    My mom died this morning but the stroke took her years ago. I often have that same feeling of wanting to talk to her and then realizing she's not there anymore.  Thanks for your message. It helped.

      I am glad the message helped. Another thing I want to say is that my mom and I did not always have the best relationship. She could be difficult and cranky and we had a lot of issues with dealing with her prescription drug dependencies.  The last few years were messy and sometimes upsetting, but I find that my predominant memories of her now that she is gone are positive. It is like the bad stuff has just been washed away and all that is left is the good.  I am so grateful for that.  I miss her now, and my thoughts are of the hugs and sweet conversations and the laughter we had.  I am so glad the bad stuff is fading away.  All that is left is love.  

      If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there.
