Missing Mom

As I write this, I sit watching my mom's yahrzeit candle burns in the window.  I went to shul and said Kaddish but it does not feel like enough.  Last year we spent lots of time remembering and sharing stories the sisters together.  This year, we all marked the day individually. 

I miss her so much.  I still pick up the phone to call her.  Froggy grows to look more and more like her each year.
This is the last picture I have of Froggy with my mom.  I try to remember her like rather than the last several weeks of her life.  The same time this picture was taken, my mom made a Build-A-Bear hippo Sophie with a soundbox for Froggy.  Froggy hugs Sophie and listens to Sovta tell her how much she loves her. 

We love you Sovta

    It's uncanny how much of you I can see in her face. She was a lovely woman on the outside, and from everything you've said, on the inside.
