Ode to Aunt Em

spaghetti.jpgDear Aunt Em,

Today is your birthday, exactly one half a year away from my own suggesting that we are opposite in nature. I remember you most for your undaunting, stubborn spirit that kept you moving forward no matter what obstacles appeared in your path…..a true taurus if ever there was one.

I miss your presence in my life and I pray that you are in a better place. Your life was a quiet one with few around to witness your struggle. You died as you lived….quietly, solitary, and without struggle. You deserved more.

However, you were always quick to express your love for me with a smile, a hug, and offers of food.

Happy Birthday, Aunt Em. I miss you.
