My Mother

Yesterday was the day my mother passed away. It has been nine years. But sometimes it seems like I just spoke to her yesterday. She taught me so much wisdom on life. Yet in her passing she taught me so much more.
That life is so short for all of us,
Never to take anyone for granted,
Always tell your love ones how much you care.
Last but not least.. Just to live each day to it's fullest!

She was a tiny little thing about 4' 9". She had a sharp tongue and wasn't afaraid to say what she thought. Some people didn't like this at all. But if you were her friend or loved one. She would always put you first. Standing up for what she felt was right. I wish I had a little more of her spirit!

So maybe today you could pick up your phone and call a loved one. Just to say hello and see how they are doing! You'll feel better afterwards and so will they!

She taught you well, and you're right - we should never take for granted one single day...
