Smiling When Smiling Is Difficult: Taking Time Out for Susan

Since this time last year, not too many days go by before thoughts of Susan pop in my head.  I think about her life, her accomplishments, her spirit, her last days, her husband and kids – so often about her kids.  But most of all, I think about her resolve.  For her family, her work, her health, her friends…she’s a continued source of inspiration and perspective. And I miss her.  Today, I’ll be spending the morning with good girlfriends, smiling, sharing and taking time out to celebrate our friend.  It will be bittersweet…and we’ll all be wishing she was laughing with us.

And she very well might be.

    Her resolve — yes, that is a word I should have thought of when thinking of describing her. More than determination. Resolve.

    Hugs to you!
