I wanted to dedicate this post to my wonderful mother. It has almost been a year since her death and as feelings of sadness want to overcome me I feel strongly that she wouldn't want me to dwell on the sadness but instead be happy and celebrate Heavenly Father's plan of salvation and the knowledge that I will see her again. The title of my blog: "New Day New Start Happy Heart" was something my mom created and said often. This post is in celebration of her wonderful, Christlike life and the impact she had on her family, friends, and complete stranger's lives. I love you Mom!
