My life should leave its mark:
Evidence that I existed
More than my scars
Or disappointments
More than every day life
And doing and being.

My life should leave a mark:
Not the pain of my childhood
But how I perserveered, not the
Scars of my son’s death
But how I honored him by
Moving on.

And honor him, you do, Judy, in so many ways!

What a beautiful poem about healing Judy. You are really and icon for me in this area of healing emotionally.

Victoria said...

Yes Judy. You are a great example of a person not being defined by her pain. The important things aren't what happens to us, but what we make of them.

Yes,Judy what you say is the way to honour our dear ones who left us...
