It's not all that often that I post things on my blog that are personally sentimental, but today is an important day, because today signals an entire 10 years since my mom passed away. I was a senior in highschool when, after a few years of fighting cancer, my mother lost the strength for the battle.
She was an amazing woman--strong, creative, musical, funny, a great writer--although, a lot of that I truly had yet to see since she passed before I was done being a horrible teenager who didn't care enough to learn. And that, I'll always regret.
This is a photograph of my mother and I when I was young. In our photo album, she had penned next to it, "My favorite picture of me and Jennifer".
Here's to living life to its fullest.
