My mother was a strong woman. A woman so stronge that she battled cancer for sixteen years. All she ever wanted was to help others. She continued to work up until it was physically impossible for her to do so. My mother was a nurse. She took care of others her whole life and the hardest part of the disease was watching that being taken away from her. I miss you everyday. I'm sure if you were around today we would be the best of friends. Not having you here is one of the lonliest feelings to have. I know you are with me in spirit and this keeps me going.
