Remembering Mom

It’s been 7 years since my mother lost her battle with lung cancer and not a day goes by that I don’t think of her or see her in everything that I do. She was a best friend, mother, and inspiration to, not just myself, but everyone who had the privelage of knowing her. So, this mother’s day, I want to celebrate her by sharing just a few of the little things she loved, things that remind me of her, and other fun ways she used to let my sister and me know that we were her world.
