Right now my mom is fighting for her life in intensive care. A sudden tragedy ironically hit our family like a large tsunami. The shock and aftershock creating large ripples and rifts for now weeks. You really don't know how important your mom is until one day she's not able to call you, to reach out, to check on you, to see how your day is going to talk, to laugh, to joke, to tell you why she's sad. She's fighting and that's been my mom for the 41 years I've known her. She will take on any opponent. A short woman in stature, but giant in life and heart. We continue to say our prayers and hope for a miracle. I figure if anyone deserves a second chance, it's her.

Where there is great love there are always miracles. -Willa Cather
