I feel numb. I feel pain. I feel grief. My aunt just passed away this week and then on top of that I find out that my mother's best friend passed away,too.
I am well acquainted with grief ---we have known each other since I was 16 and my dad passed away.Then,my mother passed away when I was 24. Grief just keeps coming for a visit.It had stopped visiting me for a few years as I got married .Then,my grandmother-in-law passed away.For the next few years,my parents'friends that I knew in my childhood were passing away...now it's family again.
I am depressed,but I know that's part of the process of saying good-bye to a person's physical body. I have the memories in my heart and grief can't take that away.
I also know Jesus as my Saviour and He helps my hurt day-by-day.
But for now,the pain is there and it hurts....
