While I was back east visiting my wonderful and amazing mom last week, we had more unexpected loss in our community. It has been a very rough Spring here and with a tiny Valley like ours, it is about 2 degrees of separation. Loss and grief touches us all, as the threads are short between all of us.
Out of the 5 deaths, we have seen these last few months, I had a connection in some way to 4 of them. It is hard not to imagine the pain the families are feeling and my heart goes out to all those who are in the waves of grief.
And to the man who has taught me how to lean into my fear….Happy Birthday Hon! Here’s to another 45 together.
Remember each day, live it like it is your last and do one thing today that scares you.
