Time moves slowly, yet rushes by in a heartbeat.
Or, rather, it keeps on moving, long after a heart beats its final beat.
Today marks the one year anniversary since my mom’s heart beat its final beat in this world.
I miss her so much, especially as the holidays approach.
Memories- of the good times, along with the most heart-wrenching, agonizing moments- come flooding back with a vengeance.
It’s almost unbearable sometimes.
Words may be failing me lately…
Yet my mom managed to sum life up to perfection in one of her own blog posts:
For every downhill battle, there will be an uphill victory.
For every backward tread, there will be a forward initiative.
For every letdown, there will be contentment.
For every tear, there will be a smile.
Sometimes what seems to be the end, could be just a beginning.
Life is full of endless detours and turnarounds.
Giving up is not an option. Never was, never will be.
My beautiful angel mom.
