    Happy Mother's Day

    It has been six and a half years since my mother died. She was my mother and my father growing up as my Dad died when I was two and mom remarried when I was 21. I would give her Mother's Day cards and Father's Day cards until she died. There is not a day that goes by that I do not think of her and wish just one more time I could hear her say "I love you, Mike"

    To all of the mothers out there, a very Happy Mother's Day to you; to all of the children out there lucky enough to still have you mother in your life, good for you! Let her know how much you love her and do not take a single day for granted. Life is...ephemeral.

    The picture is my favorite one of her; it was her graduation from Nursing School in 1949, and that is the way I always remember her. I was at her side when she died and went to her glory in 2007 but that one picture is how Mom will always look to me.

    I love you, Mom!
