I’m crying as I write these words. I miss my mother so very much, much more than words can possibly express.
Yes, I have zero doubt that her suffering has now ended completely. For this, I am most grateful.
My mother has always been my rock, my northstar. I feel completely and utterly lost without her.
Nevertheless, I choose to honor her most sincerely by simply moving forward, one step at a time, in my life. I need, after all, to be very strong for my daughter at this time.
Please grant me the strength to keep moving forward, in the very ways that most honor our precious Lord.
