Taking some time.
Chris, Mom, Pat (my running mentor) & Me at the 2004 Chicago Marathon (my first full marathon!)
Just a quick note. I may not be blogging much this week because if I do 1) you are going to get bored & 2) it might turn into a sob fest.
This is a difficult week for me still though it's only been about 3 years since my Mom died. It's hard nonetheless & I always have a hard time not re-living the week's events. They are still too fresh in my head & on my heart.
We can easily make new friends, start new relationships, etc but never in our lives can we replace our parents. That is a void that can never be filled.
I have so much happiness in my life & God's blessings are clearly abundant but the sadness still remains.
So this week I'll just be taking time to remember my Mom.
