Carolyn what a lovely blog. I especially enjoyed the notes about your mom. I know your heart aches each day and if my life experience is any indicator it always will. Life without the ones we love can be a challenge but knowing we will be with them later on softens the time we are here.
Again, great blog and wonderful thoughts.
Alice your other mom
