Yesterday was the one year anniversary of my mom’s passing. In some ways it seems so long ago and at other times the pain of her loss is raw and overwhelming. Losing grandparents and even my dad didn’t fully prepare me for this loss.
We spent the day remembering this woman who inspired so much love and taught us how to be the parents and grandparents we are today. She is missed (and yes that’s me in the photo with her).
