Another thing, every now and then you get a chance to be in the presence of someone that just feels like home. Take that to heart, its what life is about. How many of us get to meet our soul mate? If you do, don't ever give them up, either, under any circumstance.
Mom is gone and she left a huge space that is allowing me room to focus on what needs to be. Life is changing and I'm ready for it, ready for what is next-- but much change tries our patience and I feel like a Ferrari stuck in the mud, but know its only a matter of time before I get traction and then, its on :)
