect cake because she wanted to make Grandma (the best cook) proud, but I know she knows that Grandma was always proud. I reminded mom that Grandma Hedy was celebrating with us while up in heaven.
Sometimes with this pandemic the passage of time seems unmeasurable. It’s so hard to believe it’s already been over a half a year since we lost our amazing, strong, inspirational matriarch.
