So many times I think to myself, what would my mom do? Or, I'll call my mom and get her advice. On a daily basis, when I have these moments it is sometimes so difficult to go about the day to day activities. But, I do. We all do. All of our family members are doing well and living their life to the fullest. Just exactly as my mother would want us to do.

I've mentioned it other times, but my mom lived her life to the fullest each and every day. She married a man she loved, had three daughters she cherished, and had a happy and fulfilling career as a teacher. In her retirement years, she and my father traveled and did things that made them happy.

And, there is the key to life. Be happy and filled with love. The best advice my mother could give us was through her example of living well. So, as I go throughout this day, I want to remember to live my life more like she did. Being happy.
