Lana and Lela

"If you have not already, you will lose someone you can't live without, and your heart will be badly broken, and the bad news is that you never completely get over the loss of a beloved person. But this is also the good news. They live forever in your broken heart that does not seal back up. And you come through. It is like having a broken leg that never heals perfectly-that still hurts when the weather is cold-but you learn to dance with the limp" -Anne Lamott

Well, the weather is a bit cold at moments right now, but I'm thankful that I have a new life to look forward to this month. One thing my mom taught me is to truly enjoy children and their childhood and that is a gift that continues to give. This is the last day that I spent with my mom and I am so thankful for it and the 33 years I had before that.

I'm so sorry :(

I lost my mother when I was 30. It's such a profoundly sad thing. A hole in your heart that never heals. But the raw agony eventually fades to a dull ache. Your mom sounds like she was a wonderful person and I know she'll live forever in the hearts of all the people who love her.

I was following your adoption journey, as we are on one ourselves, and read this post about your mother. I am 34 years old and lost my mom 1.5 years ago. She was only 54 and it's just such a hard thing to go through. The only thing I know, is that time does help! I will say a prayer for you and am so sorry for your loss.
