They will come visit your kids and grandkids to check in on them, celebrate life’s triumphs with them, and talk about struggles with them. They are a constant, even when you are unable to be. I am so thankful for my mom’s People because last night, for those few hours of chatting, I felt so close to my mom. I could feel her in their strong embrace and hear her in their laughter. This. This is what life is all about. Find your people. Hold them close. 💚💚💚
