Yesterday was a sad day…the world lost a gentle, beautiful, courageous soul. She was a friend to many, daughter, sister, cousin, auntie, and most of all; loving wife, and mother of two beautiful children. I knew her back in school, and over the last couple of years, many of us reconnected with her over Facebook. We watched her battle cancer with courage and resolve, and always with a smile on her face.
With Mother’s Day coming up here’s a thought. Perhaps, instead of (or in addition to) a nice gift for your Mom, consider making a donation in your mother’s name for a cause that is close to her heart. My friend Carla already did that with the help of her fellow blogging friends. I made a donation to The Ride to Conquer Cancer on behalf of my friend (she was training to ride in this years ride). It doesn’t have to be a lot of money, even just a few dollars. Even a small amount can make a big difference.
Hope you’ll consider it.
