Day 7 - Someone Who Has Made Your Life Worth Living For

12/20/49 ~ 2/19/01
My mom.  Need I say more?  This woman made me who I am today, and didn't get to live long enough to witness some of my greatest accomplishments.  I know she would've been proud.  I miss her every day and can only dream of being able to pick up the phone and call her for advice or reassurance.  I wish we could swap teaching stories.  I wish she could pass along her wisdom as an educator.  I wish she could've been a grandma.  This coming week I have an opportunity to join a new (to me) Motherless Daughters group here in Colorado.  It'll be good to get back in touch with others who share my grief.
