One of the women I’ve worked with for most of my career lost her 16 year old son to cancer last night.

She held herself together and continued to be the best mother. She provided care and comfort to her child first, everyone else second. I don’t think caring for herself even occurred to her. I’ve never seen such strength.

Full stop.
