This is the first Mother’s Day without my Mom… and I know there are many of you facing the same challenge today. The COVID Pandemic has been very cruel to the whole world the past 15 months. We’ve lost many loved ones…and due to strict quarantine rules, many of you were unable to even be there for you loved one’s final hours. My heart aches for you and the emptiness you feel from not being there. But you do have something to fill that void…it’s all the pleasant memories you have of that person. So take all those sweet, delightful, and good memories of your loved one and cling to them…for you may have not been able to hold their hand at the end, but you can hold on to those memories now.
