Pieces of Peace

Obviously I can't sleep tonight given the cold that is now in day 5. Today started as one of sadness as I learned that Kristin had lost her sweet Mother last evening. I doubt that the fact that she had been ill for some time brings little comfort or preparation to she and her family during this difficult time. While there are few things that bring comfort during times like this there is a knowledge that does help us understand and allow peace fill our heart.

On the B Side: I am grateful to know that death is not the end, that life is eternal and that we will see our loved ones again. It's reassuring to know that the end of this life marks yet another necessary step in our eternal progression. It's easy to get so caught up in life that we forget to look at the big picture. This clip reminded me of the things that are most important all over again.

(and Kristin) I'm so sorry for the loss of her (your) mother. All I can tell you is that they stay with you for a long time, not only in memory but in actual presence.

It was so good to see you yesterday and thanks for reminding (prodding)me to update my blog--I will get to it.

In the meantime, I've enjoyed catching up on yours.
