This has been a difficult time for me. The launch date for our book Stardom Happens is April 14th, just a few days away, and I’m so excited it’s finally happening. But just two weeks ago my mother passed away and I’m still in a state of grief. She was ninety-five and it was expected, yet even though I knew it was coming, it has left a huge hole in my heart. I am trying to keep doing what I need to do, knowing she is cheering me on as she always did.
I was very lucky to have a mother who encouraged me to be and do whatever I wanted. She was a person I could go to with all my joys and sorrows and she would listen. Sometimes that’s all we need, a soul who will listen. Even when she disagreed with my life choices she accepted me and loved me. I always knew I was loved, no matter what I did. Hard to ask for anymore than that.
I want to help people with this book, give families an opportunity to have a positive performing experience, and I know my mother will be helping me do that. She is there for me and for the families and on this day I will continue with renewed energy thanks to her.
