Black Beach at the 'End of the World'

Last weekend, my family went to a friend's place several hours north of the city. While the drive was long and temporarily stressful when the three kids got grumpily sleepy, it was all worth it.


Truth be told, I had cold feet the night before. It was the first time we were going somewhere as a family without mom. I couldn't bear the thought, but my sister talked me through it.
And well she did.

I Think of You at the Oddest Moments, Mom

You've been gone for almost two months now, and I can't say it's been easy, nor can I say that it's horribly tough. I suppose it's because of the difficult time we had since we learned that you had cancer late in 2013. No, difficult doesn't even begin to describe it.

I thought that your passing would be easy, compared to others, since we were "prepared" for it. As it turns out, we weren't.

Now that you're gone, I think of you at the oddest moments.
