“Healing starts the moment you accept the truth about what has happened. But healing doesn’t come quickly. When you know that death or pain has come, you face a moment when you stare that pain in the eyes and declare that you will not be defeated by it. Then you turn away and grieve.” Chris Pepple
Until recently I lead a very busy life, working full-time at a stressful corporate career, raising two wonderful children, being a wife, daughter and volunteer in my community.
In October of 2014, my husband and I decided that I would take a break to look after my 91-year-old mother that has been terminally ill for eight years, as she was really starting to fail.
