My Mom xoxo
I was 17 when I found out my Mom had cancer. She had finally retired after years of working long hours as a manager and was looking forward to being at home. It seemed so unfair that she would be fighting cancer instead of enjoying the time together as a family. My Mom passed away 2 years later. I have felt a void in my life many times over the years. When I graduated college, when I got married and of course when I had children were times when I missed her the most.
I look back now and fully appreciate what a remarkable woman my mother was, particularly now that I have a son and daughter of my own. My discovery early on is that life can be short lived and it’s important to spend as much time as possible with my children and live a life filled with joy and rich with experiences.
