Ten years have come and gone since I got the phone call that rattled my world. Being 19 and finding out your mother passed in the night is not something that anyone can prepare for, nor know how to navigate. But I was supported by friends and family, and some people I didn't even know... Really, I suffered loss, but I gained love.
My brother and I took time this year to celebrate on anniversary of that day. I remember singing a song in high school that said, "There'll be joy in the morning on that day.." I know of the day that song spoke of, but I also know this: TODAY there is joy. My morning has come.
