Yesterday was Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year. It also happened to be the anniversary of the last day my beautiful Mother in Law spent on earth.
I never had the honor of meeting her, and I so wish that I did. Everyone says that my husband is so much like his beloved mama, that his sweet nature, and kind spirit come directly from her. Every time I look at a photo of her, I feel grateful for such a powerful female presence in his life, one that still lingers in our home today... in heart and thoughts and memories spoken... and what made the man I love so much, so much of who he is.
