Gratitude Tribute – Prompt #5

(Select a person you are grateful for and write a tribute to them)
One of the people I am most grateful to have had the privilege to know is my Mother.  For those of you who never had the opportunity to know her, I can attest to the fact that you truly missed out.   My mom was a matter-of-fact kind of lady who called it like she saw it.  She was extremely kind hearted and would do anything for anyone but she didn’t sugar coat the truth.  She taught me the value of being true to myself and always treating others with respect.  The basis for most of the actions I take in my life are based upon what I believe my mother would think.  When my mother passed away 5 years ago it felt like I had lost the last person who loved me unconditionally.  I am daily remind of how lucky I was to have her as “my” mom.  I am so grateful for all the lessons she taught me and I miss her every day.
