The Lord has blessed me in so many ways.
My cousin's children are having challenges.
One was looking for a 'small memento' to remember the day and her Mom. She shared what her sisters had claimed and said there was nothing left for her. The beautiful sympathy bouquet I blogged about yesterday was promptly gotten and given to her along with information on how to preserve the flowers. This caused her to beam.
Helping with a couple of 'behind the scene' items aided me in my perception of my role in my cousin's life - aiding her.
I could truly paraphrase the Borodin Boy who said 'He's not heavy, he's my brother' with 'she's my cousin'. I hadn't realized how others had appreciated my being there for Judy over the nearly 3 decades of her illness until today.
God is good.
