Apropos of Nothing

My mother died.

Granted, this was about 6 years ago, but still.

Sitting at graduation I cried.  I cried because, even though I had my family around me, the person that I wanted most to share it with wasn’t there.  And I cried because it was a “Gift of the Magi” moment.  You see, my mother’s death, along with a handful of other things, guided me towards becoming a nurse.  So at that moment I was missing one of the most important people of my life, but if she had been there, then that moment might never have come to be.
