I visited mom a few weeks ago when I learned she was undergoing some tests. We had a beautiful final conversation that I will carry with me forever. I believe that even though we didn’t speak it, we both knew that it was our goodbye. I am sad and I will rally when I am ready. I am most at peace with the fact that she and my dad are together again. She missed him terribly these past eight years.
My life feels strangely out of sync. I’m not much interested right now in doing anything or even being in conversation. I am however, deeply committed to the Women’s Wisdom Retreat I am facilitating on September 24th. I want to gather these women and offer them the love and support they want as they transition and settle in their lives. It is my passion and my purpose and what brings me alive.
And, so I look at life from a new perspective; leaning into those who care for me and finding the lessons that will shape my path in the days and weeks ahead. Bless us all.
