A year ago today … my beloved mom died suddenly.
It’s all been … a lot. Sometimes life feels in free fall. Other times oddly centered and calm.
A lot of change. Not all bad, nor unexpected. But I miss her.
That kind of brilliant, deep-feeling, vibrant, funny-as-hell force of nature, so unquestionably in your corner? You might know someone like that once in a lifetime, let alone be raised by one.
I’m deeply sad. Every day. But intensely grateful for who she was … and who I am as result.
And hopeful. Always hopeful.
And at peace.
