Mrs RW

Have you ever thought that as hard as it is for you (well, maybe not YOU, but her kids) to say good-bye that it's even harder for her?

Dying is a series of letting go. Letting go of things, places, and finally, people. Maybe pushing you all away is how her mind copes with it: if SHE lets go, than you'll all have to.

Wise words, Mrs RW. Thanks. c

Mrs RW

I really am sorry that your family is going through such a hard time right now. Please give my bestest thoughts to T; I'm thinking and praying for all of you.


Absoutely you need to worry when she stars being soft. And I find with bristly people that they're often the most caring - they just don't know how to show it.

I hope T gets better. And it's not too hard on you all.
