Last night mom died.
She was not a great woman...just an incredibly good woman. Her easy laugh, her quietly inspirational way of dealing with hardship, the way she inspired her children to believe they could do anything they wanted, slow to anger, but she still had a fiery spirit. She was a good friend to all, a good mother, a good daughter, a good wife...an incredibly good woman.
I know that many say these things when a parent passes, but there is not a day in my life that I did not know how lucky I am to have had her as a mother. I miss her so much already. I wonder if I ever will stop.
