“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 your beloved. But this is also the good news. They live forever in your broken heart that doesn’t seal back up. And you come through. It’s like having a broken leg that never heals perfectly—that still hurts when the weather gets cold, but you learn to dance with the limp.”
― Anne Lamott
After spending a fun week with my extended family, it felt bittersweet. Someone was missing and yet so many new wonderful people have been added to our lives through birth and marriage. My sisters joke that I am always the one that will cry when we start talking about Mom, but I'm okay with it--it is sad, we lost our mom. I've so glad that I've made it through the hardest part and that I've learned how to "dance with the limp."
