In March 2018, I suddenly lost my mother to a heart attack. I was her caregiver at the time, and the time I got to spend with her during that time was a great gift...her sweet spirit made my home a pleasant place to be and it was a privilege to be in a wfh job situation where I could give her the care she needed. Her sudden loss cut me to the core. Then my brother found out he had pancreatic cancer 3 months later, and he died a couple of months after that. Another sweet soul who was beloved by his community, family, and colleagues. It is difficult to sit here and write this on Mother’s Day, but I needed an outlet for all the emotions I am feeling. I don’t know how to get past all of this loss...it’s just so hard.
