A friend sent me the link to this reading on YouTube by author Kelly Corrigan today. I watched with tears in my eyes. Tears because I feel so fortunate to feel in my heart the meaning of her words. Tears because I'm lucky to have the type of loving friendships with amazing women of all ages like those of which she speaks. Tears because it is in our times of facing the impossible, that we find the best of who we are and the amazingness of those who share our lives. Tears because as a daughter, a mother, and a friend I too believe women are amazing creatures. Tears because I know that as life moves forwards, with all its joys and pains, victories and challenges, I too will transcend.
