Today’s Proverb is dedicated to my mom. Hard to believe, but it was almost 15 years ago that she passed away. She was the most wise, practically-minded and common-sensical person I knew. I miss turning to her for advice and so many other things.
For those who have lost parents, grief is such a complex, evolving process. For the longest time, I wasn’t able to get past the sadness. But then our oldest daughter, Jaia, was born (two years after mom died), and even as a toddler, she would comfort and console me on those extra sad days, turning my sadness to joy. So glad she is my mom’s namesake.
