It's been over ten years since I lost my mother. She was just 48 years old when she lost her battle with lung cancer. Through the heartache and sadness of having to navigate this life without her, grief has taught me so much.
Even Too Much Love Is Never Enough
My mom was already stage four when she was diagnosed with cancer. Deep down I knew that the chances of her beating it were slim but I still fought like hell to save her life and I would do it all over again if I had the chance. I was so desperate in those moments, so afraid to lose her and so sad for all I knew she would miss. No matter how much love I gave, no matter how hard I fought..it was never enough to save her life.
The Resilience Has Always Been Inside Of Me
Grief teaches us that we possess an inner strength that we might not have known existed. It shows us that we can endure and persevere even in the face of tremendous pain and loss. I always say that we somehow find a way to live creatively with our bruised and broken heart.
Time Is Such A Thief
