Celebrating the Mamas

Several of my friends have lost their mamas recently.  This makes me feel sad and vulnerable and I have empathy, imagining what this gap must feel like to them.

I have fear of losing my own mama and just want to love her up, not knowing how much time we have left together. We never know for any of us, of course, but seeing my friends experience this time in their lives makes me think. 

It makes me aware that time is passing and that we are aging and so are our parents.

This weekend I will celebrate my other mama and grieve along side my friend and my other family as we celebrate her beautiful life together and share memories and stories from over the past years. We will remember.

Wishing comfort and peace and love to all who grieve, and especially to Cindy, Laura, and Katie. Be well, friends.
