My First Mother's Day with Leif
Thirty-three years ago I first celebrated Mother's Day with Leif in my arms. Today is the first Mother's Day since then he will not be alive in my life. There is a hole in my heart, but I am grateful for those 33 years. I only wish his adult life had been a happy one, that he were still here.
Today I will remember the happy times.
And today I will remember that I have another wonderful son, Leif's brother Peter Anthony, who is six years older than Leif, and who has been the light of my life for 39 years. I have been blessed.
