For years after diagnosis, she was free and happy in ways she hadn't been before. She loved and felt with her whole, passionate heart. Now, knowing she doesn't seem to fully realize what is happening does give me some comfort.

More of Kimberly's books…
“This is what I came up with: My mother is not only presenting me an opportunity to love unconditionally, she’s also allowing me to practice being comfortable with what is uncomfortable. To grieve and also embrace what is broken. To know that some days I can receive who my mother is now and some days I struggle with it. To allow that two opposing thoughts may exist in my head at the same time.”
Kimberly Williams-Paisley, Where the Light Gets In: Losing My Mother Only to Find Her Again

“Ride the horse in the direction that it’s going.” Instead of wishing for things to be different, choose to embrace the life in front of you.”
Kimberly Williams-Paisley, Where the Light Gets In: Losing My Mother Only to Find Her Again

“What’s this like for you?” “It’s hard,” she said, and paused to think for a moment. “But I often find that messy, complicated situations bring people closer than we would be otherwise.”
Kimberly Williams-Paisley, Where the Light Gets In: Losing My Mother Only to Find Her Again

“Don't you think saying goodbye to your child will make your death more painful?"
"Wouldn't it be great if it did?" I said. Lucy and I both felt that life wasn't about avoiding suffering.”
Paul Kalanithi

“Real isn't how you are made,' said the Skin Horse. 'It's a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.'

'Does it hurt?' asked the Rabbit.

'Sometimes,' said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. 'When you are Real you don't mind being hurt.'

'Does it happen all at once, like being wound up,' he asked, 'or bit by bit?'

'It doesn't happen all at once,' said the Skin Horse. 'You become. It takes a long time. That's why it doesn't happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand.”
Margery Williams Bianco, The Velveteen Rabbit
