A Heavy Heart

My heart has been heavy.  So heavy that I had to step away for awhile.

You see, I lost my Mom in July.  It was all very sudden.  She told us something might be wrong and then, in a flash, she was gone. 

My head knows that this is something that everyone must go through.  But this was something that no one in my family was prepared for.  Mom was one of the healthiest people that any of us knew.  No one could keep up with her.  I keep trying to make sense of everything that happened and I have finally come to the realization that I never, ever will. 

There are many important lessons that a mother teaches a daughter and throughout my lifetime I was taught well.  Mom gave me many gifts, one of which was the love of sports.  It's definitely not one of your typical mother-daughter bonding things but it always held a special place for the two of us.

Thank you Mom!
