I miss my mom a lot. I mean after she past away when i was in 3rd grade. It seems like a long time but sometimes I wish she were here with me,instead of my stepmother that my seems to like. And turns out they are far away cousins. When I think of my mom I begin crying,even though it has been a long time. The only memory left is her photo of her in my blue,blue room. I sometimes also feel left out , since all the kids in my class and my friends have there mom's and dad's with them. And I don't. I guess that is the way life goes ..
