Mom was amazing. Like all mothers and daughters we had our differences. There were many years of drifting apart. Our journey together came full circle when my niece Cari Broding and I hosted Mom's 90th birthday party at Mission Bay Hilton. 96 guests all but a few direct descendants and spouses. It was an wonderful time along the bay.
Mom loved the beach. As the years moved forward, she and I would spend 'girls weekends' together in La Jolla. A few of these alone but also with others. Cathy, Margo, Ellie and Cari made those times very special.
The past few years were tough on Mom's health. I was blessed to be able to be with her after a particularly difficult surgery spending 5 months with her. We'd often talk about our faith. She was my compass and inspiration to embrace the love of God.
As her body got more and more tired of this world, our conversations were long distance. No matter what I shared with her, the struggles in my life or the joys she would always say "Remember Beth, All Is Gift!" She is my gift from God.
She will always be with me. In the eyes of my children and grandchildren, in the memories invoked by the many photos I have of her and Dad, and in the sunset on the beach.
