There were never any "good old days" — they are today, they are tomorrow
13 years later and it still hurts

Today would have been my mother's 67th birthday.

A message to my female friends, and for my male friends to pass along to the female people they love:

Go. Get. The. Damn. Mammogram.

And guys? When you're passing that message along, pay attention to your man-boobs, too. Just because it's called breast cancer doesn't mean you can't get it.

Fuck cancer, anyway.

*hugs and apologies for the PSA*

I couldn't have said it any better myself. I lost my mother to breast cancer almost three years ago.

I have something odd to share. I didn't know that yesterday was her birthday, but as I was staring out the window watching Niko play in the snow yesterday morning, I unexpectedly found myself thinking about her and missing her even more than I usually do. I think of her all the time, really, but often it's a passing thought, like "I wish I could tell her about that," or "She would have thought this was hilarious." Yesterday I simply stood there and missed her.

I would have posted on Tuesday but have been offline most of the week. Message heard. And I raise a toast to her.
