It has been almost 5 years since I lost my mother and other family members to a horrific tragedy. They all meant the world to me, but the love of my mother is like no other.
She was my biggest cheerleader, my reality checker, my nurse, my therapist, my critic, my guide, my teacher, my helper, my friend, and NOW—my angel.
She helped shape me into the person that I am. I miss her dearly and there is not one day that goes by without the memory of her smile, love, and spirit, flashing through my mind.
The past four Mother’s Days have not been easy. The routine since my mother’s passing has been: go to mass, go to the cemetery, go to brunch or dinner and spend time with my mother-in-law.
