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.
