for mom

There are no words to describe the sadness that I feel for the passing of my Mom.  But there are so many beautiful memories tucked in my heart.  She will live on in all of us, as she has taught us so much.  My mom was not just my mom, she was my friend.  

The past month or so when she was sick I did not do much writing.  It was a whirlwind of emotion, phone calls being made, time at the hospital, research and questions.  The time has gone by in a blur.  But between the sadness there were some really good moments when she was laughing and smiling.  Telling stories from the past and sharing gratitude for all who were there for her.  She was always looking out for everyone and did that right up until the end.    

I will always miss my mom but I know that no matter where I go she will be watching over me and sending little signs that she is around.
