This week, a fellow blogger, Terry, lost her brother Al to a terrible disease. She is not only his sister, but his caregiver. My heart is with her and her family.
Also, a dear friend of mine, Jill, lost her brother to another terrible disease just this morning. Again, a piece of my heart is with her and her family.
Death is a part of life. The part we humans hate. But is must happen. Grief is both terrible and beautiful. Those of us who have lost loved ones know what I mean.
However, when death comes it is hard. It is uncomfortable and yes, inconvenient. The world around us goes by as if nothing happened. Those of us who got stopped in our daily tracks by death wonder – how can they just keep going as if nothing happened? But life does move forward and we must, as times passes – simply because we are alive.
Babies are born everyday. Everyday there is new life. Everyday there is death. It happens and even though we do not understand it, it happens anyway.
My prayers are with my friends and their families. My prayers are with you all that have loved and lost. Prayers that help you ride the waves of grief and let healing and comfort fill you in the days and years ahead.
May you find peace and comfort.
