I was changing the sheets on my bed when I had a moment of deep, but bittersweet sadness and happiness. I just needed to get it out of my head and on paper. Forever missing my mom who passed in 2000. Thanks for having a look.

Journaling reads: Today, I felt my mom... fluff the clean sheets over me while I lay on her big bed. I am 4 or 5 years old and it is fun to be still while they sink down. I try to see how long it takes before they touch me. They smell so fresh and envelope me like a tent collapsing in slow motion. I’m giggling and happy, and as I lay there, awaiting the final depletion of air, she snatches the white sheet and snaps it up, full of air all over again.
Today, I felt that happiness of fluffing sheets over Danny, as he was 4 or 5. I hear him laughing and saying, “Do it again, Mommy!” and I oblige repeatedly. My heart sings with each squeal he lets out.
Today, I wondered if my Grandma did that for Mom when she was little. I bet she did. Now, I know why.
