my friend tracy lost her mom this week, unexpectedly. I cried when I heard, could feel the heartbreak one hundred times over. today, she wrote something really beautiful. beautiful because it comes from a profoundly brave, honest place, but also because it comes from a deeply painful, nearly unthinkable place. I love her for writing it. I know how hard it was. I wish I didn't but I do. I know. your mom would have been so proud, tracy. you will see her in every wide open sky, every technicolor sunset, she will show up again and again in the most unexpected places. I know this to be true. I do.
