I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always...

Ten years have come and gone since I got the phone call that rattled my world.  Being 19 and finding out your mother passed in the night is not something that anyone can prepare for, nor know how to navigate.  But I was supported by friends and family, and some people I didn't even know... Really, I suffered loss, but I gained love.

My brother and I took time this year to celebrate on anniversary of that day.  I remember singing a song in high school that said, "There'll be joy in the morning on that day.."  I know of the day that song spoke of, but I also know this:  TODAY there is joy.  My morning has come.

Do you see it?  Smiles can be found anywhere.


  1. I`m sorry that had to happen to you. But, I`m glad you`re able to find good in things and you`re living your life full of smiles. I bet your mother would be so happy to know that.

  2. I do see the smile! :) So sorry for your loss. I love those words "Today is joy. My morning has come".

  3. So sorry for you loss. You are a strong girl!!

  4. I do see the smile! I'm so sorry for you loss. I can only imagine how hard that must've been.


I love hearing from you! Thanks for making my day :)
