Liberation. That’s truly what it was to understand this message.
My grandmother said those same words to me when I was 25. I was sad and felt alone even though I had a great family, job and friends. At the time she said them it was this time of year. We were walking through her back woods as we always did when I drove down for a weekend. My grandfather was a month away from dying of cancer. Her strength knowing she was going to lose her life partner showed me being alone was nothing to fear only something to embrace.
