Tomorrow marks the third anniversary of my mother’s death. I’ve written about my mom before on this blog:
My mom, Lucy, died suddenly in March 2011, and all of my family felt her death keenly. My siblings and I have all struggled to some degree or another with her death. I was very close to my mom, and still struggle and miss her every day. She taught me so much about what it is to be a mom, a strong woman, and a woman of faith – lessons that I still try to integrate in my every day life. My mom had a great sense of humor, and you always knew she was up to something because she had a sparkle in her eye – if you were lucky enough, she’d loop you in. And though I didn’t see it very often, my mom had a temper too – one that blew you over and left you feeling a little guilty that you provoked it (yes, I might have done that once or twice ).
This is obviously a very emotional day/week for me, and for my family. If you feel so inclined, please spare a thought or a prayer for my family, I would appreciate it for sure. But in an effort to remember her, and not be so depressed, I’ve decided to do Random Acts of Kindness in her honor. I’ll be photographing them, and hash tagging them #RAK4Lucy. I would be honored if you, my readers, could complete one RAK and share it with me by email (behappybuypolish – AT – gmail DOT com) or post it on my Facebook page.
Thanks, dear readers. It means more to me than I’ll ever be able to tell you.
