I woke up this morning and you were the first person I thought of...
What else is new, right...?
I still can't believe you left us on May 7th, 2010,so very suddenly. I am grateful you didn't suffer. That would have broken my heart.
Last evening I wrote about you. I do that a lot these days, as I am a writer. Yes, I think you would love to read my work, and the writing of many of my friends. You gave me the burning desire to pursue this passion. You were indeed one of the most brilliant women I have ever known in my life, so well read and such a beautiful writer yourself.
I know you were the best editor a gal could ever ask for...!
So, last evening, I was checking out Vicki Warner's newly updates website called Grief Can Heal. She is a warm and compassionate lady and you would love her, as I do.
Vicki has a "Forum" on her Website where she asks questions that are universal, hoping that we can all learn from each other. That really appeals to me as a teacher and as a nurse. The question that naturally got me thinking about you was: "What has been your biggest loss in life"?
I can almost hear you chiding me! You always told me that "death was a natural part of life'. As a nurse, I helped families deal with this every day. I am forever helping others in times of sadness, whether family, friends, students... Compassion and caring comes easily for me.
I now tell people what they mean to me, right away. I am not sure if I will get a second chance.
I thank you for helping me to see how important this is, Mom. It's helped me more than you will ever know get through the worst time of my life in June, 1999 and it has helped me each and every day since.
I have learned through your beautiful example that life indeed goes on. I have learned that we have clear and distinct choices in living each and every day appreciatively, simply and lovingly.
I hope you feel as close to me as I do to you as I 'look up to the sky' every day and night. Somehow I know you do, Mom. I love you, girl...and we are all doing good.
But you knew that already, didn't you ...?
