We’re still feeling the heavy loss of Carrie Fisher and her mom Debbie Reynolds, so we can’t even imagine how their family has been coping.

But in an Instagram post, we see that Carrie’s daughter Billie Lourd is feeling ‘blessed on the inside’ — and her photo captures it beautifully.

From what we know about Billie and Carrie’s relationship, they were close and open with each other. Carrie raised Billie without gender as a defining factor and taught her to “find the funny,” so she was clearly a very thoughtful and progressive mom. It must be enormously difficult to lose such an inspiring presence.

This gorgeous snap doesn’t need any real caption — the “blasé on the outside, blessed on the inside” hashtag says it all. And the #findingthefunny hashtag is one she’s used before in reference to a quote from her mom,“If my life weren’t funny then it would just be true and that is unacceptable.” And that’s the special Carrie we love and miss.

It’s so incredible to see the way that Carrie’s positive attitude about life has informed Billie’s perspective, and it’s a beautiful lesson for us all.

As time moves on, we hope that Billie is able to continue reflecting on her mom and grandma in positive ways. She definitely comes from a one of a kind family of spirited women.

Sending lots of love Billie’s way!
