Mom | Personal

This is a rough one to write.  My Mom passed away last week.  She was a force to be reckoned with.  She really was.  She was strong, independent and spunky.  She had a real zest, but you didn’t want to get on her bad side.  She was fun, full of life and laughed a lot.  She loved to travel and went all over the world, leaving footprints of a bold and spirited woman.  She looked forward to spending winters in Mexico with her husband and friends getting tanned and hanging on the beach. 

I thought nothing could bring her down, but this year cancer struck and she fought as hard as she could.  My Mom and I didn’t always see eye to eye, but she shaped much of the person I am today.  One of the biggest things she taught me was to always go for it!  Take a chance, don’t regret anything and just do it!  She believed in living with gusto and Mom I will keep doing that.  Love you and miss you.
