Excellent article! I am 40, and I just lost my mom to lung cancer. She was 64. She was diagnosed in February and gone Oct. 5th. You are right that it gives a whole new perspective on the circle of life. It also does give that connection of your own mortality. As you put it, we're next in line (though hopefully I have a LONG way to go :) ). I realized I did a lot of the things you suggested, and it really was helpful. Most helpful was just always remembering to be gentle with myself. I think this was a wonderful post! I hope those that need it will find it.

Im sorry about your mom, and glad that you found the article helpful. Im 55 in a few days and mortality is more on my mind.
