Battles on the Homefront – A Mother’s Tale (Re-Blog)

I’ve been dreaming about my Mom lately. A lot. This is still the best post I’ve ever written While you read it please think of all the moms you know, whether living now or in the past.

Cordelia's Mom, Still

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMother’s Day is coming up. With that in mind, today’s re-blog is of my own first post (which I still consider to be the best one I ever wrote). 

The post was originally published on Cordelia Calls It Quits and was republished on the first day of my own blog with Cordelia’s/Kelly’s permission.  It’s a story that never grows old, and I present it today in honor of my own mother who died on April 29, 2013, and whose memory inspires my Teddy Rosalie series.
