The One We Fight Daily

I have a deadline looming at work and so I headed back to the office on Tuesday of this week, just four days after saying goodbye to my mom at her funeral celebration. It's been nice, in a way, to be distracted by the busyness and pace of a workday, but it also feels strange to be conversing and laughing and planning with colleagues who don't know about this massive, life-altering event that just happened in my world, like all is well and good. As thoughts of my mom continue to rush over me almost constantly while I'm simultaneously trying to move on, I'm reminded of a quote I once read by David O. McKay, the former President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

"The most important of life's battles is the one we fight daily in the silent chambers of the soul."
