10.19.2011 it’s hard to wrap my mind around it being 6 years without my mom. It’s been a year of transitions where I’ve found myself wishing I could talk to her more than ever. So, today I remember her by going to one of my favorite places and enjoying the “fall” weather here. I’m reminding myself how lucky I am to have grown in her love for 21 years and thanking her for all she gave me. My mother’s memory is always a reminder to be softer and kinder to everyone around you and to always take time to listen. She was the calm in the storm. I miss her and lll always love her but I hope she keeps painting the sky beautiful colors and how about a cubs win tonight?
