I’m Sorry I Didn’t Respond to Your Email, My Husband Coughed to Death Two Years Ago
Rachel Ward

Oh thank you. I lost my brother and my father within 3 months of each other a year ago. And about a year before that I separated from my husband. So it’s been a rough go of it.

But I so relate to your humor and vulnerability. I am such a happier and more connected person than I was a few years ago. I’ve been ripped wide open — more room for joy and sorrow. I’ll take it all. I’m all about being as alive as possible with whatever time I have left to do it. Losing two people unexpectedly has taught me that we have no guarantees. So, I say “yes” to life whenever it is feasible and some times when it’s not.

So big hugs to you, Rachel. You’re a total badass.
