Ten Years Ago Yesterday…

It hardly seems possible. It seems like only yesterday that she was still with us. And I catch myself still reaching to pick up the phone to give her a call…

On May 31, 2005, the one person that I knew longer than anyone else on the planet, left for a better life in a brand new world free from pain and troubles and disease. She, along with my dad, wore big shoes. And when he went on ahead of her back in 1987, she was given the task of wearing both pairs which she did with aplomb. An inspiration to all who knew her, she was the rock of our whole family for decades. Loving life and with a never say never attitude, my mom set goals and attained them all throughout her life. She even made the difficult look easy! She was a tough act to follow and set the bar high… which made everyone who knew and loved her a better person for it. A fighter all the way to the end, I hope to grow up to be half the woman she is. I know she will be with me, even now, every step of the way.

Every now and then I will catch the drift of lilacs and cigarette smoke floating faintly on the air and I know it is her saying “hello” and watching over me. And even though she resides in a higher, loftier dimension from this one, I know that she is always there for me and her grand kids and her great granddaughter…if only we just reach out to her with our thoughts and prayers. Still she keeps me strong through the highs and lows of life. One day again we shall be together to laugh and chat as we used to. But for now, I have faith that she is with me in spirit, watching out for me, sharing my victories, propping me up when I need it, cheering me on even now.

Thank you, Mom. I love you…Mom...
