Manage episode 237946319 series 1429114
This week marks the two year anniversary of my mother in law’s passing, and in her loving memory I’m re-airing this story about how my magical engagement overlapped with her tragic death, and how that taught me to live the crap out of my days and share my non-crap food even more. There’s nothing really funny about this episode, it’s more like a chapter from a Nicholas Sparks book with a dash of a Tony Robbins seminar and a sprinkle of the trailer of the movie Serendipity. That made absolutely no sense but really, life doesn’t make much sense, and that’s actually what this episode is about. How good people die. How even sick people stubbornly stick to their ways. How ‘waiting till you’re ready’ is both mature and wise but also foolish and wrong. Here’s my [hopefully inspiring] story of how I got engaged while cancer stole the life of my fiancé’s mother.
