In recent months I’ve written more about my dad as we (and I) navigate the waters of grief and loss. Which makes sense, but might give you the sense that he’s more important to us than our mom.
You know I was on the launch team for the Gutsy Girls: Strong Chrisitan Women Who Impacted the World. When the author asked if any of us on the launch team wanted to write about a person we know who is gutsy, my mom instantly came to mind–you’ll see why in the post.
What I didn’t know, is Amy (the author) selected the piece about my mom to be the lead off piece in the series!
Mom, the line of people who love and admire you is long, far longer than you realize. But as is befitting to your values, the front of the line is crowded with your family. It has been our rare privilege in the months, that are moving into years, since Dad died to walk with you and continue to learn from you. We love you.

I love you. And I know Elizabeth, Laura, Del, Sue, and the girls are right there with me on that sentiment. You are a gutsy girl.
