It's been 8 weeks since my mother died suddenly. Still doesn't feel real. I am heartbroken and missing her every single day. But, my life must go on. I will never take my time here for granted. It's a tough lesson to learn, but each day is so very precious.
I am a mom to the sweetest girls. They just turned 8 months old. Yes, they are twins! Identical twin girls. My mom was so excited to be their Grammy. She never knew any of her Grandparents and her own mother died very young. This was a new and very special bond for her. My husband, Steve, and our twin girls were living in Brooklyn, NY until early this year. After having the girls we knew we wanted to be closer to family. Both of our families live in upstate NY within 30 minutes of each other. As we made our plans to ditch the city life, we were so excited to move our girls into the arms of both sets of grandparents. The very day we packed up the moving truck and made our way from Brooklyn to Rensselear, NY- my mom suffered a ruptured aneurysm and passed away.
I want to dedicate this blog to my mom, Sharon Marie Koval Wright. She was the hardest working person I have ever known. She loved, worked, and dedicated her life to those she loved. The biggest gift of all- she taught me how to be a mom. Thank you for being such an amazing mom. I love you.
