It is August and I am pleased to say that I am almost at the end of this amazing Journey with my mother on her trip around the world. I have visited places that I know I want to go to in person one day and have cried and laughed at her many different stops along the way across the world. She was so brave and fearless, not the woman I grew up with. I have learned that people change along the way in life and that one should remain open to the possibilities in life. She was not the woman I knew and I wished she was still alive so I could tell her that she was an amazing person and how much I truly love her. Try and remember to see people for who they are and not for all their short comings. ALL of us have war scars and have traveled this earth in different ways, making non of us better or worse people, just different. In that way we should celebrate our differences and move forward with love and forgiveness in our hearts. Looking forward to the edits and hopefully the book will be done by the New Year!
