A Mom's Love

My mom passed away in January of this year from the effects of Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease, and it has been emotionally hard, especially for my dad. If I had been for as many years as they had, I might be able to grasp that.

That said, I remember with fondness the many experiences and positive traits that have permeated into my own life: faith, hope, goodness, and love.

Years ago, some of the family visited Arches National Park in Utah, and while my mom and I were enjoying the view at a famous landmark called Delicate Arch, someone in our group snapped this picture. It is one of my favorite pictures of my mom and me, and it in many ways symbolizes her cheerful spirit.

Miss you, Mom.

Has there been someone  who has had a lasting impact on your life? Please share.
