July 11, 2013 – Inspired by Moving Forward
I am so blessed. So many people have reached out in the last few weeks. They have let me know that I am not alone. And, I feel Mom with me every day. It’s so different. I cannot quite wrap my brain around the fact that her physical form is several feet under the ground. My eyes fill with tears and my throat tightens, and I look for a tissue to wipe my nose. Then I breathe in and breathe out.
I am working on trying to remember what I was doing a month ago when Mom was first going to the doctor. I spent this week finding new schooling for the kids. We found an amazing school for them. If I were to build a school for my children, it would be this school. We can’t possibly afford it. We are jumping through all the hoops, including financial aid, and praying a lot. I have faith. I know that G-d provides.
One bit really struck me about the location of the school. Across the street from it is a sign called “Gigi’s Playhouse”. (It’s for down syndrome children.) Gigi was the name my children called my mom.
I do not believe in coincidences.
Everything happens for a reason, even if we don’t understand it at the time.
We are moving forward. The path is changing from anything I envisioned it to be. I am open to it.
