This 3 generation photo of my mom, Ruth Consaley, my daughter, Katie, and I, was taken several years ago.
While Mom is no longer with us, her wisdom and kindness resonate with me every day. This Mother’s Day will be a special one, since we are preparing for Katie’s wedding at the end of the month. We feel my mother’s spirit throughout all of our planning and know she is looking down smiling with pride and joy.
How do you most want to be like your Mom?
My mom was just a darn good person. Selfless, caring, loyal, smart. She loved to laugh. Everyday simple pleasures and her family are the things she valued most. Her faith was strong and yet she never forced in on others.
She is a tough act to follow… and I will always love her for that.
