May angels lead you in

("Hear You Me" by Jimmy Eat World)

So... life has taken a drastic turn of events in the last month.  I'm sharing this photo for two reasons.

1. DC is experiencing the most snow in its history

2. This photo was taken on December 20, 2009 when I was snowed in DC and unable to get up to CT to see my mom.

It reads:

Hi mom, love you! Be home soon! -Amy

I would eventually make it back to CT in time for the holidays, but what I didn't know is that my mother's 13 year battle with breast cancer would come to end shortly thereafter.

I love her and miss her dearly.
