I am not gonna tell you today
what I learned in life.
Today, I am gonna try to tell you
what I learned in death.
One year and thirteen days ago,
I lost my husband, Dave.
His death was sudden and unexpected.
Dave's death changed me
in very profound ways
I learned about the depths of sadness
and the brutality of loss.
But I also learned that
when life sucks you under,
you can kick against the bottom,
find the surface,
and breathe again.
So ten days after Dave died,
my kids went back to school
and I went back to work.
I remember sitting in my first Facebook meeting
in a total haze.
Thinking "What is everyone talking about?
and how could this possibly matter?"
And then I got drawn into the conversation
and for a second,
the briefest of all second,
I forgot about death.
That second helped me see that there were
other things in my life
that were not awful.
My children and I were healthy.
My friends and family, some of them are with me today,
were carying us, quite literally.
I am sharing this with you today
in the hopes that on this day in your life,
with all the momentum and joy,
you can learn in life the lessons
I only learned in death
Lessons about hope,
about strength,
and about the light within us
that will not be extinguished.
It is the greatest irony of my life
that losing my husband helped me
find deeper gratitude.
