I walked the dog through the park today and thought of Maggie. That's nothing new. I think of her all the time. But this time it was as though she was right there with me, laughing at the dog's antics and charming all the passers by. That's what she did. Laughed and charmed.
I was thinking about all the seemingly unremarkable moments we shared. They certainly don't seem unremarkable now. Those are the things I remember. Laughingly trying to get work done while she nagged me with her talker or listening to Maggie's music in the car with the volume pumped up and her laughing so hard she could hardly breathe. These were just Maggie and mom moments.
Don't get me wrong, she had Dad and Maggie moments and brothers only moments, but I wasn't part of those. I just miss my remarkably unremarkable time with her.
