Instead of wasting this precious time, she has decided to take a new approach at life: to sincerely make the best of it- as much as she can. With the strength she has left, she hopes to travel to visit her closest (and yet still distant) family one more time. Please help enrich her remaining life experience with hope & support.
Specifically Karen hopes to visit her mother and sister in Texas, daughter in Tennessee, and her other sister in Italy.
When I think about what my mom is going through, I can't help but hear Tim McGraw sing these lyrics:
"...That this might really be the real end
"How's it hit 'cha when you get that kind of news?
Man, what'd ya do?" He said,
I went skydiving, I went Rocky Mountain climbing
I went two point seven seconds on a bull named Fu Man Chu
And I loved deeper, and I spoke sweeter
And I gave forgiveness I'd been denyin'"
And he said, "Someday I hope you get the chance
To live like you were dyin'"
