So I haven’t posted too often as of late because my lovely, darling, wonderful Mother experienced a life threatening illness. She is on the road to recovery, but it’s clear that it is going to be a long and difficult road with lots of twists and turns.
We’re not 100% sure how her life will be after this, but she is alive and it’s a reminder to me that every single day is a gift. She also has an incredible spirit, strength, and grace so I am comforted by the fact that if anyone can come out of this, she can. Our family is hopeful but cautious.
My last conversation with her was on Mother’s Day, and it was a great one. No one really knows me like my Mom – she even knows things about me that I don’t know. She has supported me through every crazy thing I’ve ever wanted to do and been my champion since day one. I hope that I can support her now in the same way.
I love you, Mom.
