A Mother’s Way

I went from a relatively carefree childhood (except for the divorce of my parents which was profound for a 3 year old) to my teen years (politically but not socially rebellious) to a well adjusted young lady and college graduate (serious, not promiscuous) to an NYU Master’s student (smart) to a married woman (maybe less smart) to becoming a Mom (best decision yet). All under the watchful eye of my mom.


That part of my life is now over because she passed away after a debilitating and valiant fight with Pancreatic cancer. The aftermath left me in deep shock and mourning, unable to absorb life without her. I had to climb out of low-lying cliffs, remote and jagged. Lopsided, as though a part of me had been amputated. I miss her daily.

The transition has not been an easy one, even though it has been years.

About wendykarasin

I am complicated and seeking - joy and sorrow, country and city, competition and cooperation. After behavior of a gregarious nature, I require down time to refuel. My loves are children, family, friends, reading, writing, blogging, fitness, and health. I feel most alive when I stay true to my core values. Beauty makes me happy, pain helps me grow.
