It is almost impossible to believe that 20 years have come and gone. Some days it feels like just a minute ago and others it seems like such a surreal and distant thing. On this day in 1991, my mom lost her battle with cancer after a long and valiant struggle. She fought hard, she complained little, and on that last day she left on her terms. Except for wishing she was here with us still, we couldn't have asked for anything more.
To mark the day, Hubby and I have signed up for a half-marathon that we plan to walk later in the year. We will make a donation in Mom's name to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and then hit the streets. Also I'm sending off 10" of my hair that was cut this week to Pantene Beautiful Lengths. It is all precious little, but every little bit helps for those that are still in the fight.
Miss you, Mom!
