A time to laugh, a time to weep

Not the loss alone,
But what
comes
after.
If it ended completely
At loss, the rest
Wouldn't
matter.

But you go on.
And the world also.

~ Gregory Orr

My mother with my cousin Judy taken on Christmas Day.

Looking at this picture makes me happy, and breaks my heart.

I am so proud of my mother who has walked through every new door with little hesitation.

A lovely photo of your mother. Holidays can be so painful when a loved ones is so obviously missing. What a beautiful example of grace she has shown.
