The quote from my last post....
"Go forth seeking adventure.
Open your eyes, your ears, your mind,
your heart, your spirit and
you'll find adventure everywhere."
is how I am trying to move forward in this journey of life.
I approach an upcoming trip with excitement, fear, happiness, adventure, and slight sadness that I cannot call my mom to share it with her.
This life is an interesting one~ You never know what tomorrow will bring or what twists and turns you will encounter and where the roads will lead.
But I will try with all my might to live, laugh, love and enjoy the journey.
I have packed a few things, most importantly a journal from my best friend, a few books, comfortable shoes, my camera and and open heart and mind. This will be my first trip to Europe. Most will be done on my own~
I am hoping to grow and learn about myself, about the world, about the past and future.
I am filled with fear and excitement and curiosity and hope.
I will post about it all when I return!
I would not have been able to do this without the love and support of my wonderful family and amazing friends and most importantly, my mom!
Thank you for being part of my journey! I am truly a lucky woman...

Mothers Day.....

I greet this holiday with love and sadness~
Love for my beautiful Mother!!
Thankfulness that I got nearly 34 years with her before she died. I say those words still not believing that it is true.
I am Thankful that I am lucky enough to be her daughter.
To have laughed with her
and cried with her
and to love her and be loved by her...
To learn from her
and grow because of her
and love her so much to miss her this much...
I am so grateful that she is my Mother...
And that I am her daughter...
Even though she no longer walks on the earth along side me, she lives in my heart every moment!
I greet the holiday with sadness because it is not right that such an amazing person was taken from the world so soon.
She was such a blessing to everyone who crossed her path in this beautiful life.
Happy Mothers Day to all of the wonderful Mothers out there. I am not a mother myself but I know what an incredible job it is! I admire all of you so much!
Happy Mothers Day to my beautiful Mother, Rena~
She is the reason that this day is celebrated!!
