One Blurry Year

I went for a walk today and thought of her.
One blurry year has passed in a moments time.
It hasn't been easy. It's been hard. It's been sad.
It's been difficult to understand why God would take my mother at age 47.
On a personal level she wasn't ready to die, she wanted to live.
Cancer, and more importantly God, had other plans.
Though it hasn't all been bad.
I try to hold on to the happy times.
I speak to her still, silently in my head, I imagine she can hear me.
I can take her anywhere with me.
I hope she enjoyed the views of the Harbour Bridge.
I know I did.
Her death has taught me to embrace life.
To live the life I want.
To not hold back.
To love and to forgive.


*I took this picture on my walk today. It seemed fitting on a day like today.

I know you are a wordsmith friend, but this picture is worth far more than 1,000 words to me. It makes me feel pain, love, fear, and strength all at the same time. If it were a poster on sale at Meijer I would purchase it.

for sale... not on sale... though that would be double bonus

Lmao, I love you friend and I think it is great you buy my picture if it were on sale at Meijers. Ha ha =P

I'm glad this pic encompasses a lot of feelings - because I was sure feeling a ton that day - glad to see that came through.
