#56: Happy Mother's Day, 2012

Three years.

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.
