I've Been A Little Distracted
And then today I learned that a friend of mine lost her 30 year old son in a camping/drowning accident yesterday. So I'm a little sad. I don't know how you get through that kind of grief unless you know what I know about where we came from, why we're here, and what happens next. Luckily, my friend knows. I'm not saying it takes away the gut wrenching grief and sense of loss, but at least you know the loss is only temporary. They're still out there, just around the corner, waiting for us to catch up. And that knowledge is what gets you out of bed every day, putting one foot in front of the other. Val is a great lady, and one of those noble souls - a kind of angel on earth - who always knows the right thing to say or do. She makes everyone feel good. It makes me wish I knew just the right thing to say and do right now. But knowing her, she'll be the one to make me feel better.
