A thread of loss has woven it’s way into my today.

A phone call brought the news of the 27 year old son of a childhood friend ( who had a wife and a small child) who passed away just before Christmas.  Time is short for all of us.  None of us know when our time will end, we are such fragile creatures.  But I have today.  And I have now.   I will make the most of this every moment.

After 11 days of being disgustingly healthy my body paid me back; headache, upset tummy, no energy.  That’s okay.  Tomorrow is another day.

As the rain threw itself down ( and sometimes even around just for fun) a daughter and her beau of 10 months ended their relationship.  It was not right, and made her lately more miserable than happy.  I have been there for her all evening, with hugs, a listening ear and quiet non-intrusive support.  She knows she is loved.

I hate to see people I care about go through hurt and loss.

I want a magic wand that fixes everything.

  1. So are you, my friend. Maybe accompanying someone on that journey IS magic. Thank you for taking these few steps with me, too.

  2. Wouldn’t a magic wand be lovely? But sometimes the only thing that can heal is the love we give someone when they are hurting. Maybe that is magic after all 🙂 I hope you feel better. You’re doing great!
