But the moment your own precious baby is born, it is the most wondrous miracle on the planet.

Every day, thousands of people all around the world die.Death is a universal experiemce shared by all of us. It is not a first world or third world event.
But the moment your own beautiful mother dies, it is the most crushing and painful sorrow on the planet.
|Mom, me, and Juliet (1 week)|
I give thanks during this season for the beautiful gift of life that I have been given this year. But I miss my mom. I will be cooking a turkey for the very first time as we are hosting Thanksgiving at our house this year. That was my mom's job, and now it's become mine. I wasn't ready to have the torch passed yet. I feel untethered. We'll all do just fine, but Mom would have done it better.
