Healing and gratitude through writing

Today, 6 weeks after my mom’s death, I wrote a tribute to her for the National Catholic Reporter; one of the editors had invited readers to share about loved ones who have died of COVID 19. In writing this short piece, I felt again the loss and realized I wanted to capture for others who she was. It was a time of healing and gratitude as I put into words some of her qualities and some of my memories. It was good for me to have done this.
