Mother’s Day Week. Admittedly and privately to all of us who miss our Mom’s intensely, we just try to make it through it. Our Mom’s were our Hero’s–extraordinary examples of God’s love to us in its highest realm. We have loved them from the first time we opened our eyes. They have loved us though every misstep–and applauded every victory. Candidly, I miss her every day still. One day soon the hugs and embraces we crave within our souls so vividly will become sight. But today I will celebrate the incredible life of JoAnn Hughes Looper. Mom–see you soon.
