Today I am to running some errands for my mom. If you know my mom, she rarely has me run errands. She also never get’s mad at me if she asks me to one thing amd I forget. The only reason I’m running errands for her today, is because she’s not here to do it herself! Otherwise, I’d be out of a job.
As I to pick up medications, go to the bank, etc, I am brought back to these old neighbourhoods. Places we used to frequent, places close to home, in our North West apartments…places we with Stephen. I think about him everyday, but thought about him a lot today.
Remember when we walked up that hill, or missed Wheel-Trans at that door or I took the last dime from my mom because we waited for hours and I wanted gum. He’d laugh at me and watch as I would run around, talk and try to entertain myself when we went to the doctor’s or walked to pick up his meds.
He is in my thoughts always, probably more than people know. My friends who didn’t know him, feel like they did, because I still talk about him.
If you’re thinking about people, let them know. If you love them, tell them. If you miss them, do something you used to do to remember them.
