I have been a blog slacker. I am committing to updating my blog more often. i enjoy seeing what is going on in the lives of my family and friends. I just wanted to take a minute to give a shout out to my mom. She had a tough week. It was 1 year ago on April 22 that she lost Ed. She loves him so much and continues to miss him. I hope that as time goes on she can continue to enjoy the memories of Ed and the pain gets to be a little less all the time. I heard once that the pain does not go away, you just get used to it. I am sure that is the case for my mom. I saw a different woman this past year and yet the same. She is every bit the strong woman that I have seen over and over in my life. Yet, this time she did not want to reinvent herself and so that has been a struggle. Mom, you are amazing. I know you don't intend to live by example sometimes, but thank you for teaching me, my sisters and daughters how to live and live well.
I love you!
