“It was only a few months ago when I said goodbye to my mom.  I am grateful I held her hand as she took her last breathe. I took comfort knowing she was ready for her next chapter.  And it was truly an honor to help her transition peacefully from this world.

I thought the toughest part about losing my mom would be saying goodbye but as it turns out, the hardest part is learning to live without her.  I try to fill the void and the emptiness inside my heart every day.

I had a mother who loved me completely.  I realize how precious it is to have loved someone so much that it hurts when they leave.
