One year.

I cannot believe it has been a year since my mom passed away. It has been a most difficult year, but it has also flown by so fast. It seems like just yesterday I was sitting with her and so often I reach for the phone to tell her something I know she'd love. She taught me so much and continues to do so. I miss you mom!!!

I'm in Southern California to be with my dad, soak up some warm sun and see some old friends.

Joan, I am so happy we had her as our mom. Love how you say she continues to teach us. I have a pile of cards and quotes she has sent me over the years and I love reading through them. They say something different to me as time goes by, as if she needs me to know her new thoughts for me. She loved this photo too. She had so much joy in making us the best sandwiches, and you can see it in her face as she did it for us even when she was so ill. This photo was taken on her last birthday, November 22, 2008. So happy you are there with Dad and Isabel to make this anniversary. Love, Cathy

Joan... this is just beautiful! I know what you mean... it's been 10 years for me and there are still days when I want to call my mom... I love that picture of your mom... this is how I remember her. It's such a beautiful picture of her... Blessings for your day...
