“Years ago, I wrote a letter to my mom telling her how much I appreciated her and all that she’d done for my siblings and me despite the challenges of being a single, teen-aged mom and the victim of domestic abuse who, by the age of 30, was twice divorced. I wasn’t there when she opened my letter but was told she was moved to tears. When she died a few years later, I found that letter in a mix of her cherished personal belongings. The idea that my words gave meaning and happiness to her life, one that was filled with so much hardship and despair, astonishes me to this day. Finding it again was a gift for me — a tangible reminder of how much that letter meant to her!"
