A difficult August 1st to feel optimistic - but Mom would be disappointed if we didn't at least try. This month I am hoping for a little extra strength and courage.
It has been a very difficult couple of weeks in our house. My mom is at home, in her own bed, surrounded by her loved ones. Thank you to everyone for your cards, flowers, baking sheets, emails, notes, phone calls, pastas, soups, cookies, cakes - for your stories, your love, your support and for sharing your heartbreak. I feel like I know my mom's blog followers well...even the ones I don't know face to face. You will never know the strength, encouragement and purpose you have given to my mom and family.
