This is one of my favorite photos of my mom and dad. It was candid and spontaneous and we were on our way out the door for dinner.
It has been seven years since my mother passed away. I miss her every day. We recently moved back to our hometown and I keep looking for signs from my mom. I definitely know she's here with us. I can feel her helping my family adjust to all the changes in our lives. But, I'm always eager for a physical sign from her. Maybe I'm just missing those signs and need to be more open to seeing her in my life.
I miss you, mom. I love you so much and I'm so glad that I was lucky enough to have you as my mom. From your compassion to your strength to your love and your insightfulness, I can only hope to be half as special to my girls as you are to me.
