Last weekend’s Edward Jones Wacky Weekend in Dallas, Texas was a blast! I will have a better post about it all as soon as I have pictures (they are coming soon!).
As I’m diving back into work this week, I finally found the time to watch a 15 minute TED Talk given by Amanda Bennett, a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist. Her talk, “The Cost of Hope” not just pulled on my heart strings, but shredded them to pieces. As she describes her husband’s journey with cancer, I am acutely aware of the parallels to Nick’s journey. Amanda describes the power of living (and dying) with HOPE and her message was very healing for me. Nick and I never said goodbye, either, because we embraced HOPE rather than death. I have had many sleepless nights wondering if we were wrong in not verbalizing the inevitable; this talk silenced those lingering doubts.
May HOPE bless you all.
