I still have yet to find the words that will do her memory justice, but I will continue to seek them out with love and honor.

The paragraphs in italics are my mother's, quoted verbatim.

Oh wow ... this is incredible. What a beautifully haunting way to tell this  story.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I know that that's a kind of loss whose hurt never quite goes away.

"I remind myself to be strong in times of turmoil, just as she was, even if it were not an easy task – I would do this for her. I would honor my mother's cherished memory every single day, by never surrendering."

Your mother was strong, and although I'm newer to your circle, I can tell that you really take after her in that way. I think you would make/are making her very proud.

I know this has received a DD, the ultimate feature, but I had to share this again. I have featured it in my Fantastic Favorites Feature.

This is...breathtaking. I am fighting back the tears as I read this, thinking of my own mother as well (as many of us have mentioned already). What she has done for myself and all her children is worth fighting for, and I can't see me losing my mother at this point in my life. It would be, too hard to even imagine happening. She is part of my strength, just as so many are. 

Fantastic, and a well deserved, DD.
