My childhood friend just laid her mother to rest. Peggy died after a long battle with cancer. In the pamphlet distributed at Peggy's memorial service, her daughter shared this:
"She is our mom - the love is immeasurable and the pain is unbearable."
These words have been ringing in my ears ever since. I knew Peggy as my friend's mom, but didn't really think of her as a mom until she was gone. Losing a mom does seem absolutely unbearable. I shudder at the thought of my children losing their mom one day.
If only we could freeze time. That's just what I want to do right now. Freeze time and be a mom forever.
I think perhaps the best and worst thing about death is that life goes on.
