She was my guide, my mentor, my friend. We didn't always agree, but she was always in my corner and loved us all unconditionally. I will never come close to being the kind of mom she was to me.
Mom and our daughter shared an unbelievable bond. They were cut from the same cloth, joined at the hip. Oh, the adventures they shared -- cooking, sewing, entering contests at the state fair.
Mom and her sister were just about as opposite as two sisters could be, yet their bond was unbreakable.
My mom and dad were the best of buddies. After 54 years of marriage, they still loved each other's company.
Yesterday morning, everything was great. Today, the whole world looks different. And I'm trying to find my way without my mom.
