Tomorrow is Mother's Day, a particularly bittersweet day for me. My darling Mother left us so unexpectedly on Mother's Day (May 12, 1985). She was only 62 years old and was the light in my life, my best friend, my confidant. I've tried all these years to accept her death but I must admit the pain of her loss is as sharp as the day it happened. I find that I question why so many bad people live such long lives while the good seem to die young. Perhaps it is the reward for being a good person. I wanted to share a photo of my Mother today and tell her "Happy Mother's Day". She is missed so much.

Happy Mother's Day to all Mothers everywhere.
