THE MIRACLE OF LIFE – THE DEVASTATION OF DEATH

How do you process the two emotions in the same day, in the same moment?

My niece delivered her precious baby boy yesterday.  His birthday is 11-12-13; how wonderful!

My daughter’s 21 year old friend died 12 hours later in a car accident.  How crushing!

Both have left me clinging to my sweet 1 ½ year old grandson as I rejoice in new life and mourn for a woman who will never again hold her son.  Surreal and numbing when these two collide.

A blow of reality where the circle of life shows its completion simultaneously.

Such a gift of undisclosed time.
