Her passing has not only left a hole in my life, it's made me stop and think. Whose life am I impacting? Am I making a difference in the lives of my family and friends? My community? Mom was 90 when she died. Seems like such a long time, but she was the first to say those ninety years went in a blink. And boy, do I understand. Oh, Lord, help me to pack each day with kindness and grace. Don't let me waste time in mindless pursuits or on bitterness or resentment. Help me be thankful for each day and each person in it.
And Mom, rest in peace. I love you!
