I have been fortunate. I have my mother still alive and well and across town. This isn't the case for everyone. Mother's Day means a lot to people. While I love my mother dearly, and recognize some of the sacrifice any mother goes through, I wonder how she is handling things. You see, HER mother has since passed on. It has been 7 years. I cannot imagine how difficult it has been for her, my aunts, and my great aunts in dealing with this loss in their lives. All I can do is show how her legacy and teachings Continues to live within me. Hopefully, my mom, aunts and great aunts will feel enlightened and uplifted in some way.
