My mom lost her battle to ovarian cancer September 30, 2008. I am so proud of her courage and grace, not only in battling cancer, but in battling life. Like most, she experienced great joy and great sorrow while on this earth. She was one of the most giving and forgiving people I have ever encountered. I believe God placed her in the lives of those she touched throughout the years to serve as an example of love and kindness. And if ever there was a role she was made to fill, it was to be a "mom". In one of the last conversations I had with my mom, she said, "I'll think of you everyday, no matter what". I do the same mom, and I'm so very thankful for you!
Wishing all moms out there (especially my "new mom" daughter)
a very Happy Mother's Day!
God's blessings this day, and always.
