“Letters to Mom”
One of her journals I found is titled “Letters to Mom”. It’s a collection of letters she wrote to her mother — my “Nana Anna” — starting about four months after her death.
Guess what. I don’t have just a muscle pull. I have that, but I also have three broken ribs. It seems so weird. Hurts like hell.
I’m tired and lonely, and I wish I could talk to you.
I really, truly need to lose weight. You know I’ll be 60 this year. Wouldn’t it be great if I could lose 60 lbs. by September?
I’m going to join Weight Watchers again, and, I guess, Curves.
I’m the only one who can change my life. I finally know that, and I’m ready to get started. If you’re there, maybe you can put in a good word for me.
I love you, Mom, and I miss you so much.
