Quiet Reflection

March 8th, 2014

In the past 24 hours- (I started this several days ago and never saved, so that time span is longer now.) two families of people that I care about have lost loved ones. Neither was sudden, one was young (around 30)- the other, an older man, but far from old (in his 60’s).

My heart aches for these families- for their loss, as they try to find peace and understanding in situations that never make sense, but are a part of the journey of life.

I’ve been somewhat quiet lately to most- the exception being my own inner circle. I’ve been in what seems like a constant state of processing and finding some understanding of my own. Thankfully, Marcel has been in less pain, and his diagnosis has begun to sink in. We have a plan and what changes it means for our lives.

During my quietness- I also spent some time thinking about Carol, and the anniversary of her passing- which happened a few days ago. I smile when I think of all the joy she brought to my life, and the things I learned from her without her even knowing. Even now- I’m so grateful to her. She was a gift.

I’ve been thinking about life- and how it seems we, on many levels have become a disposable world. Have you noticed? It’s a topic for another day.

What I do know for sure is that we have this moment- right now and that everything else is a bonus.

Forgive wrongs, don’t waste time on being jealous or petty, and don’t judge others. You have no idea what they may be going through.
