We also have had lots of babies born. The circle of life - it really is a beautiful, sacred truth.
My siblings and I will have our 24th Mother's Day this Sunday without our mom. Of course everyone's grief experience is different, but mine has been that this sadness of yearning for my mom has never really gone away...it has just moved over to make room for joy. Lots and lots of joy.
So if this is your first year without your mom, I would like to assure you that you will survive, to encourage you to be gentle with yourself, and to challenge you to say just a simple word of thanks this weekend, and daily actually. I promise you, it may take a while, but life will continue to be very very sweet.
Sending out lots of love, Corinne
