Remembering Mom

I pause to remember my mother today–the anniversary of her passing away. It’s been many years, but seems like yesterday and I still miss her physical presence in my life every day.

I wonder what she would say about my successes as a writer, lecturer and instructor? In particular, she’d be thrilled to read my six books and numerous magazine articles. Mom was always my biggest cheerleader as well as my confidante and best friend. I know she would also be very proud that my book, Three Slovak Women is now going into its seventh printing and still selling very well.

Here’s one of my favorite photographs of my mother as a young woman.

So, eternal rest mom…Love you always!
