Happy Mother's Day!



For 23 years, I was lucky enough to spend Mother's Day with my mom. While it was special, I never knew just how special until my mom passed away! The first Mother's Day without her was hard. It had only been 2 1/2 months since she passed away and I think that made it even harder to deal with. Mother's Day was never the same until I had Rylee. She brought back the happiness, the strength, the courage and the joy I was missing from my own mother. I feel like being a mother to Rylee has brought me closer to my own mother, even though she is no longer with us. I feel her presence in my heart as if she was here and I miss her dearly but I know she will be with us Sunday and in our hearts forver!

To all the mothers out there and to all who long to be mothers, I wish you a very ~
Happy Mother's Day!
