In between goals and endless plans is a thing called life, that has to be lived and enjoyed. We often forget to stop and take it all in. What a mistake.
This morning my beautiful friend of 20 years is held by God as her life on earth nears the end. The candle I lit as I was still and thinking of her burns low. It's just a matter of time now. A little boy saids goodbye to an amazing mother and a marriage filled with love ends. It is just so sad. I'm so grateful for knowing her. Distance didn't change that. I'm letting her go with love and blessing but I'm broken. And that is ok. The tide of grief is high. I don't understand why cancer has to rob the world of those so young. It makes me want to scream and punch pillows. The tears are falling and today I'll hug my children a little tighter for me more than them. Today is awful but it's life. I am present and grateful for my life. It's so precious don't waste it.
Psalm 3:5-6, 34:15,17, Proverbs 46:1.
