I lost my mom three years ago November 29.  To this day, my heart breaks.  But to this day, my heart has joy for her in her peace.  Never mind what I would have wanted.  She received God’s grace in a very sudden, but very painless death.  I will miss her always and I will always cherish the years I was blessed to have her as my own.  I love you, Mom!


Be still and the earth will speak to you. ~ Navajo proverb
