My aunt was shredding documents at her courthouse job when she came across emails my mom had sent over 11 years ago.
It said nothing interesting but for some reason it was just such a nice reminder to see this. To remember that she was alive and had a real life and that at one time I got to share it with her here on earth.
After nearly 11 years of her being gone it’s easy to forget what everyday life was like and to remember only the sickness or the important moments. But these everyday moments, emails at work, are something to treasure.
