Happy Mothers day to my Mom....
Mom even though you are no longer with me, I think of you every day. I tell you with my mind everything I do and how I wish you were here with me to see me and tell me what to do in life.
Every time I run I know you are there with me watching over and protecting me. I feel you often when I am running the trails. I can smell you and sometimes feel you touch me or call my name when I am alone on a trail.
I am never afraid because you are protecting me from up above.
I love the life you gave me. I love how I take after you I have courage and I am stubborn, and most of all I'm not afraid of being alone.
I was always afraid as a little girl to be left alone. I would lock all the doors and hide in my room.
Now I run wild in the wilderness afraid of nothing. You taught me to love what I do and live life.
I carry you with me everyday in my heart and I will always love you. And I want you to know you were the best Mom in the whole wide world.
Happy Mothers day! I love you!

That was a beautiful post. I love that you are so brave and bold. I'm still afraid to run trails on my own, but I get braver every time I read your posts. Thank you, Amy
