It's been almost three weeks since Mama died. Every now and then I catch myself thinking I should go check on her or call her and tell her about a TV show she'd enjoy. When Daddy died fifteen years ago, I knew I could always go home cause Mama was there. Now, it's so strange knowing there's no one there. I still look out my bedroom window each morning to see if her bedroom light is on. I know it'll get better, but I still miss my mama.
