A couple of weeks ago, Corey came to her sister and said: Stop making this so hard. It does not have to be hard. Remember how we relaxed in our bikinis on our floaties on the pond? Relaxing, floating on the cool water, in the sun. Just float. Be in your bikini on the floatie.
As 2013 falls away and 2014 rises towards us, I take Corey's advice to heart. I promise, I pledge, to try to be on my floatie in the pond as I go through each day and each night trying to reconfigure my life as the mother of a wonderful daughter who has…passed out of the physical form.
