Today marks the five year anniversary of the death of my best friend, the woman who brought me into this world.
When it first happened I didn’t know how I was going to get through it and busily went about going through the motions of my life. But I am happy to say that I am stronger today than I have ever been in these past five years.
Of course, I have my moments but this loss has no longer consumed me because I now realize that there is too much for me to LIVE for. Everything happens for a reason and unfortunately that occasionally includes the things that we really don’t want to happen.
So instead of mourning her death, today I’m celebrating re-gaining control of my life.
