May the love of your friends and family surround you and fill your heart as you journey down this new road. It has been 2 years since my mom passed away and I know that the road ahead will bring you many ups and downs but know that your mom's love and presence will always be with you. Be sure to be kind and gentle with yourself. Sending you and your family lots of warm hugs. Many prayers also.
