I am really not sure why, but I have really been missing my mom this week. If you are new to my blog, my mom passed away last June from cancer. I know she is not in pain anymore, and I am so thankful for that! It doesn’t change the fact though that I lost one of my best friends. I miss her terribly! She was my go-to person for advice, to share my life and things going on, and just to have awesome conversations. I miss that so much. She loved people–all ages and walks of life, was so incredibly smart, and didn’t let anything stop her. She was a joy to be around and people just loved her.
I took this photo of her one day before she got really sick, about 2 1/2 years ago. She was “tickled” at something I said, and I loved seeing her laugh! I have posted it before, but it’s my favorite! It’s how I want to remember her.
Life is fleeting and we have no idea what’s in store for us. I realize it is hard to understand if you’ve never experienced anything like this. All I will tell you is don’t let yourself get caught up in trivial stuff. Stay away from all the junk on TV and the internet that isn’t important or clouds your vision of your purpose here. Don’t let yourself get caught up in the narcissism of the times. Take the time to slow down, be with people you love and do something kind for someone, just because!
Take the time out today to tell someone you love them and give them a big hug!
