I would have never believed it's been three years since I last updated my blog.
In 2010, I lost my Mom after a long and difficult battle with Alzheimer's and lung cancer. I think I miss her more now than I did immediately after her death, because I have less of a sense of relief and more of a sense of loss. She was suffering so much, that it was a deep blessing to have her pain-free, at long last. Now, the suffering is a more distant memory, and the reality of the fact that she has gone is more poignant.
But, I'm still making cards and creating other things, so I hope to be back, remembering to smile both at what I had and what is yet to come.
I love you, Mom. Always have and always will.
