    "But I was learning that when the date you're commemorating represents the day your life changes forever, and not in a thrilling marry-the-love-of-your-life kind of way or a shocking assassination of the leader of the free world way, but in a bracingly personal and intimate way you must take notice. You have to honor the passage of time…everything before it was experienced through different eyes and in different skin. Fundamentally something changed. There is a bold line of demarcation drawn with a thick black Sharpie across your chest and underneath it in small print it reads, there is no going back." -- Excerpt from Jude Callirgos's book, Breast Left Behind Last week commemorated 9-years since my mother's death. I will miss her and love her forever.

    "We must try to contribute joy to the world," said Roger Ebert. "That is true no matter what our problems, our health, our circumstances. We must try. I didn't always know this and am happy I lived long enough to find it out."

    The lyrics in Weathervane by Kris Delmhorst "I make a really good friend when there's an end in sight." A bittersweet, joyful truth. My mom had such wonderful, loving friends.

    This weekend, my mother-in-law was telling me a story about my niece visiting an animal refuge in Cleveland and imitating a fox. Her facial expressions cracked me up.

    I'm reading the book, "Left to Tell", and the author, Immaculee Ilibagiza, a survivor of the Rwandan holocaust writes: "I was living proof of the power of prayer and positive thinking, which really are almost the same thing. God is the source of all positive energy, and prayer is the best way to tap in to His power."
