It is early morning and my hands are very shaky as I write, but I just feel that I need to share this new and different challenge that I have this week!
Sunday morning my father called, to let us know that a week ago today(Wednesday) my mother suffered a mild heart attack and is at the Jewish General recovering from double bypass surgery.! (Mom has never been physically sick, ever!)
She was very adamant that I was to finish my walk, so my family kept this news from me as long as they could!
Although she is the sweetest, softest soul ever, she has proven to be strong and courageous and is doing very well so far.
As frightened as I was when I spoke to my dad, I must match her strength and pour all of my energy into completing my journey, and making my way home to her!
This is for you mommy! xoxoxox
