This is one of my absolute favorite pics of my mom. It is the last picture I have of her and was taken just a few days before she passed away. It tells so much of who she is- loves her kids and grandkids so much and is so proud of them and showing them off. I am grateful for the time I was able to spend with her before she passed away. It’s crazy to think back on the events of that day 3 years ago. I would never want to go through those experiences again, but I am grateful that Heavenly Father has allowed me to grow and learn through those experiences. My faith in Jesus Christ and the promise of Eternal families has been greatly strengthened. I am grateful for the lessons my mom taught me and the things she continues to teach me and the lessons I am finally understanding. Missing her isn’t easy and some days are definitely harder than others, but luckily the pain has subsided a bit and she will always hold a place in my memories and my heart. I love you Mom.
