Today is the fifth anniversary of my mother’s passing. There’s not much else to say that I didn’t already in a previous blog post except that I miss her immensely. There are times when I feel rudderless or lack confidence that I wish she were here. Mom never really told me what to do with my life, but she was always my strongest supporter and she just always made me feel like I could do anything. My ego and self-confidence have never been strong. I think she knew that and did here best to cultivate them. Everyone should have someone like that in their lives.
I am closer than every to my father now, and I am grateful for that. It’s kind of a cliche to say, but my parents are my heroes, more so than any celebrity, public official, intellectual or anyone I know. So I welcome this chance to get to know on a deeper level the man who inspires me so much
In fact, all of my family have been drawn closer by missing mom! She was a woman who gave so much for others, and perhaps this was her last gift to us, forcing us all to realize how much we matter to one another. Thanks Mom!
