What are the “True Thoughts of Loss”? Really??? It TOTALLY SUCKS!
Truly! The loss of someone so close….especially in such a sudden tragic way is VERY hard…..
Even with Faith…with belief in a higher power….realizing that God IS God….
It is STILL difficult! It is just Faith that helps….it gives the strength to know that there IS some greater good…..a good that is BIGGER than we are….that is outside of us….that we cannot see….
We cannot see this BIGGER good because we are TOO close! We are TOO close to the origin!
I guess that is the TRUE secret!
The knowledge and the true HOPE that our BELOVED has somehow bridged the gap…has SOMEHOW impacted lives in such a way….that even in his/her death….the result is a GREATER impact on ALL those around him/her!
In my case….I have had the TRUE pleasure….the TRUE blessing….of seeing FIRST HAND the HUGE impact that my Sister had on the lives on those around her!
My Sis….is a TRUE living testament to a LIVING…BREATHING…God…..
Thank you Lord for holding my Sis Close!!!
As a Mom (or Dad), we put our family first! Our kids…our spouses are the most important. We do all we can to make their lives the best we possibly can. We push ourselves…we put our families first…
We do this without thought for ourselves. We push ourselves…
We witnessed firsthand our parents and grandparents efforts. We saw that they gave…..they gave of themselves. We witnessed firsthand their struggle….even if they tried to hide it from us.
I know my parents did their best to hide the financial struggle from us (meaning us kids)….I know that I was too acutely aware as to their predicament…
I want only the best for our son….just as my parents wanted for me. I want only the best for our son….just as my hubby wants…just as his parents want.
We work hard to provide….to provide better opportunities…
I know that I based initial life decisions on my concern of my parents financial needs (knowing there were other siblings)….I hope that I can encourage our son to make the decisions he will need to make irregardless of our financial state.
Resting in my comfy chair recuperating from my latest surgery I can’t help but think…..when I lie in bed at night after prayers are said….my mind races…or rather wanders…..thoughts, experiences, dreams.
My restless mind reminds me of life…..the twists and turns….the ups and downs. Of decisions, life’s lessons…..relationships…..friendships…..the unseen, yet very felt, Hand of God.
Each day provides opportunity….choices….decisions to be made. Our goal is to make the most of each day….to make the best decisions we can for ourselves and our loved ones.
To choose to embrace challenges presented to us….to turn them into opportunities that allow us to grow….to become stronger….to give more of ourselves….to appreciate every single moment of every single day.
