I know it’s Wednesday, which I know typically means a happy hour, but it didn’t seem appropriate given what today means to my family.
Last year around this time you may have remembered me mentioning a family emergency and taking some time off from blogging. At the time I chose not to go into the details of what was happening to allow my family space and privacy. You see, unexpectedly, my Mother-in-Law passed away a year ago today. While it may seem odd to share something so personal on such a public space, my husband and I chose to write this post together, not for any kind of sympathy or pity, but instead as a way to honor her and remember her. She was always so kind, thoughtful, caring, loving, and bubbly, and her support of this little blog from the very beginning, as well as her support for both my husband and myself in everything we did, was unending. Though it hardly seems like enough, this post (and the little purple duck you may have seen on the sidebar), is our way of remembering what a wonderful woman she was.
From a Son to a Mother, a memorial and reflection.
