Today is Mother’s Day. Exactly three years ago on this date mom lost her battle with cancer. It sucks. Seriously. There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t wish she were here. Of course it’s because I miss her but it’s also because she had so much more life to live. She taught me to strut to my own beat…she was the embodiment of that. Be unique, be fun, be brave….be YOU and she was all of that in spades. Despite my many shortcomings and flaws I always knew that my mom would still love and accept me. As memories of the past flood in today I’m reminded of the void she left in my life and my heart.
