Writing (About) Life (When It's Hard)

Just a short post to tell you that my 97-year-old mother, who suffered from Alzheimer's, had a second heart attack the day before Thanksgiving and passed away the day after. I am so many things right now. It is possible to feel sorrow and relief at the the same time. And exhaustion. And yet, somehow, feel numb, too. Alzheimer's is a terrible disease, and it is a comfort to know that she is at peace at last.
