I ran across a beautiful blog today (Thanks Momza!((she's on my sidebar))... yes, thanks for the tears and bloodshot eyes that I have to hide while I go to church)
In life when things get hard, or bad things happen, I like to ignore them.
Denial is not just a river in Egypt.
I read this beautiful 'prose' about a mother that has gone..... I couldn't help think of my dear niece Jessica and my sister Louisa that has been gone for 12 years.
Louisa was my best friend.. but more than that a beautiful patient creative mother to 3 fun loving children. They were 7,9, 11 when she died. I was extremely sick that year too, (wonder how my mother survived that year). It was hard on all of us. So I just like to tuck it in the back of my mind and forget about it... but beautiful posts like this bring it all forward.
Memories are always with us, and that is a bitter sweet pill to swallow. I'm sorry for those who have lost loved ones, especially this time of year when so many memories surround us in family traditions.
So go here to April's Affirmations and read this lovely post...
and bring tissues,
and make sure you don't have to go anywhere for a couple of hours!--
