I am happy to say that I was able over time to grow as a person and learn to appreciate my mother and her ability to do her best especially when the odds were working against her. I am humbled to recognize my own flaws and fears that have guided some of my less than perfect decisions and have led me to greatly appreciate my mother even more.
Sadly on November 18th, 2008 my mother fought her last battle in this life with the same dignity and humor that she had always possessed. My mother is finally at peace and I will always cherish the gift of humor that she instilled in me. To be able to laugh in the face of adversity with a loving heart and a head held high….. Thank you, mom you will forever be remembered.
In honor of my mother I am including the links to her favorite food posts.
