I wondered if my mom knew just how special she was to me before she died suddenly in an odd work accident? I found myself wondering if she ever realized what I thought of her? I was thinking about that last week during my visit at a Sacramento chiropractic center. I was laying on the table while the chiropractor as he examined me, and thinking about the fact that it was her intelligence that led me to have these appointments with him. Mom did not always go the traditional routes in life. She taught me that it is sometimes best to to try a variety of things until you find out what works best. Not everyone does that.
I knew my mom was different when I was pretty young. She wore hippie clothes instead of the business suits that some of the other mom’s wore. She would grow herbs instead of eating all the junk foods that most people ate. Rather than drinking sugar-laden sodas, she made her own teas and yogurt drinks. She would take a handful of supplements every day.
