Today is bittersweet. I am lucky to be a mom to two wonderful kids, who spoiled me. Early this morning, while I went for a run, they went to the bagel shop to pick up one of my favorite breakfast foods – bagels of course. My amazing husband made bacon that melted in my mouth and scrambled eggs, just the way I like them. Add fresh pineapple and a cup of tea… perfect. Well almost. The only thing missing was my mom-in-law, who would always pop in on Mother’s Day morning with a plant or flower for our yard. Then we’d take her out for a fancy brunch. My favorite, going to this New Orleans inspired restaurant called Copeland’s.
Sadly, we lost my mom-in-law last year – a couple days after Thanksgiving – to an aggressive form of ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease). ALS S-U-C-K-S. *can you hear me shouting?* It is a cruel, cruel disease that S-U-C-K-S. At least I know she’s now in a better place.
I love you Trish… and I miss you every day…
