This is my favorite picture of my Mom on her 65th Birthday....13 years before she died suddenly at the age of 78. Her name was Carmen and she was from Puerto Rico.....which makes me half-Puerto Rican. Yes, she is a distant cousin to that other recently "famous" person of a high government appointment from Puerto Rico, who looks remarkably like Mom at the age of 55! They never met, and have quite different political views, but I am certain Mom looked down from heaven, and was so proud of her cousin's success, and I only wish she'd been here to be in attendance for such a grand event for a family member....even if a 3rd cousin!

Mom passed one year ago tomorrow at 1:02 p.m. To say it's been a difficult year would be an understatement! I never realized what a journey this was, and how personal at that, it would be! I know it is not over....the journey of grief, that is....but am hoping that I am at least turning a milestone down this long a very narrow path....made for only one....me!
