my mother’s passing

My mom left us on 12th July, on a stormy and wet morning. It will be a day I will remember for the rest of my life.

The journey in life with her, had been both bitter and sweet. She wasn’t the best role model, and I didn’t have a great childhood. But her style shaped me who I am today, independent, realist and foul mouthed to the core, and I like being me. And of course, I’m going to miss her greasy and unhealthy food.

Now, all that is left for me to do, is to explain to my child, where is her beloved grandma and why is she not here with us.

That is the most difficult and emotional draining thing for me to do now.
