Since losing my mother three years ago on May 28th after her long battle with cancer, I have a whole new perspective on mother's day...it is not only joyous because I get to celebrate my days of being a mom, but it is also a day where I constantly think of my own mother and how much I miss her. In many ways I see my mother in me and in other ways I yearn to be more like her. She was a woman of faith; she did not doubt who she was or what her purpose was. She lived a life of service and love. Thank you mom for letting me know every day that I was loved and for sharing enough love to sustain me through the rest of my life until I can be with you again. To all of you amazing women...happy mother's day.
