This is so not normally me, but the song touched me today. I was going to go with the Geoff Moore version, but I actually like the video with this one. It helps me to know that there are millions of others out there that feel a deep loss. Over the past almost three weeks I've felt so much love from so many people - my family-family, my friends, my church family. All the cards, well-meaning words, prayers, and flowers mean so much. I've especially found the words from other women who have lost their mothers and know just what I'm feeling to be such a huge comfort. I've never really understood the point of things like cancer survivor groups and that kind of stuff, but now I do. Kinship through experience is a powerful thing. I'm glad that most of the women I know and love don't know what this feels like, but for those of us women that, unfortunately, do, thank you especially for sharing your words of wisdom and solace with me as I join your ranks.
