Twelve years ago today, my mom left this earth to go live with her Savior in heaven.
It was hard to say goodbye.
It still is.
But what remains are happy, joyful, loving memories. It was all good, always.
When I recall how I felt about her - how my world so often wonderfully revolved around her and how she was my best friend and my true north - sometimes I get scared because now I'm a mom and I'm wondering if my three children feel the same way about me.
Wow. It's quite the position to be The Mother.
May I do as well as she did. It would be an honor.
Happy Mother's Day, Mom.
I love you.
