Grieving and Celebrating


We grieve because we are losing mom. We grieve that time is so short. We grieve because she can’t always communicate. We grieve because we can’t go camping with her this fall.

But we celebrate because we have these precious days with her. We celebrate getting to talk to her. We celebrate her smile. We celebrate her heart of kindness and concern.

And we celebrate, because our Abba Father gives grace for each moment.

    Is it possible to find joy in the pain? Can we grieve and celebrate at the same time? What a journey this has been. I’m so glad your hear right now, sister :) Mom loves you both very much!
