It’s been a hard couple of weeks, to say the least.
I think it’s going to take more hard weeks just to process what my sister (and my husband, boys, and uncle) have gone through with the recent passing of my mother.
I wish I could write how I feel, but I think it’s a little too personal and a little too fresh.
All I can say, right now, is, even with the sun shining outside, it still feels a little dreary inside.
I am sad.
I know, though, with much prayer, time, and the beautiful and life-giving love of friends and family, this, too, shall pass.
The sun will shine again.
And, it will shine brightly.
“You will lose someone you can’t live without,and your heart will be badly broken, and the bad news is that you never completely get over the loss of your beloved. But this is also the good news. They live forever in your broken heart that doesn’t seal back up. And you come through. It’s like having a broken leg that never heals perfectly—that still hurts when the weather gets cold, but you learn to dance with the limp.”
