A Mother's Love

A tribute to My Mom and Moms everywhere

My First Friend

Although it seems like it just happened, my mom and first best friend passed away 24 years ago. There isn't a day that goes by that we don't have a conversation. Some days are better than others, but it's these celebratory days and being a mom that keep it so fresh for me.

I initially wrote this piece 6 months after she passed and have just adjusted it. Being a mother is a role that is multi-faceted and fluid. No day is like the one before. This is my tribute to you all that still have your mother's in your lives.

Cherish the moments and continue to create memories.

At the end of it all she is still a human with flaws that has a special place for you.

Happy Mother's Day!
