“If there is one thing in life that I have learned about life it is.. it goes on.”~Robert Frost
A weekend filled with beauty. The wedding of my handsome nephew and his darling new bride. A weekend filled with moments of missing my mom desperately but of course knowing she was infact actually there, amongst us all. Her ever gentle hand guiding her husband, her children, her grandchildren and her precious 2 great-grandchildren through the days. She was present in the laughter overflowing. She was present in the radiant smiles that could be glimpsed and soaked in and cherished as fuel for the journey. And she was of course present in the tears that often caught us off guard in the most unexpected moments. But mostly she was present in the love. We all embraced living this past weekend. Just as she would have wanted us to.
