Today is my mom’s birthday. As most of you know, I lost mom on Nov 28, 2010. Needless to say, it has been a strange and bittersweet day.
Mom was an amazing person. A singer, artist, interior designer, teacher, social worker, minister, and Sensei, she was the epitome of intense and passion-filled.
Mom raised me as a single mom, not marrying again until I was 14. My dad (step-dad, technically) is amazing and their love for each other taught me what loving relationships should look like.
Mom’s final gift to me was my upcoming book, 101 Success Secrets. I finished it and sent it to my editors 2 hours before she passed. This book is filled with so much of her….her wisdom and her approach to life.
I love you Mom. I have no words to express how I’m feeling without you. Rest in peace.
