she knows the feelings all too well, since having been through it just a little while back with her own mom.
this is how we connected. or rather how i contacted her.
i read her blog and she was talking about her feelings of losing her mom. i cried all night that night knowing that i too would some day soon be navigating through my own journey of my mom's illness.... she recounted her mixed emotions of love and anger and grief for the loss, and yes, also relief for a parent who has had to endure pain and sickness for so long. so utterly bitter sweet.
i instantly felt connected to her. she knew how it felt. she had made it 'through', as difficult as it was, she made it 'through'. and that was just what i needed to hear. if she could make it through, well then, so could i. i wasn't going to fall apart. and my world wouldn't come crashing down around me. i could and would make it 'through' too.
(my mom's recent scare in the hosptial a week ago)
i dedicate this piece i very recently created , 'she kept them close to her heart', to both her and her friend.
sending lots of light, love, and prayers for a peaceful heart to her friend.
