The Ocean Washes Away
Today is a sad day. Thinking about family and loss.
An old friend lost his son today. He battled so long and hard to fight the disease that I am in shock that the disease won. I really thought it wouldn't. Loss of life is always sad, but it seems even more unfair and painful when the person is young.
And a dear friend is losing her mother right now. And again, I was surprised by this. I did not want to believe that this would happen.
And this is all painfully reminding me of the recent loss of my mother-in-law. Again, a surprise and a shock. I did not think that would happen.
And this too reminds me of other friends and family who have recently suffered painful situations and loss.
Today I am thinking of all of them.
