How do you say goodbye to the ones you love? Growing Bolder blogger Karen Putz recently shared a story that we think will inspire you and have you thinking about your own life.
As Karen's mother reached the end of a fierce battle with congestive heart failure, hospice nurses let the family know that their time left was short.
In Karen's own words:
"...We gave Mom a living memorial. It wasn’t planned. The process simply unfolded each day. We flooded the house with food, people, and memories. We watched old family videos. We cooked her favorite foods. We sang songs. We celebrated her life. And we cried.
Karen goes on to share the magical final moments the family spent together and it's a beautiful reminder that while life is short, every interaction counts.
Through it all, something magical was happening. Mom was happy. It was a beautiful thing to see her smiling each day, surrounded by love."
