In Memory Of My Mother

Today she would have been 54 years old. Cynthia Rene Spears Davila. All of my friends still have both of their biological parents living. Most spend quite a bit of time with them. I wonder what I would have turned out like with that kind of support. Would I be more or less successful? Would I be more or less happy? Would I have a family of my own? Would she be proud, disappointed, detached, over involved in my life? These are the types of questions I have. I’m pretty sure I don’t care. I hope you all call, write or email your mother today. Tell her you love her, because tomorrow isn’t promised today. Even better, send your mother flowers. Moms like flowers.
