"I don't ever want you to die, Mommy. Because I couldn't live without you," said my daughter, whose heart is so bursting with love and adoration (sometimes for me!) at this stage of her ten-year-old life that she is sometimes compelled to think about the losses of death and dying.

I am compelled to stop, and not take for granted that I love being her mother. I love being the mother of a daughter. I love that Korah Lee.

I don't know how I'd live without you either, love.
