Sorry for the delay in posts. I spent the past week with my mom at home who unfortunately passed away from Cancer on Wednesday. My mother was an amazing human who continued to teach me things right up until the end. An Artist, teacher, lover of life, and a mother. Always growing and never sitting still for too long. She was a do-er till the end who held the bar high for herself and those around her. Her life was worth celebrating and thankfully she was able to come home from the hospital for the last 6 days of her life and celebrate we did. She told us all that her last wish was to die alone. We told her that was not an option - too many people who loved her had her surrounded day and night. But being my mother (who cut her own path in life) she managed to slip away on her own terms in a brief moment when she was alone - getting her wish. My mom was a maverick and had a thirst for discovery. She passed that gene on to me and when I begin to feel uncomfortable because I'm sitting still I know that's just my mom in me. She loved to ride with me too and never liked it when I took it easy for her, always whispering in my ear "Faster Brad!". I will miss her every day.
