The healing in our silence

I’ve been very quiet of late on my blog and on social media and it’s an affect of losing my mother a few months ago when she passed away peacefully in hospital.  She was 88 years old and she was ready to leave this world, so there was little trauma attached to letting her go.  I felt privileged to have been there with her in her final moments. Although I felt sadness and the wave of grief that is known to me through other losses, I also felt a calm equilibrium underneath it.
