Sleep well, my princess.

It just hit me, that this is the first Easter in my entire life (well, since I was old enough to walk), that I won’t have plastic eggs hidden around my house to find.

Every year, without fail, my mother would buy those little plastic openable easter eggs, fill them with small candies and sometimes money, and hide them around the house for me to find when I woke up on Easter morning. It was probably my favorite tradition of ours. As I got a little older, she got more creative, and, in addition to the candies, she would put I.O.U’s inside the eggs, that I could redeem anytime throughout the year. They would be for things like video game rentals, toys, trips to the cinema, my favorite fast foods (usually taco bell). All the treats she knew I loved. Even into my teenage years, she never ended the tradition, but instead it grew with me. The I.O.U’s would be for rides to the mall, books/magazines, CD’s, and still, video game rentals and taco bell (some things you just never outgrow). She did this every single year, until the year she died.

From then on, my friend (at the time) whom I was living with, kept the tradition alive. For three more Easters, I had eggs to find. Even this past Easter, after we suffered a big falling out and basically hated each other, and I was soon to move out, I still woke up on Easter, and, much to my surprise, had eggs to find. Because she knew just how important this tradition was.

This year, for the first time ever, there will be no eggs. And that thought makes me cry.

I miss you and love you, mom. More than anything in the whole entire world.

I hope you’re having a good day at work. I miss you terribly.

Sleep well, my princess.

I love you.
